So, what is the talk of the town folks? I mean if I specifically pay attention to the new trend of getting in the perfect shape or to have a perfect body-type with the assistance of desired diet plans and weight loss programmes, I am sure one is definitely aware about the ketogenic diet. Is it the best way to shed those extra kilos? Well, maybe. But one should be aware about what exactly it is. It is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that offers many health benefits
- [15-30% calories from protein]
- [5-10% calories from carbs]
- [60-17% calories from Fat]
A lot of research studies say that this type of diet can help an individual to lose weight and improve health. Ketogenic diets have also been considered beneficial to keep away chronic ailments such as diabetes, cancer, epilepssy and Alzheimer’s.
The ketogenic diet is known to have similarities with the Atkins and low-carb diets. It involves the minimal intake of carbohydrates, almost keeping it to null and replacing it with high-fat ingredients. The deduction of carbs in the diet puts the body into a metabolic state called ketosis. And when this process starts to take place in the body, it becomes incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy. It also turns fat into ketones in the liver, which can supply energy for the brain. Ketogenic diets, if followed by diabetic patients can also help in reducing blood sugar and insulin levels. This, along with the increased ketones, has varied health benefits.
So, I suppose if one is really planning to get their desired body weight and aspire to be their best versions possible then ‘KETO DIET’ can definitely be the right option to opt for. Though the best version of oneself exists only in the head of an individual and it really does not have anything to do with someone’s physical outlook. But that definitely does not mean that one should forget about their health. It is rightly said that ‘HEALTH IS WEALTH’. And it of course, holds true because if someone is overweight and in a way, unhealthy, he/she would surely be prone to more diseases than a healthy human being. Therefore, it is advisable to stay in shape and be healthy.
