Lose Weight & Get Healthy With The Ketogenic Diet

This course is designed to teach you how to start a ketogenic diet immediately after you take the course.  The ketogenic diet isn’t complicated, it just takes discipline and consistency to get the desired results that you want.  Be patient at first because most people are heavy carbohydrate users and use sugar for fuel instead of ketones (fats). 

What is Nutritional Ketosis? Most people in society are in a state of sugar or glucose metabolism.  Nutritional ketosis is a physiological state when the body switches from burning sugar as its primary fuel to burning fatty acids as its primary fuel.  Ketones are produced by the liver from both dietary as well as body fat when blood sugar levels drop to a certain point. Unlike diabetic ketoacidosis which is a very rare medical condition that only takes place in individuals who cannot produce insulin, nutritional ketosis is a desireable physiological state because it helps the body to run more efficiently. What Are Ketones? Ketones are water soluble compounds formed from fatty acids that easily cross into the cellular mitochondria where they are metabolized for energy.  Ketones create 14 times more cellular energy than glucose.  In addition, the metabolism of ketones produces close to 50% less metabolic waste and oxidative stress. Think of a vehicle that gets more 14x more gas mileage, significantly better overall driving performance by all standards and produces 50% less exhaust and pollution.  We would all want that vehicle and that is what the state of nutritional ketosis does for our body! What is the Ketogenic Diet? The ketogenic diet is a specific nutrition plan that helps the body produce ketones and utilize these ketones as an energy source.  This nutrition plan is composed of a low level of carbohydrates, moderate protein levels and high in fats. The general breakdown is 60-80% fats, 10-30% protein and 5-10% carbohydrates.  The variance in the ranges depends upon how active the individual is and how carbohydrate and protein sensitive they are.
