What is it?
This diet involves drastically reducing the carbohydrate intake and replacing them with fats and proteins. This reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called “ketosis”. Ketosis is a natural process the body initiates to help us survive when food intake is low. In this state, our body produces ketones, which are developed through the breakdown of fats in the liver. Because of this, your body learns to become more efficient at burning fat for energy.
What are the benefits?
On this diet, your entire body switches its fuel supply to a different metabolism and runs almost completely on fat. A positive side effect of this transition is that the insulin levels become very low and fat burning increases. This leads to weight loss, reduce cravings while balancing your insulin levels. The reduced swings in blood sugar often result in the experience of increased focus and improved concentration. Another benefit
is the increase of your physical endurance, by giving you constant access to all energy of your fat stores.
