What is the ketogenic diet anyway?
You must be aware that the body uses sugar in the form of glycogen to function. The
keto diet that is extremely restricted in sugar forces your body to use fat as fuel
instead of sugar, since it does not get enough sugar. When the body does not get
enough sugar for fuel, the liver is forced to turn the available fat into ketones that are
used by the body as fuel - hence the term ketogenic.
This diet is a high fat diet with moderate amounts of protein. Depending on your carb
intake the body reaches a state of ketosis in less than a week and stays there. As fat is
used instead of sugar for fuel in the body, the weight loss is dramatic without any
supposed restriction of calories.
The keto diet is such that it you should aim to get 60-75% of your daily calories from
fat, 15-30% from protein and only 5-10% from carbohydrates. This usually means
that you can eat only 20-50 grams of carbs in a day.
What can you eat on this diet?
The diet is a high fat diet that is somewhat similar to Atkins. However, there is greater
emphasis on fats, usually 'good' fats. On the keto diet you can have
Olive oil
Coconut oil
Nut oils
Butter
Ghee
Grass fed beef
Chicken
Fish
Other meats
Full fat cheese
Eggs
Cream
Leafy greens
Non-starchy vegetables
Nuts
Seeds
You can also get a whole range of snacks that are meant for keto followers. As you
can see from this list, fruits are restricted. You can have low sugar fruits in a limited
quantity (mostly berries), but will have to forego your favorite fruits as these are all
sweet and/or starchy.
This diet includes no grains of any kind, starchy vegetables like potatoes (and all
tubers), no sugar or sweets, no breads and cakes, no beans and lentils, no pasta, no
pizza and burgers and very little alcohol. This also means no coffee with milk or tea
with milk - in fact, no milk and ice-creams and milk based desserts.

Many of these have workarounds as you can get carbohydrate free pasta and pizza,
you can have cauliflower rice and now there are even restaurants that cater to keto
aficionados.
What are the benefits of the keto diet?
If you are wondering if this diet is safe, its proponents and those who have achieved
their weight loss goals will certainly agree that it is safe. Among the benefits of the
keto diet you can expect:
Loss of weight
Reduced or no sugar spikes
Appetite control
Seizure controlling effect
Blood pressure normalizes in high blood pressure patients
Reduced attacks of migraine
Type 2 diabetes patients on this diet may be able to reduce their medications
Some benefits to those suffering from cancer
Apart from the first four, there is not sufficient evidence to support its effectiveness or
otherwise for other diseases as a lot more research is required over the long-term.
Are there any side-effects of this diet?
When you initially start the keto diet, you can suffer from what is known as keto flu.
These symptoms may not occur in all people and usually start a few days after being
on the diet, when your body is in a state of ketosis. Some of the side-effects are:
Nausea
Cramps and tummy pain
Headache
Vomiting
Diarrhea and/or constipation
Muscle cramps
Dizziness and poor concentrations
Insomnia
Carbohydrate and sugar cravings
These may take up to a week to subside as your body get used to the new diet regime.
You can also suffer from other problems when you start the keto diet - you may find
that you have increased urination, so it is important to keep yourself well hydrated.
You may also suffer from keto breath when your body reaches optimal ketosis and
you can use a mouthwash or brush your teeth more frequently.
https://www.digistore24.com/redir/283755/NashWaheedIsmail/
Usually the side effects are temporary and once your body acclimatizes to the new
diet, these should disappear.
How safe is the keto diet?
Just like any other diet that restricts foods in specific categories, the keto diet is not
without risks. As you are not supposed to eat many fruits and vegetables, beans and
lentils and other foods, you can suffer from lack of many essential nutrients. Since the
diet is high in saturated fats and, if you indulge in the 'bad' fats, you can have high
cholesterol levels upping your risk of heart disease.
In the long-term the keto diet can also cause many nutritional deficiencies since you
cannot eat grains, many fruits and vegetables and miss out on fiber as also important
vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and antioxidants among other things. You can
suffer from gastrointestinal distress, lowered bone density (no dairy and other sources
of calcium) and kidney and liver problems (the diet puts added stress on both the
organs).
Is the keto diet safe for you?
If you are willing to forego your usual dietary staples and are really keen to lose
weight, you may be tempted to try out the keto diet. The biggest issue with this diet is
poor patient compliance thanks to the carbohydrate restriction, so you have to be sure
that you can live with your food choices. If you simply find it too difficult to follow,
you can go on a version of the modified keto diet that offers more carbs.
However, the keto diet is definitely effective in helping you lose weight. According to
a recent study many of the obese patients followed were successful in losing weight.
Any problems that they faced were temporary. If you do not have any significant
health problems except for obesity and have been unsuccessful in losing weight
following any conventional diet, the keto diet may a viable option. You must be
absolutely determined to lose the weight and be prepared to go on a restricted diet as
specified. Even if you have any medical problems, you can take your doctor's advice
and a nutritionist's guidance and go on this diet.
Another study that was carried out for a longer time showed that going on the keto
diet is beneficial in weight loss and also results in reduced cholesterol levels with a
decrease in the bad cholesterol and an increase in the good cholesterol.
Is the keto diet safe for you? Most doctors and nutritionists are agreed that the keto
diet is good for weight loss over the short-term. As for the long-term, more studies are
needed. Do keep in mind that obesity is not an apt choice as it comes with its own risk
of health problems.
