Keto diet burns fat and aids weight loss

Originality the ketogenic diet was used only to treat epilepsy. Now, thanks to advocacy from celebrities who've had surprisingly high weight loss with it, the ketogenic or keto diet is in vogue. The  keto diet a high fat, high-protein, low carb diet that burns fat. This puts your body in ketosis which aids weight loss. 

Some experts question whether ketosis is dangerous for the body. But it may actually be healthy. What's ketosis? It just means the body no longer gets many carbs and so doesn't depend on carbohydrates for energy. Needing fuel to burn, the body seeks out deep tissue fat that is buried in cells, around internal organs and in the belly, thighs, buttocks, hips and under the arms. 

With 2/3 of the U.S. overweight and obesity at 35-percent, it's time a lot of us start a weight loss program.  How is weight loss achieved eating a high-fat, high-protein, low-carb diet? Eating keto  Well, forces the body to seek out stored fat for fuel.. This burns fat stuck in fat-prone places. 

Further, a high-protein diet curbs hunger, fills you up faster and keeps you full longer. Carbohydrates burn off very rapidly and you feel hungry more quickly. When I first began dieting in 2013, feeling constantly hungry was the worst part of diet. Avoiding diets that provide too little nutrients--the fad and crash diets--was part of how I lost 100 pounds.  

Also, and perhaps most important, interesting and ironic part of the keto diet is that good high-fat diets burn fat in the body. Eating good fats--MUFAS
(monounsaturated fatty acids), MCAs (medium chain triglycerides) and essential omega oils, also called CLA, GLA and ALA (conjugated linolenic acids, gamma linolenic acids and alpha linolenic acids)--all aid in breaking down bad fat stored from over consumption of carbohydrates, sugar, saturated fats and transfats. 

The ketogenic high-fat, high-protein, low-carb diet reduces lipogenesis (manufacture of fat) and increases lipolysis (fat burning). It also increases gluconeogenesis (manufacture of blood sugar which has a thermic aka burning effect on proteins). The ketogenic diet isn't just a fad celebrity diet.  It's actually one of the most researched meals plans for safe and rapid weight loss. 

Eating keto aids in prevention and treatment of MS, seizures, Alzheimer's,cardiovascular disease and even some types of cancers. Doctors recommend that because the ketogenic diet is so specific, it achieves best weight loss under medical supervision. That may be even more true for obese, severely obese and morbidly obese patients. It's a whole new way of eating, that's for sure. Some ketogenic high-protein, high-fat, low-carb foods are: fish, nuts, Greek yogurt, avocados, coconut oil, almonds, nuts, seeds, flax seed, chia seeds and zucchini. High-fat, fiber-rich foods, like nuts and seeds, also help flush fat.
