What Is A Ketogenic Diet?
It's a diet that creates ketones in the body for fuel. It is a very low carb diet. It was created in 1920's for epilepic patients. The idea is to get the body to burning fat instead of sugar for fuel. Ketogenic diet helps with weight loss. It lowers insulin. Insulin tells the body to store fat. This diet can help you to think more clearly because the brain has a constant amount of fuel as it can use the fat in the body where as sugar burners always have to have a steady state of carbs to think clearly. The diet lowers the risk of type 2 diabetes. People that eat lots of healthier fats they have a healthier heart than those that live off of sugar and carbs. It may even lower the risk of cancer as cancer uses sugar as fuel.
Types of foods on a ketogenic diet - olive oil, coconut oil, ghee, butter, chicken fat, avocados, flaxseed, wild meat, bone broth, non-starchy vegetables.
Foods to avoid while on a ketogenic diet - added sugars, grains, most processed foods, alcohol.
