The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carb diet that aims to alter the metabolism so that more fats instead of carbs are being burnt. What the ketogenic diet aims to do is to change the main fuel source of the body from carbohydrates to ketones; ketones are the products of fat metabolism.
By switching to a ketogenic diet, the body naturally transitions into a state of ketosis, what this means is that most of the body’s energy is being derived from ketones as opposed to coming from glucose, a.k.a sugar.
When it comes to ketosis weight loss results, those on this diet have generally been thrilled with them. There have been reported by some stating that in a little over a week, the results experienced have been phenomenal. In only a week following the ketogenic diet, twelve pounds were lost and even without measuring; the results are obvious in the fact that there was at least one pants size dropped.
Another incredible fact about ketosis weight loss results is that there was a lot more energy experienced by those on the diet. Although it may sound odd, there have been reports that on this high-fat diet, there is the feeling as if you are on the top of the world; there is also a huge improvement on focus.
Even students who took on the ketogenic diet and reportedly had had a difficult time in the past with maintaining focus at school found themselves taking online courses, reading lectures, etc. and understanding the information the first time around, meaning that they did not need to re-read it as they used to. For many, this was a first. They reported that not only their body, but also their brain were adapting quite well to the ketogenic diet. Where there used to be a feeling of confusion in the brain, there was a feeling of ease that was expressed as being, as crazy as it may sound “a breath of fresh air.”
What was reportedly the most difficult part of the ketogenic diet was referred to as the “keto flu.” Although it can make an individual feel miserable, it only lasts a couple of days and most people are able to push through. The easiest part of the ketogenic diet was reported as being able to enjoy the food and not experience boredom by having to adhere to a simple salad and veggies that are typical components of other diets.
So in conclusion, not only has the ketogenic diet been proven to be successful for losing weight, but many have reported other side effects of the ketogenic diet, such as clearer skin, clearer thinking, and no more sugar crashes. For those considering taking on the ketogenic diet, the one things to keep in mind is never to give up. There will be challenges, however, if they are pushed through the results will not be disappointing. It may seem difficult at first, but the body will adapt and feel better after.
