The keto diet has certainly gained popularity in recent years. This may be partly due to mainstream media. But it is likely also because it really works and the results are amazing! In fact, not only has it been proven to work for extreme weight loss, but it is also starting to be proven to prevent diabetes. And even if you are currently diabetic there are a few stories coming out about people who switched when they are diabetic. Needless to say, their results have been life-changing. Every month people are making this switch and it is extremely tough to find any bad reviews about it. So how does it work? Well that’s an interesting question that involves some extra explanation. So, in order to walk around, think etc. your body needs energy. The typical energy your body relies on is the energy it gets from carbohydrates. Or if you have sugars in your system it could rely on that as well. Well we all know what happens when you consume sugar. It turns into bubbling fat. Either way it is not a good idea to have that sitting in your stomach or wherever it may go. As for the carbs, those have to be cut down as well, here is why. The goal is for your body to rely on the energy it gets from fat heavy foods as opposed to carbs. Because when your body relies on fats for energy, this puts you in the state of “ketosis”. This is obviously where the name of the diet comes from. By entering the state of ketosis, you will burn fat much faster because it is being used as energy. Be aware that once you first enter this state you might suffer from “Keto Flu”. Typically, you will know if you are suffering from the keto flu if “you are constantly feeling light-headed, feel fatigued easily, and feel extremely hungry. This is natural and what happens what you make such a drastic lifestyle change. Don’t worry this will only last a few days. This is also why it is necessary to first cut out sugars in your life if you still consume any of those foods daily. You can worry about going on the keto diet once you feel you have successfully done that. Once you have done the keto diet you won’t even miss the sugar, in fact it might seem like it doesn’t even exist!
