You’ve probably heardabout the keto diet. It’s the newest hype. All the papers are writing about itand the interest online is just exploding. So what is the keto diet? What does keto even meanand how is it done? In this course you will learnall you need to know.
First of all let’s get thisout of the way. What does the word “keto” mean? Basically the body can runon two different fuels. One is sugar from carbohydratesin the food we eat and that’s what most people todayprimarily use. Let’s say if they’re eating bread,pasta, rice, potatoes etc. The other fuel is fat.
The keto diet is a very low-carb diet. So low in carbs that the body has to switchto mainly using fat for fuel. For example from real foods like eggs,meat, avocados, butter, olive oil, nuts, etc. Even the brain can become fueled by fat. When the body is out of sugar, fat is converted in the liverinto energy molecules called ketones that fuel the brain. And the diet that results in thisis called ketogenic, meaning it produces ketones. And that’s why the dietis called the keto diet.
Being fueled mostly by fat,a state called “ketosis”, has many benefits including that you becomea fat-burning machine. It’s perfect for weight loss without hungerburning fat 24/7 even when you’re sleeping. Because it gives you tons of energy,you’ll basically never run out. Why the keto diet has becomesuper popular in the last few years is actually not entirely new. The foundation of keto is something oldthat you’ve heard about a million times.
It’s a strict low-carb diet,it’s a gluten-free diet, it’s similar to the paleo diet and it’s very close to the oldand well-known Atkins diet. The basic idea is super simpleand based on real foods. You simply avoid most carbohydrateslike sugar, processed junk food, bread, pasta, rice etc. And instead you eat meat, fish, eggs,vegetables and natural fats like butter.
What is different with keto? Is that it’s a superchargedlow-carb diet where you can make sureyou get the maximum benefits. We’ll get to the details later. So keto is a supercharged versionof an old idea. Similar diets have been tried for decades,even centuries.
These similar diets keep returningmore popular than ever because they work. And this could havean evolutionary explanation as our ancestors did not eat refinedcarbohydrates or sugar like we do today, so our bodies may not be adaptedto those foods. Modern science proves that it works. On a keto diet most people can loseexcess weight without hunger and a number of health issuestend to improve.
Most importantly a keto dietis not just used as a temporary fix. Many people enjoy itas a long term lifestyle. Not just for weight loss,but for long-term health and well-being and staying fit year-round. Many people feel energized,full of mental clarity and have stable blood sugar levels. Most of the hunger disappears,cravings for sweets foods are reduced, so there’s no needto snack all the time anymore. People save time by being happywith fewer meals. They eat delicious foodwhenever they’re hungry and there’s not even any needto count calories.
Most people feel so satiated on ketothat they can eat when they’re hungry and still eat less and lose excess weight. They don’t even have to exercise. Now of course some exerciseis good for you for health and feeling your best, but it’s not required for weight lossand certainly not on keto.
