Ketogenic diets are powerful tools, and they can be life changing. Shifting to a low carb, fat burning diet can help you reduce your high blood pressure, banish heartburn, get rid of joint pain, and stop pre-diabetes in its tracks.
What is a ketogenic diet?
Contrary to popular rhetoric, a ketogenic, low carb diet is NOT a high protein diet. It’s a high fat diet, with a moderate protein and a very low carbohydrate intake.
What makes the ketogenic diet so effective?
It all starts with a process called ketosis, and the effect that it has on each one of the trillions of cells in our bodies. In short, ketosis means more energy and cleaner fuel burning in our cells, which leads to better cell health, better organ health, and better health overall.
A diet high in clean saturated fats and low in carbohydrates actually raises your HDL good cholesterol and lowers your triglycerides. These two factors are really the true measure of good heart health.
