Ketogenic diet plans, also known as Ketosis diet plans, are diets that contain very tiny amounts of carbohydrates. As you may know, carbohydrate foods are the body’s key source of energy. When your body processes carbs their energy is released and is essential for your body to work properly. If you lessen your carb consumption too much, you can die, given that there is no energy to fuel your body’s normal functions. Luckily, the body is smart enough to be aware of what to do. If your body feels vulnerable by an insufficient ingestion of carbohydrates, it immediately begins looking for energy by burning stored fat. Hopefully, you are beginning to see what were getting at. It really makes sense that any diet plan that causes your body to discover and consume excess fat for energy will allow you to lose weight. There are individuals that fear that a ketogenic diet plan might be dangerous. However, the problem could possibly be that these people have confused the words “ketoacidosis” with “ketogenic”. The truth is, only diabetic patients need worry about ketoacidosis, a life-threatening situation where their glucose levels can vary wildly. Obviously, we do not like to mix up these 2 terms. Ketosis is totally natural and possesses some excellent health advantages, not only for losing weight fast but also for avoiding health issues.

Ketosis, as well as its effects on weight reduction, have been under study for years. In virtually every case, people active in the studies who were fed a ketogenic diet plan described that their appetites seemed to decreased. It is because ketogenic diet plans are generally quite heavy on healthy proteins. Interestingly, do you know what kind of food turns out to be a big element in making us really feel full — that’s right, protein. Individuals who do not have to actively work to manage calories are the ones on reduced carbohydrate diet plans, whereas people on low-fat diet plans have to be concerned with calorie counting.

Why the Ketogenic Diet is best for long-term Health and Weight Loss

The key is remaining in Ketosis and this is where the Ultra Lite program is so effective because it is a structured program that provides you with all of the tools that you require to maintain a state of Ketosis, plus it provides the support of trained Ultra Lite practitioners or nutritional coaches.

Because a ketogenic diet is one that encourages the body to use stored fat deposits to produce ketones as a fuel source it provides some amazing health benefits as well as weight Loss. Ketones by nature are not an efficient energy source and therefore the body is able to look at stored energy sources such as fat reserves as an alternative source.

The normal Western diet is so focused on sugar in all its forms as its primary energy source and this being a very efficient means that ends up stored as fat because it’s not all utilised and ends up as fat deposits mainly due to our sedentary lifestyle.

When one is in Ketosis the body receives an extra energy boost because the brain thrives on ketones as its main energy source. This can be compared to a 24hour fast those who participate in this concept will recognise the clarity of thought and often the energy boost, the downside being feeling awfully hungry. But when you are in a state ketosis you have all the benefits of fasting the mental clarity and the energy boost without the hunger.

On a ketogenic diet dietary carbohydrates are kept very low protein is moderate and fat consumption is increased, gently encouraging our body to remember how to rely fat as a primary fuel and to produce ketones from stored body fat. Even if you are very lean will still have lots more stored body fat use on ketones production that you have stored carbohydrate fuels

The health benefits are amazing when you reduce the amount of carbohydrate and increase the fat and protein in your diet, it has the effect of switching your body into fat burning mode.

Instead of using the easily exhausted sugar from carbohydrates for fuel, your body burns stored fat for energy, and it’s this fat burning process which greatly improves health and well-being.

In fact, a ketogenic, high fat, moderate protein diet can alleviate many serious health issues.

Some medical researchers and physicians are using ketogenic, carb restricted diets to:

And many people, including myself, have discovered that a ketogenic diet is a very effective tool for regaining health, losing excess weight and building a muscular, healthy body.
