Understand Keto Diet
Now you must be wondering how eating fat makes you burn fat? On a keto diet, you limit your carbohydrate and protein intake, resulting in a high-fat diet. Insufficient carbohydrates or protein means you don’t have much glucose so your body converts fat into ketones which provide you with energy. You thus burn fat to fuel your body.
You're constantly producing ketones. When you follow a ketogenic diet, however, those ketones take the place of glucose as your body's primary fuel source, and you enter ketosis.
The transition from glucose to ketones might take days or weeks, and maintaining it can be difficult. Even little amounts of carbohydrates or too much protein might make it difficult for your body to stay in ketosis. So the transition period, ie from when your Body goes from burning carbohydrates for fuel to burning fat for fuel it’s very important. Mama keto recommends that in this transition period you must try to eat extremely clean and highly ketogenic food which needs a strategy based planning.
Maintaining a high fat intake: You'll need to consume an 80–90% fat diet to go into and stay in ketosis. In other words, dietary fats will make up the majority of your diet.
Keeping an eye on your protein consumption: Excess protein can be converted to glucose, which prevents ketosis from occurring. A keto diet restricts the quantity of protein you consume.
Keeping carbs to a minimum: Keep your carb consumption between 20 and 50 grams per day to stay in ketosis. To put that in context, consider the following: The carbohydrate content of an apple is approximately 25 grams.
Checking to see whether you're in ketosis: You are not required to do so, but blood, urine, or breath tests can be used to determine the level of ketones produced by your body. To do this you can buy ketone testing pee sticks. They aren’t very accurate but you get a good idea.
Studies suggest that keto diets produce fantastic and speedy weight loss outcomes, at least in the short term. They can also aid in the treatment of diseases such as type 2 diabetes.
Insulin levels should be reduced. Your blood sugar levels rise when you eat foods high in carbohydrates and, to a lesser extent, protein. Insulin enters the picture to lower blood sugar levels by transferring glucose to your cells for energy or storage as glycogen. High insulin levels, on the other hand, which might occur when you consume too many carbohydrates, can inhibit fat loss. Insulin levels are kept low on a keto diet. Low insulin levels make it easier for your body to access fat stores for fuel.
