WHATS SO GREAT ABOUT THE KETO LIFESTYLE?
While on a ketogenic diet, your body will switch from burning sugar (glycogens) and producing insulin, to burning and using fat (ketones).
Keto Diet is a Low Carb, High Fat and Moderate Protein way of eating.
Fat about 75-80%, Carbs at or under 20 grams and protein (depending on your lean body mass) 80-100 grams.
You will get most of your daily calories from FAT. Beef (preferably Grass fed), Fish (avoid farm raised), Bacon, Eggs(free range), Cheese, Butter (also preferably from grass fed cows), Nuts (like Macadamia or Pili) and many other high fat foods.
Carbs, preferably from leafy green and Coniferous Vegtables. Salads, spinach, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, brussel sprouts, turnips, radish, and many others, preferably locally bought organic.
You get plenty of protein from the foods listed above, and it is not recommended that you use protein supplements, like the power drink mixes sold in stores.
The great advantage of the Ketogenic Lifestyle is:
decreased Appetite, Cognitive Improvement, Physical Performance, Reduced Blood Pressure, loss of Belly Fat, Improved Cholesterol Levels, and Loss of Weight. Some science studies are showing that ketosis can be beneficial in treating brain disorders, and possibly inhibiting cancer cell production. Many people have been able to reverse type 2 diabetes.
My personal experience with keto is: weight and fat loss, increased energy, improved brain function and clarity. My blood pressure is stable at under 119/83 to 110/69 after a week without my medication. my weight went from 236 on June 14th to 208 on August 12th. I feel great having no sugar or processed food. I never feel hungry, and can easily fast for a day or two.
More to come! Thanks for taking time to read my post, and please come back soon. TruckerRich the KetoTrucker.
