This is the diet that contains a high content of fat, enough protein and a low amount of carbohydrates. The trick behind this one is that the way your body will burn the fat by having the brain use ketons for its fuel instead of glucose.
The shift from the usual way that the human body works to a different way that is also acceptable but not usual may be difficult but the change can be made allowing the body to work on what is considered a state of ‘starvation’ to lose the weight that you have gained.
- Talk to Your Doctor
When you are considering something like this which is based on nutritional science assumptions and other facts, you will need to have the doctor approve this first because even though it does work, it is not for everyone.
- Heart and Kidney
These two organs are very important to the human body and if they are damaged, they will require a lot to get them back in shape which is why you will be required to not get into this diet if you have problems with any of the two. Physically, you should have organs that work like clockwork if you want to get into the Ketogenic diet.
- Begin with Low Carb Diet
This is the kind of diet that will ease you into the process easily. Once you can live on something like Atkins with ease, you will be on the right track to becoming what you need to be. Because it is heavily saturated with fats and protein, it will have the same effect that the full on Ketogenic diet will have but on a lower level.
- Keeping Track of Macronutrients
Whenever you are trying to determine how much of something you are eating, you will need to know the contents of the things that you ingest. That way, you will be sure that you have eaten this and not that.
Keeping track of the carbs is the first step to knowing whether or not you are doing it right.
The Last Mile
When you have gone fill Ketogenic, you will experience some kind of keto flu which will be your body responding to the regimen. These symptoms should disappear after a short time and if they don’t, it’s time to see the doctor.
