Keto diet and Weight loss

It can seem very overwhelming at first, when you’re on your own trying to figure out exactly what to eat, how often, how much, and how to even cook such meals – especially with all the conflicting information available in books and on the internet about Keto diet and Weight loss.

What is “KETO diet” ?

Believe it or not, the keto diet is more than 100 years old. It was originally used to treat diabetes before insulin was discovered. It was also used to help manage seizures in children suffering from epilepsy. The diet follows a very low-carbohydrate (carb), high-fat eating plan.

“Keto” is short for ketogenic. It is named after the ketone, a type of fuel produced when your body does not have enough sugar (glucose) from eating carbs. Without these carbs, your body transitions to a state called ketosis. In ketosis, instead of burning carbs from energy, your liver will produce ketones from your stored fat to move your muscles, support your organs and help you think. Unfortunately, getting your liver to make ketones is hard. Your body won’t convert fat to ketones until you’ve used up the stored glucose you normally use for energy. Glucose is your body’s favorite form of energy and it’s stored to help you live each day. In order to change the system, you need to drop your carb intake to fewer than 20 to 50 grams a day. To put that into perspective, the recommended daily amount of carbs is %65-%45. For someone eating a 2,000 calorie-a-day diet, that’s somewhere between 225 to 325 grams a day!

Why Use a Meal Plan?

Personalised meal plan is a great option for burning fat that takes all the hassle and stress out of planning your meals, while allowing you to eat whatever you want. That’s right – we’re talking about guilt free meals for months.

Weight-loss is not and never will be a fast process. It is hard. Adopting an active lifestyle with a balance of all foods is recommended to live a happy and long life. A well-known food journalist and author, Michael Pollan, may have said it best: “Eat real food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”.
