The Full Effect of Ketogenic Diets

( — January 20, 2018) Cheyenne, Wyoming — The Atkin’s diet is probably the most popular high protein/low carb diet around for the last few decades, and for good reason. It works! Drastically cutting down carbohydrate intake allows the body to turn to stored fat for energy through a process called ketosis, by which ketones are produced. Exogenous ketones, such as the HealthyWiser™ KetoFast™ dietary supplements, also stimulate the creation of ketones to enhance weight loss efforts. 

“The shift, from using circulating glucose to breaking down stored fat as a source of energy, usually happens over two to four days of eating fewer than 20 to 50 grams of carbohydrates per day,” says Harvard Health Publishing. “Keep in mind that this is a highly individualized process, and some people need a more restricted diet to start producing enough ketones.”

Keto diet requires a lot of discipline to eliminate carbohydrates so it demands a heavy intake of healthy fats and proteins like lean red meat, egg, cheese, yogurt, fish rich in omega-3, nuts, seeds and fibrous vegetables. Forcing the body into ketosis, however, comes with a few side effects as would be expected with any changes from one end of the spectrum to another.

“Because it is so restrictive, it is really hard to follow over the long run, carbohydrates normally account for at least 50% of the typical American diet,” explains Marcelo Campos, Clinical Assistant Professor at Tufts School of Medicine. “Patients with kidney disease need to be cautious because this diet could worsen their condition. Additionally, some patients may feel a little tired in the beginning, while some may have bad breath, nausea, vomiting, constipation, and sleep problems.”

While these issues are not unique or exclusive to keto diets, due diligence ought to be observed in researching any dietary changes especially if there are pre-existing conditions to factor in. Diabetics undertaking a low-carb diet could require adjusted insulin dosages so a physician should be consulted in advance.

Adding more salt to meals is recommended to replace the excess loss of sodium associated with frequent urinating, which also points to the fact that more water should be drunk as well. Moreover, it’s important to consume a large amount of healthy fat to avoid dizziness and fatigue. To help gently ease the body into a state of ketosis, there are many exogenous ketone supplements offered on the market and among the best is the KetoFast™ by HealthyWiser™ which improves the absorption of nutrients as it increases one’s metabolic rate.
