What is a ketogenic diet?
Do you know that the ketogenic diet is one of the most popular diets in America in recent years? It consists of food components that are very high in fat and very low in carbohydrates. It involves significantly reducing carbohydrate intake and increasing fat intake. Reducing carbohydrates can put your body in a metabolic state called ketosis, which is an elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood. When this happens, your body will be able to burn fat for energy. Fat is converted into ketones in the liver and this can help supply energy to the brain. This has multiple benefits and can help treat some conditions such as diabetes and epilepsy. The ketogenic diet has the ability to repair dysfunctional metabolic pathways that ultimately lead to restoration and healing. When you do intermittent keto fasting, the results are amazing.
