By now you’ve probably heard of this new thing called ketosis. If you haven’t, it is the state your body goes into when deprived of carbohydrates. When this happens, your body needs to find another fuel source and transitions into a metabolic state called ketosis. In ketosis, your body derives energy from ketones in the blood, as opposed to blood glucose when in a state of glycolysis. When in this state, your body is metabolizing fat at a high rate and converting those fatty acids into ketones.
Benefits of a keto diet
A keto diet is one specifically created to help your body enter ketosis. Low-carb eating plans that stress protien as fuel for your body, such as Atkins and Paleo diets, can help move your body toward ketosis.
- Can help reduce appetite
- Improves energy
- May increase fat loss, especially in the tummy
- Supports blood sugar levels already within normal ranges
- Trains your body to burn fat, rather than sugar
- Optimal mental clarity
How do I get in ketosis and stay there?
When your body is deprived of carbohydrates for 3-4 days, it will begin to search for new fuel sources and goes into a state of ketosis. You can do this by either limiting your carbohydrate intake, reducing how much foods like bread, cakes, cookies, sodas, and fruit you eat, or by fasting. After a few days, your body will start creating ketones. Once your blood ketones reach a certain level, your body enters ketosis.
