Low Carb Ketogenic Diet Basics

Low Carb Ketogenic Diet Basics


Hi everyone, I’m Stacey from beautyandthefoodie.com, where I create low carb,
keto, gluten free recipes.
and here’s a short video I prepared for you
that explains the basics of the low carb keto
diet and why it works so much better for me and many
other people than the low fat diet and many other diets.
Many studies have shown low carb lifestyles
result in more loss as compared to the standard
low fat diet plan.
The strictest low carb plans, like the ketogenic
diet limit carb intake to non starchy vegetables,
some dairy and nuts.
Starch and sugar carbohydrates are substituted
with non starchy vegetables.
healthy fats, and a moderate protein intake.
While sugar, pastries, pasta, breads, cereal,
beans or any other starches are not allowed
and instead you eat non starchy vegetables,
butter, fatty fish, oils and some dairy.
You also get to enjoy eggs, steak, bacon,
chicken, seafood, and other proteins.
The ketogenic diet triggers a metabolic process
called ketosis where the body no longer gets
its energy from the glucose that dietary carbs
produce inside the body but instead begins
to burn fat for energy, which is a very efficient
way to burn fat stores and lose weight.
People that have gone on a low carb diet typically
lose quite a bit of weight in the first 2 weeks.
As the water that’s tied to glycogen
comes off the body.
Starch and sugar carbs are insulin triggers
they cause blood sugar spikes that lead to weight gain.
While on a low carb diet these insulin triggers
are eliminated, so the body can burn fat instead of storing it.
Protein helps keep you full and satisfied
so you naturally eat less, but also helps
to increase lean muscle mass that promotes
fat burning.
A low carb diet naturally regulates the appetite
because all of those insulin trigger foods
that wreak havoc in the bloodstream that cause
erratic hunger and out of control cravings
are eliminated.
Researchers from Saint Louis in Japan also
found that the hunger-regulating hormone leptin
is positively affected by the low carb diet’s
ability to reduce triglyceride levels in the body
which allows leptin in the body to work
much more effectively in regulating the appetite.
When people embark on a low carb diet their appetite significantly drops and they
naturally feel more satisfied with less food
resulting in an additional weight loss boost
as they naturally eat less calories and without
suffering and starvation.
And best of all you get to eat real food: meats,
fish, chicken, bacon, eggs, healthy fats vegetables,
and there are hundreds of terrific low carb
recipes to fill your menus.
Low carb diets are not fads, but lifestyles
that have helped thousands of people
Reverse obesity and improve their health.
It may just do the same for you.
