Keto Diet: Benefits And List Of Food Of Ketogenic Diet, Tarun, letztrend

You may wonder what’s actually a keto/ ketogenic diet? It’s a diet that contains high-fat, adequate-protein, and low carbohydrates. Such a diet helps to burn fats more than carbohydrates. It helps in treating epilepsy(disease) in children. It’s basically a method of weight loss, in which the body is molded in a state to perform ketosis.

 

The energy that’s needed by the body is mainly produced by the ketones which are made up of the liver. As the intake of carbohydrates is low, it forces the fats to be released from the fat cells. The fat released then enters the liver and get processed there. It simply means that you aren’t starving your body but just maintaining weight.

 

So what we actually do in this diet? We simply restrict the intake of carbohydrates and substitute them with fats and proteins. Such a diet is planned for a specific time period like say 30 days but is adapted by the body for a long time. One doesn’t need a specific diet plan for this, as the days pass you will yourself realize that some of the foods aren’t basically needed by the body, so eliminate those stuff. Maintain your carbohydrate intake from 20-40grams, but for the best results stay below 30. A perfect diet will contain 60-70% of the fats, 20-30% of proteins, and 5% or fewer carbohydrates.

 

Some of the healthy food products are as follows:

  • Avocado
  • Olive oil
  • Coconut Butter
  • Butter
  • Red Palm Oil
  • Chicken Fat
  • Mayonnaise
  • Peanut Butter
