A ketogenic diet is a diet that’s mainly high in fat, moderate in protein and low in carbohydrates. It allows the body to convert fat to be used as energy. When you eat food that is high in carbs, your body will produce glucose and insulin.
- Glucose is the easiest molecule for your body to convert and use as energy, so it will be chosen over any other energy source. Typically on a normal, higher carbohydrate diet, the body will use glucose as the main form of energy.
- Insulin is produced to process the glucose in your bloodstream, by taking it around the body. Since the glucose is being used as a primary energy, your fats would not be needed, and are therefore stored.
By lowering the intake of carbs, the body is induced into a state known as ketosis. Ketosis is a natural process where we produce ketones, which are formed by the breakdown of fats in the liver.
The end goal of a properly maintained keto diet is to force your body into this metabolic state. We don’t do this through limitation of calories, but though limitation of carbohydrates. Our bodies are extremely adaptive to what’s put in them -when you overload it with fats and take away carbohydrates, it will begin to burn fat (via ketones) as the main energy source.
