Ketogenic diet is a special case of the low-carb diet. It is even lower in carb than a low carb diet which means that there are fewer low net-carb vegetables and more nuts and oils. Otherwise, the keto (ketogenic) nutritional plan is simlar to the low-carb meal. Many people are interested in keto because it does seem to work miracles for fat loss. Before we go into WHY it works lets get this standard explanation of how keto works out of the way: The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted to glucose which is transported around the body for energy. However, if there is very little carbohydrate in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketones which server as the energy source. An elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood, a state known as ketosis. Many will go on further to create complicated explanations of how keto increases the metabolic rate and amplifies the fat loss beyond what could be expected from the caloric deficit. Maybe its true, maybe its not, but honestly, I dont buy it. I do not dispute that keto is great for fat loss, I have seen its results in myself but I think the r Continue reading >>

    Hi! I'm a 21 y/o female (former youth professional football player with Arsenal FC) so come from a huge sporty background and used to be fit as a fiddle. Long story short during a game I was tackled to the ground and the cartilage in my right knee essentially split into two. 2 operations, years of physio etc later agony has increased as my spine has begun to twist. I can't do any physical exercise apart from swimming (which I aim to do 3 hours of a week) but can barely even stand for more than 15 mins or so without pain. I also suffer from IBS and find Keto is fab for curing the symptoms! I like the diet (as long as I get a few breaks here and there) but was just wondering if keto would aid me to lose weight even without intense exercise to boot? I'm a Biomedical Scientist so understand the biomechanics behind it but it's a little out of my field- thoughts on keto without exercising? Thanks guys!

    I lost about 100lbs before thinking about exercise. Losing the weight made exercise easier, not the other way around, as so many people seem to think.

  3. Gaiacreation

    I think many people think that way because for them it in fact does work that way. By exercising from the start I have not had any cravings or temptations to cheat, and while the lbs don't come off as fast the body fat is absolutely melting away. To each their own though, there is no one rule that works for everyone! Congrats on your loss btw!
