The How and Why of Keto


The Ketogenic Diet in a Nutshell:

The human body can either use glucose (sugar) for fuel or it can run on ketones (fat).

Those who follow the Standard American Diet (SAD) fuel their bodies with glucose.

By adopting a well-formulated ketogenic diet and significantly limiting your carbohydrate intake for a prolonged period of time... your body will enter a state of nutritional ketosis in which it will burn fat for fuel instead of glucose and the pounds will start melting away.

Once you are “fat adapted” (in ketosis)… your body doesn’t care if you are getting energy from eating bacon, butter, cheese, or other healthy fats… or if it burns the fat you have stored all over your body.

By adding plenty of healthy fats to your diet… your hunger hormones will become naturally regulated you won’t be left feeling hungry or deprived like whenever you attempt a calorie-restricted diet.

It's All About Insulin

  • When insulin levels are high… your body stores fat.
  • Also, when insulin is elevated, your body is unable to tap into your stored body fat for fuel no matter how much you exercise.
  • When your insulin levels are low, your body will tap into your stored fat for fuel whether you work out or not.
  • So if you want to lose weight, keep your insulin levels as low as possible for as long as possible.
  • In order to keep insulin levels low, avoid eating carbohydrates.
