Everything You Need To Know About Keto Diet

Published : Aug 23, 2019 2 mins read Updated On : Sep 15, 2023

Ketogenic or Keto diet comes from the fact that our body, specifically our liver produces ketones. It produces them when you don't have enough insulin in your body to turn glucose into energy. Because your body needs another source, it uses fat instead. Turns this fat into ketones, a type of acid, and sends them into your bloodstream.

Everything You Need To Know About Keto Diet

The ketogenic diet is a very low-carb high-fat diet

The diet contains a drastic reduction of carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat. This reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis. When this happens, your body becomes incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy.

The standard ketogenic diet (SKD): This is a very low-carb, moderate-protein and high-fat diet. It typically contains 75% fat, 20% protein and only 5% carbs

The cyclical ketogenic diet (CKD): This diet involves periods of higher-carb refeeds, such as 5 ketogenic days followed by 2 high-carb days.

The targeted ketogenic diet (TKD): This diet allows you to add carbs around workouts.

High-protein ketogenic diet: This is similar to a standard ketogenic diet, but includes more protein. The ratio is often 60% fat, 35% protein and 5% carbs

The ketogenic diet actually originated as a tool for treating neurological diseases such as epilepsy.

Studies have now shown that the diet can have benefits for a wide variety of different health conditions:

  • Heart disease: The keto diet can improve risk factors like body fat, HDL cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and blood sugar.
  • Cancer: The diet is currently being used to treat several types of cancer and slow tumor growth.
  • Alzheimer's disease: The keto diet may reduce symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and slow its progression.
  • Epilepsy: Research has shown that the keto diet can cause massive reductions in seizures in epileptic children.
  • Parkinson's disease: One study found that the diet helped improve symptoms of Parkinson's disease.

The most important thing for reaching ketosis is to avoid eating too many carbs. You’ll probably need to keep carb intake under 50 grams per day of net carbs, ideally below 20 grams. The fewer carbs, the more effective it appears to be for reaching ketosis, losing weight or reversing type 2 diabetes.

Water is the perfect drink, and coffee or tea is fine too. Ideally, use no sweeteners, especially not sugar.

While doing ketosis body loses vitamins and minerals so to keep the body's nutrition appropriate use Fast&Up Vitalize which is formulated with 12 Vitamins, 9 Minerals and Natural Nitrate Rich Beetroot Extract to fill nutritional gaps and maintain overall health daily.
