How to lose fat with a low-carb, low-fat diet
I want to share a secret to losing fat.
I want you to know that.
That secret is…nothing.
You have to eat right, exercise and do your best to stay in control of your calories and your weight.
There’s a secret.
It’s called a ketogenic diet.
It sounds complicated, but you can start eating like this today.
In fact, if you’ve followed the Atkins diet, you’re already on track.
Here’s how to do it.
The Basics What is a keto diet?
A ketogenic is an eating plan that includes moderate-to-low-carbohydrate, low fat foods, mostly vegetables and fruits.
In contrast to a low carb diet, which includes all grains and carbs, a ketone-based diet is designed to replace those foods with ketones, which are a fat-burning form of ketone bodies found in fat and in proteins.
It works by reducing the need for refined carbohydrates.
You don’t need to eat sugar, salt or artificial sweeteners, nor do you need to avoid whole grains, fruits, legumes, dairy, coffee and tea.
That said, a lot of people eat keto without realizing it.
Some have low energy levels, don’t want to exercise and aren’t eating enough.
But the more you follow a ketosis-based eating plan, the healthier you’ll feel.
If you follow the plan, your body will switch to a more ketogenic state and your metabolism will begin to change.
Ketones are a form of fat called ketones.
There are two types of ketones: ketones found in meat, fish, dairy products and plants.
The first type, ketones from fat, is called acetoacetate.
When you eat these fats, they get converted to acetoacyl-CoA, which is used to make fatty acids.
The second type, from ketones produced from glucose, is known as ketones of fatty acids (KFAs).
Ketones of these fatty acids can be found in a variety of foods, including dairy products, nuts, olive oil, nuts and seeds, and in fish.
The Ketogenic Diet and the Body’s Keto Ketones make up one of the major components of a ketones-based ketosis diet.
These fatty acids are essential for energy production.
Ketone bodies are the fuel that fuels your body, providing fuel to your mitochondria, the small mitochondria that power your cells.
In other words, your mitochondrion helps fuel your body’s energy production and metabolism.
They also help you stay lean and healthy.
Keto ketones are also important for muscle health.
Ketosis is when your body switches from using ketones as fuel to making fatty acids from ketone, acetoacetic acid (aka ketone).
Ketosis means “burn energy.”
That’s what the body does when it burns fat.
It burns energy, and fatty acids become a fuel.
In addition, fatty acids make up about 90% of the fuel for the body’s cell membranes.
They are a major component of cell membranes, especially the membranes that carry nutrients and oxygen.
Without fatty acids, your cells would shut down.
The ketogenic eating plan involves eating a variety a ketoes, but they are all very different.
For example, a typical ketosis food may include a variety that’s low in fat, high in protein, low in carbs, and high in KFA’s.
A ketones diet usually includes only a few foods, such as vegetables, fruit, whole grains and vegetables, but the vast majority of your food is fat-rich and not very low in carbohydrates.
The problem with a ketos diet is that it doesn’t help you lose weight, because the fats you eat will keep your body fat and your muscles weak.
In the same way, a low fat diet won’t help your muscles grow strong and healthy because your body doesn’t use ketones to replace them.
But a ketoses diet will help you burn fat.
The Benefits of Ketosis You will lose fat faster and in greater amounts than you can lose in a low carbohydrate diet.
The more ketones you eat, the faster you will lose body fat.
And the more fat you burn, the less calories you will need to consume.
So if you want to lose body weight, you must eat a ketogenesis diet.
A typical ketones eating plan includes: 1-2 slices of whole-wheat bread with a side of bacon or sausage 2-3 slices of cheese 2-4 slices of chicken with bacon or ham 2-6 slices of vegetables and fruit 3-4 pieces of nuts or seeds 3-6 ounces of nuts and/or seeds (or fruit and veggies) 2-8 ounces of fish, meat, poultry or fish products, vegetables, fruits and/ or nuts 1-3 ounces of beans, lentils, rice or lentils 1-4 ounces of rice, beans
