( — April 23, 2018) Cheyenne, Wyoming — Everyone has a weight goal in mind, some may be more cognizant of it than others but it’s fair to say every person is mindful of just how much weight they’re carrying around. But it stands to reason that most people don’t know what their ideal body weight should be since such a vast number of Americans are classified as obese. 

“Updated August 31, 2017: According to the most recent data, adult obesity rates now exceed 35 percent in five states, 30 percent in 25 states, and 25 percent in 46 states,” discloses The State of Obesity, an advocacy group campaigning under the slogan Better Policies for a Healthier America. “West Virginia has the highest adult obesity rate at 37.7 percent and Colorado has the lowest at 22.3 percent. The adult obesity rate decreased in Kansas between 2015 and 2016, increased in Colorado, Minnesota, Washington, and West Virginia, and remained stable in the rest of states.” 

It’s quite unfortunate that so many have lost control of their own bodies as they mushroom to such unhealthy sizes when a solution is well within reach. Making smart dietary changes and adopting a more active lifestyle is the fundamental key to regaining control. There are a number of diets touted about but science has backed only a few, among them is the popular keto diet. 

“Different methods for reducing weight using reduced calorie and fat intake combined with exercise have failed to show sustained long-term effects,” explains the U.S. National Library of Medicine research paper entitled Long-term effects of a ketogenic diet in obese patients. “Recent studies from various laboratories, including our own, have shown that a high fat diet rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (ketogenic diet) is quite effective in reducing body weight and the risk factors for various chronic diseases. The present study shows the beneficial effects of a long-term ketogenic diet.” 

One of the simplest ways to pin point one’s ideal weight range is to consult a weight height chart. So according to the National Institute of Health guide, which incorporates body mass index tables, a person who is 5ft 6” should ideally weight 118-148 lbs while they’re considered obese if they start tipping 186lbs and up. With the help of ketosis, the driving process behind the keto diet, it’s only a matter of effort and time before one’s ideal weight is achieved. 

The “keto” in a ketogenic diet comes from the fact that it makes the body produce small fuel molecules called “ketones”,” explains “This is an alternative fuel for the body, used when blood sugar (glucose) is in short supply. Ketones are produced if you eat very few carbs (that are quickly broken down into blood sugar) and only moderate amounts of protein (excess protein can also be converted to blood sugar). On a ketogenic diet, your entire body switches its fuel supply to run almost entirely on fat. Insulin levels become very low, and fat burning increases dramatically. It becomes easy to access your fat stores to burn them off. This is great if you’re trying to lose weight, but there are also other less obvious benefits, such as less hunger and a steady supply of energy, keeping you alert and focused.” 

There are also exogenous ketones such as the HealthyWiser™ KetoFast™ Supplement Powder which impressively supports weight loss efforts while simultaneously enhancing nutrient absorption and boosting energy levels without the jiggers or crash of caffeine. Equally important on a keto diet is to regularly check if one’s body is maintaining a safe level of ketosis so tests like the HealthyWiser™ Ketone Urinalysis Reagent Strips are well advised for delivering accurate and reliable results.
