Hey everyone,

Welcome to this article on Keto diets. I
hope you enjoy it and find something of
use to take from it.

Keto is everywhere; it’s the new buzzword,
the new favorite among those looking to
shed
pounds, and the new hate victim of the
food-pyramid-spouting-eat-your-whole
grains
mainstream medical industry.

The keto diet, while it is not the magic
cure-all for every single
disease on the planet, does a pretty dang
good job at being the potential causer of
healing many
horrible conditions. So let’s cut through
the science, separate fact from fiction,
and look at the
benefits of the keto diet.

Benefit #1: Weight Loss

Okay, so this one isn’t so astounding, but
it is one of the most common reasons
people embark on
the keto diet. So why is weight loss
usually so easy on the ketogenic diet
instead of other regular
diets? For all of the following reasons:

 The keto diet is composed of
approximately 75% fat, 20 % protein, and
5% or less
carbohydrates. The high fat content and
lack of sugar means diminished cravings,
lack of
blood sugar swings and binges, and
increased satiation.

Increased satiation=eating less.

Many people also have food sensitivities
to grains, even gluten-free ones, so
eliminating
them may lead to an increased ability to
absorb minerals like magnesium and
potassium,
which in turn means your body is more
nourished and you have fewer cravings

 

• Ketones. When your blood sugar is
running low, your body turns to its
glycogen stores
for energy.

Typically glycogen stores house about 2000
calories of “backup” energy for
when you run out of glucose. Like the
intelligent machine it is, your body
depletes the
glycogen stores and then turns to your own
body fat for fuel.

 

IMPORTANT: The ketogenic diet is not a
free-for-all eat however much cheese or
super lowcarb fat bomb treats you want
diet. If you are eating way more calories
than you need, you will
not lose weight.

So focus on keeping your diet around fatty
cuts of grass-fed meat, butter, eggs,
avocados, lots of green veggies and
cruciferous, and be modest with the keto
desserts, dairy, and
sweets.

Benefit #2: Brain Function

A poorly functioning brain, as you may
have already experienced, leads to
lessened work
productivity, which in turn means an
unhappy boss, lack of job satisfaction,
sugar cravings for
energy, and depression.

It’s a horrible domino effect. The
original ketogenic diet was formulated
by Dr. Russell Wilder in the early 20th
century to treat epilepsy. The success
rate was
phenomenal and it is still used today to
treat epilepsy and other brain disorders.
Research also
indicates that ketones are more efficient
brain fuel than glucose.

Benefit #3: Potential Cancer Benefits

One study showed implementing the
ketogenic diet led to a dramatically
increased survival time
and slower tumor growth. (Source:

Conclusion

If you’re reading this article now,
chances are you are in some sort of pain,
whether physical
and/or mental (being overweight,
struggling with autoimmune disorders,
thyroid disease, fatigue,
brain fog) and want to change. Use this
information, don’t just skim through it
and store it in the
back of your brain and say “that’s nice
for some people”, motivate yourself to
change.

I think that’s about it once again I
really hope you enjoyed this article.
Hope to see you back here soon until then
