Weight Loss and The Ketogenic Diet

The Ketogenic Diet is one of the newest and most hotly talked about dieting trends that have hit the country in years. It seems like everywhere you go on social media or in the “real world,” at least someone you know has an amazing success story involving Keto. And while this way of eating follows in the familiar footsteps of a number of other diets that have since gone by the wayside, the Keto Diet does have a few impressive health benefits as well as surprising weight loss results. If you can find the willpower to push through the diet’s downsides, that is. This comprehensive guide to the Ketogenic Diet will help cut through all the misinformation when it comes to going Keto and will help you understand what this diet is all about. We’ll take a closer look at ketosis, what’s allowed on the diet, some of the pros and cons of Keto, and what you can expect when it comes to how Ketogenic will affect your health. Plus, we’ll also take a look at some of the alternatives that are getting the job done quicker and easier than Keto – meaning you’ll be able to drop those unsightly pounds without having to trudge through the drawbacks of this trending new diet.

You’ve probably heard the Ketogenic Diet referred to in a couple of different ways – the Keto Diet, low carb diet, LCHF (low-carb, high-fat). But no matter how you refer to it, there’s one core tenet of this diet that reigns supreme: cut the carbs. That’s because, with fewer carbs in your daily diet, your body is much quicker to jump into a process known as “ketosis.” Ketosis is when your system switches over to burning fat after it has run through all of your stores of carbohydrates. It follows, then, that with fewer carbs in your body, the quicker you can start using fat for energy and, thus, shedding those unsightly pounds. Proponents of the Ketogenic Diet also claim that in addition to weight loss, you’ll also experience a number of other physical and psychological benefits as well, including • Improved cardiovascular health • Lowered cancer risks • Clearer skin • Better brain functioning • Fewer headaches • More energy While the science is still out on many of these claims, the Ketogenic Diet does have a history of treating epilepsy and in promoting weight loss when the diet is followed correctly. To get the most benefits out of Keto, Keto enthusiasts claim that your diet should be limited to around 50g of total carbs per day. One important caveat to remember here, though, is that the total carbs digested are often offset by the grams of fiber in each serving. If a serving has 20g total carbs and 12g of fiber then, only about 8g of carbs will end up impacting your body. This final measure is what’s known as net carbs, and most Keto users point to around 20g to 30g of net carbs a day as being a solid goal. In the end, the more time you spend in ketosis (marked by the absence of carbs in your system), the more fat you’ll burn through – and the more weight you’ll lose.
