Ketogenic Diet: Top 50 Dinner Recipes You Must Try
The ketogenic diet is a type of diet regimen that focuses on giving your body a high amount of proteins and fats, with low levels of carbohydrate. This is a diet that is used mainly to help in controlling refractory epilepsy in children. The idea behind the diet is simple – it forces your body to burn the fats rather than the carbohydrates to give you the energy you need to get through your day.
When your body converts carbohydrates into glucose, the blood transports it to all organs – what happens in a ketogenic diet is slightly different; with the low levels of carbs, the liver will then take fat and turn those into fatty acids and ketone bodies, which replace glucose as an energy source to keep you going! This means that there are more ketones in your blood, which is a status of being called ketosis. Ketosis brings about a reduction in how often a person gets epileptic seizures.
Now while the actual Ketogenic Diet was initially created to help people with epilepsy and help them get their affliction under control, over the years, the Diet has also become popular as a weight loss or weight management program. Given the fact that you aren’t taking any carbs, your fat content is burnt to give you energy – stored fat is stored energy, after all! The diet is rich in proteins as well, though clinical trials in the past few decades have shown that there are still some side effects the diet can have. Still, those can be worked around easily, so long as you have the gumption to stick to the diet and follow a strict routine every day.
What you are going to be doing is putting your body through Ketosis so that you can burn off all those excess calories and lose weight. Instead of glucose, you will use another energy source – ketones. The reason most people are troubled by the idea of a diet like this is because of how unconventional it is; as a medicinal treatment, it may make sense, but as a weight loss program, it can come across as a diet fad to someone who is inexperienced or unsure. In that case, consult your nutritionist or dietician – the diet is a well-known, well-approved ideology that’s been in place for a long time and has proved to be a sure-fire way of not only controlling epilepsy, but also burning fats!
