Let us formally introduce ourselves here at KetoWorld

Posted by Keto World on

Hello fellow Keto friends, and welcome to Keto World!

Chances are good that if you’ve found our website, you might have heard the term “Keto Diet” before; you might not be 100% sure what said diet entails, however. Thankfully, we’re here to answer any questions you may have, starting with a basic introduction to the science behind the diet...

First and foremost, the Keto Diet is primarily based around a low carbohydrate diet (it is also known as simply the Low Carb Diet for this very reason). The reason for this is that a diet high in carbs produces a larger amount of Glucose, which is the easiest kind of molecule for the human body to break down and use for energy- therefore, it is prioritised over other sources of energy the body may intake. As a result, fats are stored rather then used, contributing to weight gain.

By massively reducing the intake of Glucose and prioritising fat intake, our bodies can be forced into a state known as Ketosis (which is where the diet gets one of its many names from). Ketosis is a metabolic state the body enters when food intake is low, where our livers break down fats into Ketones to be re-absorbed into the body, rather then simply storing them. Starving the body of carbohydrates is one of the safest ways to induce Ketosis, as the body is still getting a healthy calorie intake.

The obvious end result of a Keto Diet is that it leads to a greater rate of weight loss, as the body begins to burn through both stored up fat and new intake, however studies have also shown that a Keto Diet can lead to greater physical and mental health benefits in the long run.

 We hope this answers any initial questions you may have about the Keto Diet; next, we will be giving you a rough guide of what exactly you should be eating on a Keto Diet.
