Ketogenic Diet: Learn a Revolutionary Way Of Improving Your Body and Your Health Eating Right by Sofia Lewis
The ketogenic diet was formulated by doctors and specialists in nutrition who found that eating a diet that was low in carbohydrates, high in fats and contains adequate protein helped to fight epilepsy that was not well controlled with medicine.
Many people mistakenly assume that a diet that is low in carbohydrates is naturally a ketogenic diet, but that is simply not the case. The protein and fats must also be kept in the right balance. How much of each is needed is dependent on the type of ketogenic diet, along with the person’s lifestyle.
When there is the right amount of fats, protein and carbohydrates, then the body goes into a state where the body does not have enough glucose to bum for energy, so it starts burning special molecules known as ketones.
The advantage of burning ketones for energy over the body just burning fat for energy is that the brain gets the energy to work properly, which it does not get when the body burns fat alone. Not only does the brain benefit, but other parts of the body benefit too. In fact, the heart actually works best when it is burning one type of ketone for its energy.
Additionally, ketones are found in the liver and burning them has been shown to improve liver health.
