Listen up, folks! The Ketogenic Diet has proven itself effective not only in healthy weight-loss, but also in curing and protecting from diseases like cancer and diabetes.
Well, we’ve all heard it before: “You can’t possibly lose weight with all the fats you eat!”, “Are you seriously eating cheese while you’re on a diet?” Now, it seems like the tables have turned in favor of our beloved meat balls and cheesy bites. That is because The Ketogenic Diet, commonly referred to as the Keto Diet, is becoming the new trend for weight loss strategies. The diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet that shifts your metabolism towards fats instead of carbs. This process makes your body focus on burning fats rather than carbs leading to a quick yet healthy weight loss. In one case in particular, a woman lost 50 kilos in just 15 months following the Keto Diet plan.
The Keto Diet basically requires you eating more fats and less carbs. So, you can feel free to eat fatty foods including all types of meat, fatty fish, butter and cream, eggs, unprocessed cheese and low-carb vegetables such as tomatoes. On the rather downside, you cannot eat high-carb foods such as any type of sugary foods including sodas and cakes, grains, beans and unhealthy fats including processed vegetable oil and mayonnaise. The most shocking foods on the not-to-eat list are root vegetables and fruits, except for small amounts of berries.
The Keto Diet secures your bodies from different types of diseases. The fact that it improves your insulin sensitivity and shifts the body’s focus on losing fats rather than carbs greatly benefits those who suffer from type 2 diabetes and prediabetes. The diet can also help cure from and reduce the risks of diseases like heart disease, Parkinson disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. Not only that, but it is also being used to cure certain types of cancer and limit tumor growth.
The diet has been extremely efficient in many cases, and the best thing is that you rarely feel hungry owing to the amount of fat you eat. This makes it safe to assume that it is one of the best diets at the moment. So, do you think this diet is worth the try?
