What is Keto?
The ketogenic diet is based on the principle of starving the body of carbohydrates & sugars, which are its primary source of energy, you can force the body to burn fat instead of sugar for fuel, thereby maximising weight loss, reducing sugar cravings and increasing energy levels.
When we eat foods that contain carbohydrates, the body converts those carbohydrates into glucose, or blood sugar, which it then uses for energy.
Because glucose is the simplest form of energy for the body to use, it’s always used for energy before your body turns to stored fat for fuel.
However, while eating carbs, or indeed sugars and your body uses these sugars for fuel (energy); once depleted of sugars, your body then crave sugars... creating the vicious circle of weight gain, bad health, diabetes and potential cancer growth.
On a ketogenic diet, the goal is to restrict carbohydrate intake so that the body must break down fat for energy. When this occurs, fat is broken down in the liver, thereby producing ketones, which are by-products of your metabolism. These ketones are then used to fuel the body in the absence of glucose.
Keto — which refers to the high-fat, low-carb ketogenic diet. With claims that you can eat all the fat you want, never feel hungry again, lower your blood sugar if you have type 2 diabetes, and even boost your athletic performance, the diet promises something for everyone.
The diet was created in 1924 as a treatment for epilepsy, but the effects of this eating pattern are also being studied for type 2 diabetes and some forms of cancer.
The ketogenic diet may improve blood glucose (sugar) levels while also reducing the need for insulin. However, the diet does come with risks, so make sure to discuss it with Dr. K before making drastic dietary or exercise changes.
