Doctor Explains What Happens To The Human Body When It Goes Into Ketosis (ketogenic Diet)

From a young age we’re taught that eating three meals a day, plus snacks, is healthy and necessary for the human body to function normally, and this rhetoric still dominates North American food guides today. Mark Mattson, the Current Chief of the Laboratory of Neuroscience at the National Institute on Aging, once asked: Why is it that the normal diet is three meals a day plus snacks? . . . There are a lot of pressures to have that eating pattern, there’s a lot of money involved. The food industry – are they going to make money from skipping breakfast like I did today? No, they’re going to lose money. If people fast, the food industry loses money. What about the pharmaceutical industries? What if people do some intermittent fasting, exercise periodically and are very healthy? Is the pharmaceutical industry going to make any money on healthy people? The quote above comes from a TED talk Mattson gave on the benefits of fasting, a practice which forces the body to switch its fuel source from glucose to ketones. Scientists are observing a wide variety of health benefits from this transition, from starving cancer to improving cognition, and a ketosis diet is now being implemented Continue reading >>

    Darn, I spent all that time trying to format those columns but it bunched them all together. In any case, I added up grams of carbs, protein, and fat, then multiplied them by 4,4,9 to derive carb calories, protein calories, and fat calories...

    Especially if you're new to keto, it can take longer, and ketostix are notoriously unreliable (especially if well hydrated). Don't sweat the confirmation, just keep carbs low and you'll be in ketosis soon.

Can You Burn Fat Without Being In Ketosis?

When you're trying to lose weight, what you really want is to lose fat while preserving your lean muscle mass. Ketosis occurs when the body burns fat at a high rate. Lowering your carbohydrate intake gets you into the fat-burning zone, but you don't necessarily have to be in ketosis to achieve this goal. Video of the Day Ketosis means that your body is burning fat at high enough rates that you have a lot of ketone bodies, waste compounds produced during the burning of fat. These ketone bodies can also be burned for energy by your brain and most of your other body cells. To have ketone levels high enough to be detectable, you need to keep your carbohydrate intake lower than 50 grams per day, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. If you are in ketosis, which can be verified by using urine ketone strips, you can be 100 percent sure that your body is in fat-burning mode. During a study published in 2005 in the "Journal of the American Medical Association," researchers compared different diet plans, finding that people can lose fat without being in ketosis. If your carb intake is too high, your body prioritizes burning these carbs first. You can promo Continue reading >>

Ketosis And Banting.

Ketosis and banting for weight loss go hand in hand. Ketosis occurs when your body runs out of its energy source mainly Glucose. Sugar and Carbs – starchy foods like potatoes, bread and pasta all convert into glucose once consumed. If you eat more food than what your body needs it stores *it (energy/glucose) as fat. When your body is done digesting and has stored the energy, you instantly feel hungry again and need to supply more glucose. 3 Foods to Throw Out Ad Cut a bit of belly bloat each day, by avoiding these 3 foods nucific.com Learn more When you are banting, and your body is in a state of ketosis, it changes the way it uses energy. Your body still needs glucose as energy, but instead of you consuming so many carbs and sugar, your body uses your fat reserve. Ketosis breaks down fats your body has stored for energy and uses them to keep you fueled instead. During your first week, getting into a state of ketosis is your primary goal. Once you get there, you want to stay there for as long as possible. Why? Because the longer you are in ketosis, the more weight you will lose. While you are in ketosis, your body will need lots of water, and you need to stay hydrated at all time Continue reading >>
