What is ketosis and how will it help me lose weight?

There are many diet programs out there that promise amazing results if you just stick to the plan. But in the end, many of them fail because it is just too hard to keep up with or they were just gimmicks in the first place. There is one diet plan that works naturally with the human body and has been part of human evolution since the beginning of time. This is ketosis.

Ketosis is a natural way for the body to use fat as the primary source of fuel instead of carbohydrates. Ketones are produced when the body metabolizes fat for energy. Your body will go into ketosis when you eat a diet low in carbohydrates but high in protein. Eating this way naturally induces the body into ketosis. 

When glucose and glycogen levels are depleted our insulin and blood sugar decrease, so our bodies are forced to find alternative sources of fuel. 

A few hundred years ago, it was normal for people to live in a state of ketosis because carbohydrates were hard to come by. During winter when fruits and grains were scarce, our ancestors relied on ketones for energy. Today ketones are mostly dormant because of our diet rich in high carbohydrate and sugar. However, the information is for ketosis is still there and can be easily obtained if we want it. 

Ketosis can help sustain weight loss by regulating hormones that often make dropping pounds a challenge. A ketonic diet helps you avoid unhealthy cravings for food that would make you gain the weight back while also feeling full with fewer hunger pains.
