Your Wellbeing World, an online platform dedicated to health, nutrition and fitness and general wellbeing, launched a new report covering the benefits of the ketogenic diet. The article explains in detail how ketogenics diets work, while also providing information on the effects these diets have on the body and inside of the cells.

The ketogenic or keto diet is a low-carbohydrate, fat-rich eating plan that has been used for centuries to treat specific medical conditions. In essence, this is a diet that causes the body to release ketones into the bloodstream. Most cells prefer to use blood sugar, which comes from carbohydrates, as the body’s main source of energy.

In the absence of circulating blood sugar from food, the body starts breaking down stored fat into molecules called ketone bodies. This process is called ketosis and indicates that most cells will use ketone bodies to generate energy.

In the new report by Your Wellbeing World, readers will find a summary of four major studies suggesting the ketogenic diet has been shown to produce beneficial metabolic changes in the short-term. Along with weight loss, health parameters associated with carrying excess weight have improved, such as insulin resistance, high blood pressure, and elevated cholesterol and triglycerides.

According to one study, ketones are much more efficient in generating greater amounts of energy per molecule than glucose. As a result, they represent a more sustainable energy source for the body and do not cause the blood sugar spikes that glucose causes. By cutting carbs, one also cuts sugar and simple, refined carbohydrates, which means a steadier supply of energy.

A ketogenic diet also has been shown to improve blood sugar control for patients with type 2 diabetes, at least in the short term. However, there is no long-term research analyzing its effects over time on diabetes and high cholesterol.

The report also notes that: “From a practical standpoint, many (including even the staunchest keto advocates) trace the effectiveness (and benefits) back to RULES. We want to know where we’re at. We want to know how we’re doing. And the rules of keto do just that. And when someone follows that rule, the menu of food options gets limited tremendously. And when you do that consistently over time, voilà! The keto diet can be tremendously effective for weight loss and lead to improvements in virtually all aspects of life and health.”
