What is the keto diet?
The keto diet simply refers to the body being in a state called ketosis. While in this state the body’s primary fuel source comes from dietary and/or stored body fat. This is different than the body using carbohydrates (carbs) as it’s primary fuel source as most people are accustomed to.
Limiting your carb intake to 25g net or less (net refers to the vegetables and other minimal carb sources eaten minus their fiber content) will put the body in ketosis within 72 hours depending on the individual and the amount of stored glycogen. Some will be able to consume more carbs each day and stay in ketosis. This is dependent on a variety of factors, intensity of physical activity seems to be the greatest factor. Individual carb levels can be tested following several months in ketosis.
Over a very relative short period of time the body becomes what is termed as “fat adapted,” meaning it is far more efficient at burning fat for energy. For those looking to live leaner, healthier and stronger, with far less body fat, this is fantastic news.
Having stable blood sugar, and more importantly, stable insulin levels creates numerous health benefits for those who have had a history or insulin problems, including insulin resistance and diabetes. Many diabetics thrive on the ketogenic diet as a result of completely stable blood sugar levels throughout the entire day.
The ketogenic diet originated in the early 1900’s as a way of preventing a particular type of seizures in children, now it is being recognized and studied as a treatment or component of treatment to treat a variety of neurological disorders.
If you have struggled to lose body fat, or to keep it off after it is gone for a period of time, and show signs of insulin resistance, this plan will be optimal to help you relearn what types of carbs make you healthiest and happiest, and in what amounts you should eat them. The information I’ve included in this beginner keto diet plan is inspired by the work of the most recognized and respected ketogenic researchers and advocates.
