What is a keto diet?
A ketogenic diet means that you have to consume
- Very few carbohydrates
- A good amount of protein
- A very high amount of fats (Good/healthy fat)
Basically, a ketogenic diet consists of almost 70% of healthy fat, 25% of protein and only 5% of carbs.
But it is not a strict ratio, it varies person to person cause we all have different carbohydrate tolerance and also insulin resistance level.
Why minimize the number of carbohydrates?
When we consuming carbohydrate foods. Carbs break into glucose, and glucose starts increasing in our body.
Glucose helps our body to produce more energy, by which we work all day and doing activities
Now, when we regularly eat carbohydrates, it turns into glucose and glucose however is an energy source but also leads to obesity.
The main purpose of minimizing carbs is,Allowing less amount of glucose in our body, so that our body burns fat from stored glucose, that’s when the fat will be decreased.
Here, when we regularly follow this kind of diet, the amount of carb in our body starts decreasing, which leads to the condition of ketosis.
What is ketosis?
Ketosis is the state of our body where our body burns fat into fuel that’s when keto-state activated.
Fat is stored energy when we stop taking carbs (glucose), the already stored fat convert into glucose, which you burn while exercising and this will result in weight loss, fat loss.
why we needed protein?
If you want lean mass then protein should be needed there because if you do not supply protein to your body, stored protein also breaks down into fuel and result in you will get too slim.
Why fat needed in extreme level?
If your body is high on fat then your body will not be in a state of calorie deficit.
But if your is low on fat your body will be in a calorie deficit because your carb intake is just 5%.
Fat has more calories (approx 2x) than protein and carbohydrate
That’s why fat and protein needed to be in high quantity.
