Benefits of Ketogenic Diet

1. The wonders of ketosis—using your own fat for fuel.

When you actually get into ketosis, you’re running your body on a different fuel which is ketones. Ketones are the original fuel that our bodies ran on a long time ago. It’s using your own fat for fuel instead of glucose and we do very well on this 'clean fuel.'

2. The Ketogenic Diet produces the most weight loss of any diet and gets rid of belly fat.

3. It’s fantastic for the memory.

It works for kids with epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other cognitive disorders.

4. It improves your mood.

The Ketogenic diet plan is great for mood and for your overall emotional state because when you’re running your body on sugar, you get irritable and grouchy all the time.

5. It gets rid of cravings and hunger.

The Keto diet plan virtually slays cravings and hunger, which is great because how are you going to 'diet' when you’re overwhelmed by cravings and hunger? It won’t last and this diet will help you with that.

The reason is because when you run on ketones, you don’t get the fluctuations in blood sugar that creates all these cravings.

6. It fixes the metabolism. 

 It can actually repair a broken metabolism and help you get past your set point weight—that point at which your body stalls with weight loss.

It’s great for busting through weight loss plateaus.

7. It fixes any issues with insulin. 

Think about it. If you have high insulin, diabetes, or insulin resistance, what will this turn into if you do not fix it?

Diabetes, strokes, PCOS, high blood pressure, a fatty liver, cardiovascular issues of all kinds, Alzheimer’s, aneurisms... all sorts of terrible things happen to people when you have high levels of insulin.

I hope I’m selling you on this concept because the Ketogenic diet is the way to go for ultimate weight loss and for ultimate health.

I don’t think you’ll ever go back to eating any other way once you see the Ketogenic diet benefits.
