3 Things You Need to Know About the Ketogenic Diet

April 7th, 2017 | Eating, Resources

Are you still living in fear of eating too much fat?

Once considered detrimental to health and body composition, dietary fat is now making a comeback in the world of diets and nutrition.

The Ketogenic Diet – or, Keto Diet for short – is the center of conversation on this topic. Originally used as a method to treat epilepsy, many people are finding long-term health and weight-loss effects from this fat-burning food plan.

Here are 3 things you need to know about the Keto Diet:

1.FAT
Fat is where it’s at in this diet. It centers around constructing every meal with QUALITY dietary fat sources as the main component. Fatty meats and seafood, avocado, eggs and nuts are all examples of staples in the Ketogenic Diet. The rest of your meal should be comprised of a moderate amount of protein and little to no carbohydrates.

2. YOU DON’T NEED CARBS
While glucose via carbohydrates is the most efficient fuel source for the body, it doesn’t need carb in order to survive. With an adequate abundance of fat in the diet, your body shifts into ‘fat-burning’ mode – which means it uses that fat and stored body fat for energy. It’s a process called ‘ketosis’ – which is where the Keto Diet gets its name from.

3. SIDE EFFECTS
Many people who adapt to the Ketogenic Diet experience side effects that include:

  • Weight Loss
  • Decreased inflammation
  • Relief from Metabolic Disorders
  • Clear thoughts/heightened ability to focus

While this covers the basics, there is SO much more to know about the details and health benefits of the Keto Diet.

Obesogens …Obese-o-what?

Endocrine disruptors, also known as “OBESOGENS”, are lurking all around us and may be a key factor in making America FAT and SICK.  As you may realize, obesity is an epidemic and chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes continue to escalate.

So…what role do obesogens play?

Obesogens are environmental toxins found in food, water, insecticides, plastics, cleaning products, cosmetics, etc. that negatively affect metabolism and may predispose some to weight gain. They mimic our own hormones and confuse or disrupt natural hormone production.
