Even if you’ve tried many diets throughout your life, you’ve most likely never heard the term “ketosis”. It’s not a word the average person throws around in normal conversation.
Yet, in the world of dieting, ketosis is an extremely important, and well-known concept.
Ketosis is a condition in which levels of ketones (ketone bodies) in the blood are elevated, formed when glycogen stores in the liver have run out. Ketones are small carbon fragments that are the fuel created by the breakdown of fat stores. Thus, as the patient loses weight, progress and internal bodily balance can be measured by the amount of ketones found in the urine.
Because the body looks to burn carbohydrates as fuel before fats, the ketogenic diet removes most carbohydrates from the diet for a short time, forcing the body to burn stored fat for energy.
Ketogenic Diet Results
We’ve used the ketogenic diet successfully for years to help increase our clients’ fat burning potential, with results like:
- Noticeable weight loss right from the start;
- Increased fat burning potential;
- Improved eating habits;
- Improved overall health;
- Reduced hunger;
Aside from the obvious benefits of weight loss, the production of ketones can actually be beneficial to your health as well. A study conducted by the Epilepsy Society concluded that “Ketones are not dangerous. They are actually one of the more likely mechanisms of action of the diet; and with higher ketone levels often leading to improved seizure control.”
At Diet Doc, we’ve combined the fat burning power of the ketogenic diet with doctor supervision, making our diet plans not only incredibly successful, but safe as well.
