There’s a newish diet that’s all the rage on the healthier side of the internet. The ketogenic diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet created back in the 1920s as a treatment for epilepsy. In many ways this diet is similar to the low-carb Atkins diet, but differs in the emphasis it places on consuming healthy fats. The way this diet works is that it makes your body to burn fat to make molecules called ketones. These ketones are have a positive effect on those afflicted with epilepsy. However the diet fell out of popularity as a treatment for epilepsy when anticonvulsant medication was introduced. Even after it fell out of popularity for epilepsy treatment it has continued to gain more and more interest as a weight loss and method for managing type 2 diabetes.
5 Reasons Keto Might Be For You:
- Keto Suppresses Your Appetite
Keto produces a satiating effect thanks to those good fats and proteins. It also causes your blood glucose to drop which will also cut those cravings.
- Better Fat Use
The Keto diet allows your body to better tap into those fat stores for energy.
- Fat Burning
The main idea behind the keto diet is to get your body into ketosis. Ketosis reduces fat formation and boosts fat burning in your body because the diet mimics fasting but without going through the hunger pains.
- Burn More Calories
Carbs are an easy to use fuel for your body. Proteins and fats on the other hand require more energy for digestion, absorption, and use than carbs. This means your body is spending more calories at rest trying to break down and use all that protein and fat your eating.
- Keto Just Works
The reason reducing carbs and raising your protein and fat intake helps you lose weight has a lot to do with your blood glucose and hunger hormones. Carbs create an insulin response which leads to fluctuations in your insulin levels as it spikes and triggers the hunger hormone ghrelin. Since the Keto diet is low-carb it doesn’t cause spikes in blood sugar. Instead, it keeps these levels low suppressing your appetite naturally and making you eat less. So over time as you become keto adapted not only do you lower your blood sugar but you also eat less calories.
