The Ketogenic Diet is a high fat, moderate protein, and very low carb diet. This low carb diet is similar to Atkins, however, the diet is much more restrictive than the Atkins Diet. Due to the restrictive nature of the Ketogenic Diet, most people implement the Modified Atkins Diet, which is more flexible with dietary choices.
In both, the Ketogenic Diet and Modified Atkins Diet, Ketosis occurs, which is a state triggered by low carbohydrate intake, where the body switches from using glucose for fuel to ketones. Ketones have their origin from fat; once the body begins to break down fat reserves and utilize them for energy, we lose weight.
The Ketogenic Diet will force your body to “burn fat”, but as you will find in this eBook, not all fats are the same. You will discover which fats are good and should be a part of your daily staple, as well as which fats to avoid.
If you’re convinced the Ketogenic Diet is worth a try, the first step is to cut down the carbs in your diet. Limiting your exposure to carbohydrates carries with it a number of benefits: weight loss, avoidance of developing insulin resistance and diabetes, improvement of blood lipids, and decreased risk of cardiovascular disease.
Included in this eBook is a list of Keto Recipes, Ketogenic Diet Snacks, and the 25 vegetables with the lowest amount of carbs.
