WHAT IS KETO DIET

The Keto Diet is one of the most effective diet to turn your body into a fat burning machine

This diet is known as very low carbs – high fat and moderate protein intake.

–  75% Fat – 20% protein and 5% carbs. –

Typically on a normal, higher carbohydrate diet, the body will use glucose (from the carbs) as the main form of energy.

By lowering the intake of carbs, the body is induced into a state known as ketosis.

During this state, we produce ketones, which are produced from the breakdown of fats in the liver. Our bodies are incredibly adaptive to what you put into it – when you overload it with fats and take away carbohydrates, it will begin to burn ketones as the primary energy source.

Optimal ketone levels offer many health, weight loss, physical and mental performance benefits.

FEW RULES

It is necessary to restrict your carbs intake to 35grs a day, also protein should be moderate (0.6-0.8grs per pound of lean body mass) if you eat too much protein it will lower the level ketosis.

Fat is the primary source of energy so make sure you eat enough of it – you won’t lose weight by starvation.

Drink plenty of water, start exercising and salt your dishes with the pink salt to help with water retention and help replenish the electrolytes.
