Retrain Your Body to Burn Fat with Ketosis

Ketogenic Diet ……… Could this be the answer to ridding unnecessary fat from the body & converting it into the energy you long to have once again?

A Ketogenic Diet  is a high-fat, protein adequate, low in carbohydrate diet.

Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted into glucose which is then transported for use around the body. However, if there is very little carbohydrate in the diet, then the liver must convert fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies.  Ketosis is a metabolic process that occurs when the body does not have enough glucose for energy. Stored fats are broken down, resulting in a build-up of acids called ketones within the body. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source.

Following a ketogenic diet allows you to be able to consume fewer calories without feeling hungry while following the diet.
