We have all seen various diets and trends come and go over the years. For instance, we have the infamous Atkin’s diet, the Paleo diet, and how the entire concept of detoxing and juicing got really popular and was even endorsed by a number of celebrities. Currently, there is a new diet that has been making the rounds, and that is the keto diet.
The keto diet is not relatively new because it was initially prescribed to people suffering from diabetes and a few other health conditions. However, it slowly made its way into mainstream society, and a lot of people are now trying the keto diet for weight loss. Now, if you happen to unfamiliar with what exactly keto diets are about, you can keep on reading below.
Now, our body has a natural system that burns off stored carbohydrates/sugars in our body in order to create energy so that we are able to perform our daily activities. Now, the Keto diet focuses on naturally teaching our bodies to stop metabolizing sugars/carbs and to instead focus on burning fat instead. This way one is easily able to lose any excess fat in this body.
So, in order for our body to start burning fat instead of carbohydrates, those who start the keto diet have to try to completely remove any form of carb intake, and should instead have a high protein, and an even higher fat intake instead. This way the body has no means of burning off any carbohydrates and is instead forced to burn the stored fat in our body instead. This diet has been found to have very promising results, but it is one that involves a lot of strictness, and you cannot afford to have cheat days with this kind of diet.
