Keto diet is basically low carb diet.
The ketogenic or “ keto ” diet is a low-carbohydrate, fat-rich diet that has been used for centuries to treat specific medical conditions.
In the 19 th century, the ketogenic diet was commonly used to help control diabetes.
In 1920 it was introduced as an effective treatment for epilepsy in children in whom medication was ineffective.
The ketogenic diet has also been tested and used in closely monitored settings for cancer, diabetes , polycystic ovary syndrome, and Alzheimer’s disease.
The ketogenic diet is based on the principle that by depleting the body of carbohydrates, which are its primary source of energy, you can force the body to burn fat for fuel, thereby maximizing weight loss.
When you consume foods that contain carbohydrates, the body converts those carbohydrates into glucose, or blood sugar, which it then uses for energy.
There are several types of the keto diet, but essentially, to achieve a state of ketosis, you have to severely reduce the amount of carbs you eat.
But is the keto diet all it’s cracked up to be?
Benefits of the Keto Diet
At least in the short term, studies show that keto diets get amazing and quick results for weight loss.
They can also improve conditions like type 2 diabetes.
These benefits come from many factors, including:
Lower insulin levels:
When you eat foods with carbohydrates and to a lesser extent protein, you raise your blood sugar levels.
Insulin steps in to lower:
those blood sugar levels, delivering glucose to your cells for energy or to store for backup fuel called glycogen.
But high insulin levels :
which can happen when you eat too many carbohydrates — can prevent fat loss. On a keto diet, you keep insulin levels lower.
Low insulin means that your body can more easily access fat stores for fuel.
Keto diets help balance other hormones besides insulin.
Among those hunger-regulating hormones is leptin, a hormone that tells your brain to stop eating. Ghrelin has the opposite effect:
This hormone tells you to eat more. When these and other hormones stay in balance on a keto diet, you’re less likely to have hunger and cravings.
Lower inflammation levels:
Chronic inflammation plays a role in obesity but also diseases including diabetes.
Sugar, in all its many disguises, is an inflammatory food. On a keto diet, you keep your sugar and overall carbohydrate intake very low.
When you combine that approach with whole, unprocessed foods, you lower inflammation levels.
