Are you someone who is having trouble losing weight? Do you have excessive belly fat? Have you tried the Ketogenic diet but not getting the results you desire despite your best efforts. What happened to all those fat-burning and brain-boosting advantages?
A ketogenic diet is a popular option for people who want to reduce weight. Some people, however, may find that the keto diet does not assist them in losing weight. It’s most likely because people do not fully understand how the ketogenic diet works.
What is the Keto diet?
The keto diet is an eating plan whereby the body goes into ketosis, and starts burning it’s own fat as fuel. This is achieved by significantly reducing carbohydrate consumption.Why reduce carbohydrate consumption? Because in the body, carbohydrates breaks down into glucose and turn it into a source of energy. But when the body is unable to use all the converted glucose (cake, potato chips, rice, candy, sweet potato, bread, pasta, etc) it converts the unused glucose into fat and stores it. Therefore, the BELLY FAT that you are looking at and carrying around on a daily basis, is years and years of glucose stored as fat. Get the idea?So by reducing a person’s carbohydrate intake, the body will go into ketosis. During ketosis, the body becomes more efficient at burning fat and using it for energy instead of glucose.And that ladies and gentlemen is how you BURN FAT!!
