A ketogenic diet is basically a high-fat, moderate-protein and low-carbohydrate diet. This dietary pattern changes the fuel that energizes the body; It modifies the way energy is utilized by the body. The keto – diet plunges the body system into a state of ‘ketosis’, where-in the body burn fats for fuel instead of carbohydrates. However, the science of keto – dieting and its relationship with weight loss is still unfolding.
Diary of a Ketogenic Lifestyle Admirer…..
”Am really interested in losing weight, but I don’t have the time and energy to enroll in a gym. I just want a diet plan that will do the wonders, I have tried many and never succeeded in slimming down.
I tried home workout routines… aerobics, weight lifting. these have been rewarding although the results are not as dramatic as I want. But I really need to fling back, the fats around my waist, thighs and arms… I need to get my swag back, look leaner and younger. But I couldn’t help but notice the many ‘before and after’ weight loss pictures posted in Facebook by adherents of the Ketogenic lifestyle.
I won’t fail to mention the new buzzing words, which weren’t very familiar to me until I started stalking keto followers. Did you say, Mint leaf, Stevia, Psylium Husk, Apple Cider Vinegar, Coconut Flour Cake?… Even, Cream of Tartar, Avocado oil, Bullet Proof Coffee, Zero Carb Seasoning, Chia Seed, Almond oil and Flaxseed.
And what is more, the sudden increase in the price of Coconuts, Lemon and Avocado Pear (in my locality), which may not be unconnected to increase in demand by ketogenic lifestyle group members.
However, I am yet to join … because I have doubts about the long – term safety of this lifestyle, hence I have been doing more googling, more research, more thinking.
But from an economic point of view, sale of Keto food items have paved way for the creation of new business avenue. However, for an average income family, keto eating lifestyle is a little bit expensive especially if you are the only one in the family living the keto-way.
Well, I must say, the Admin of these Keto Facebook Groups are really doing a great job with dispelling the usual ‘fears of fat’ and motivating their followers. On the other hand, the enthusiasts of keto cheer themselves on with the following lines: Who fat don Help?…Keto is Bae….Keto Rocks…Keto, All the way…..Keto on, My peeps..I am Slaying Hot, Loving my new me! ….. Fat Must Go.
