You’ve probably heard
about the keto diet. It’s the newest hype. All the papers are writing about it
and the interest online is just exploding. So what is the keto diet? What does keto even mean
and how is it done? In this course you will learn
all you need to know. First of all let’s get this
out of the way. What does the word “keto\” mean? Basically the body can run
on two different fuels. One is sugar from carbohydrates
in the food we eat and that’s what most people today
primarily use. Let’s say if they’re eating bread,
pasta, rice, potatoes etc.
The other fuel is fat. The keto diet is a very low-carb diet. So low in carbs that the body has to switch
to mainly using fat for fuel. For example from real foods like eggs,
meat, avocados, butter, olive oil, nuts, etc. Even the brain can become fueled by fat. When the body is out of sugar, fat is converted in the liver
into energy molecules called ketones that fuel the brain. And the diet that results in this
is called ketogenic, meaning it produces ketones. And that’s why the diet
is called the keto diet.
Being fueled mostly by fat,
a state called \”ketosis\”, has many benefits including that you become
a fat-burning machine. It’s perfect for weight loss without hunger
burning fat 24/7 even when you’re sleeping. Because it gives you tons of energy,
you’ll basically never run out. Why the keto diet has become
super popular in the last few years is actually not entirely new. The foundation of keto is something old
that you’ve heard about a million times. It’s a strict low-carb diet,
it’s a gluten-free diet, it’s similar to the paleo diet and it’s very close to the old
and well-known Atkins diet.
The basic idea is super simple
and based on real foods. You simply avoid most carbohydrates
like sugar, processed junk food, bread, pasta, rice etc. And instead you eat meat, fish, eggs,
vegetables and natural fats like butter. What is different with keto? Is that it’s a supercharged
low-carb diet where you can make sure
you get the maximum benefits. We’ll get to the details later. So keto is a supercharged version
of an old idea. Similar diets have been tried for decades,
even centuries. These similar diets keep returning
more popular than ever because they work.
And this could have
an evolutionary explanation as our ancestors did not eat refined
carbohydrates or sugar like we do today, so our bodies may not be adapted
to those foods. Modern science proves that it works. On a keto diet most people can lose
excess weight without hunger and a number of health issues
tend to improve. Most importantly a keto diet
is not just used as a temporary fix. Many people enjoy it
as a long term lifestyle. Not just for weight loss,
but for long-term health and well-being and staying fit year-round.
Many people feel energized,
full of mental clarity and have stable blood sugar levels. Most of the hunger disappears,
cravings for sweets foods are reduced, so there’s no need
to snack all the time anymore. People save time by being happy
with fewer meals. They eat delicious food
whenever they’re hungry and there’s not even any need
to count calories. Most people feel so satiated on keto
that they can eat when they’re hungry and still eat less and lose excess weight. They don’t even have to exercise.
Now of course some exercise
is good for you for health and feeling your best, but it’s not required for weight loss
and certainly not on keto. In this course you will learn exactly
how to do keto, what to eat, what not to eat
and when to eat. You will learn the common problems that
people experience when starting keto, the keto flu and how to avoid it. You will learn how to know
if you’re in ketosis and the simple tricks to get there. You will learn about weight loss on keto,
what to expect, how to speed it up and how to break a weight loss plateau
