…Losing weight and looking good 365 days a year
Put bluntly there no other “diet” that allows me do accomplish the above… And for those specific reasons is why I am absolutely obsessed with it
I no longer count calories, track my food, or really even care what my total intake is anymore..
…I do think tracking and weighing out your food is important when you first start your keto journey.
But we’ll save that spiel for another time
Many would agree that most “diets” are not sustainable long term and often have you feeling sluggish with low energy.
If you are here looking at this page you can probably relate.
In my opinion the hardest part about doing the keto diet is buying into the fact that the majority of your calorie intake will comes from fats…. not so much executing on it.
So What Exactly Is The Ketogenic Diet?
The ketogenic diet is a high fat, moderate protein, extremely low carbohydrate diet, in which you are essentially reprogramming your body to use fat as its primary fuel source as opposed to carbohydrate.
Reducing your carbohydrate levels and depleting your body of glycogen can put you in a state of Ketosis which means your body no longer is run on glucose and is using ketones as it primary fuel source….
…..which is the ultimate goal of starting a keto diet.
Most people go down this Ketogenic path with one goal in mind, and that is weight loss and burning fat. While that is a tremendous thing..The health benefits you get are so much greater.
How It Works
for the sake of keeping it simple, what you need to know is the keto diet stops your body from constantly releasing insulin and levels out our blood sugar levels…
And if you know anything about insulin it, it has been called the ” fat storage hormone” so by limiting your carbs you stop blood sugar spike and the release of insulin in your body.
The Holy Grail Of Benefits
It seems like everyday more and more new data is coming out proving old stereo type wrong on how fat works in the body. Research is showing the ketogenic diet can improve risk factors in a number of different conditions and diseases like:
- Heart Disease
- Tumor Growth
The keto diet has even been coined the “Cancer Diet” as when you stop feeding your body carbs that eventually get broken down in to sugars… you stop fueling the fire that is cancer.. Sugar is cancers biggest fuel source.. think of it as throwing gas on a bonfire.
Yeah, Yeah Sounds Great… Tell Me About The Fat Loss
I get it those are cool things, but most of you are probably in a position where those things don’t matter to you right at this moment. If was a betting man ( and I am) I would bet your goal with the keto diet is to shed some pounds and look good…And to be honest it is fairly easy – You can check out My Beginners Guide and Recommended Food Fist here to lean how.
So, if you are not sold at this point as to why I think this is so great.. here are some things to look forward to once you star your journey..
- Accelerate weight loss
- Increase fat burning
- better focus and mental clarity
- Reduced hunger
- Improved cholesterol levels
- Longer sustained energy through out the day
- Lowered inflammation
- Healthy skin
- Lower blood pressure
Overall this has been the BEST nutritional decision I have made in my life. From my experience the “diet” is quite easy to maintain once you get going, yet still let’s you indulge a from time to time.
<== That is me
The reason I love keto so much is just for the fact that i am able to maintain the physique I want 365 days a year while still being able to live a normal social life..
It has been a great journey thus far and I hope to keep it going- I have learned a lot on the way and… have also made a some mistakes-
So use me as a resource
I generally keep this lean of a physique for the the year give or take a little depending on the season.
I am not the biggest, strongest, most shredded dude in the world but it is a physique I can be proud of…
…and one that is absolutely attainable with some dedication for any one who is willing to put in the effort (Sorry for the awkward bathroom selfie in advance I haven’t made big enough yet to warrant quality photos) haha
If the keto diet and ketosis is something you are into trying, definitely continue to do your research I promise it is life changing.
Within the past couple months I decided to give exogenous ketones a try, despite being skeptical at first as i have tried most supplements under the sun at this point .
I was rather surprised with what I got out of these, you can check out my full review of Perfect Keto Base Exogenous Ketone here.
Please know it is not a miracle supplement
it has it’s fair share of benefits you can actually feel…but unfortunately marketing in the supplement world is very hyped up and can be misleading..
I think ketones actually get a bad wrap because of how they are marketed.. it is sad but .. I personally am a big fan I have been using these for the last couple months and am still pleased.. Mixed with coffee cant Beat it
Anyways, have a great week and seriously consider going to the keto side.. It is a game changer.
