New Diet Trend: The Ketogenic Diet
keto diet for type 2 diabetes

You’ve probably heard of it, many movie stars have adopted it, but you don’t know what it is!

The ketogenic diet, long for keto diet, is based on a diet very low in carbohydrates. Vital keto avis is one of the products adapted to the ketogenic diet. The idea is to help us burn fat more effectively. This diet is not for everyone and it is important to ask your doctor for his green signal before starting it.

This diet aims at significantly reducing the consumption of carbohydrates in favor of lipids to cause a state of ketosis. Ketosis is a specific condition of the body. It is reached when the body begins to produce the so-called ketone molecules in the liver. These molecules, when there are enough of them, can serve as a source of energy for the body. In doing so, they replace carbohydrates as an energy source and cause significant weight loss. There are two easy ways to tell if you have attained a state of ketosis: The urine has a specific odor and there is a metallic taste in your mouth.

These two simple ways of knowing if you are in ketosis are that ketones are released through urine and breathing.

Properly practicing the keto diet means eliminating fat while respecting a good proportion of proteins, fats and carbohydrates.

Among the benefits of the keto diet is the fact that it naturally causes us to lose our appetite. On the other hand, even if it does not increase the volume of the muscles, it allows us to conserve muscle mass to the maximum. This is what also preserves the relief of the body.

Basic Principle

As a rule, the principle of the keto diet is based on the consumption of 40 to 45% of calories from protein, 50% of fat and 10% of carbohydrates. For some authors and nutritionists, this 50% represents a large proportion which is not without certain risks (hence the need to speak to your doctor). But if you carefully observe his condition and follow an established diet, this risk is minimized. This is especially true if one follows the keto diet temporarily.
