Ketogenic Diet

Ketogenic diet:

Ketosis is a state at which your body produces ketones in the liver, shifting the body's metabolism away from glucose and towards fat utilization. Ketosis state has not only been shown beneficial for breaking down fat but is also being used for treating diseases such as epilepsy, Alzheimer's or cancer. Research has demonstrated that this nutrition plan improves insulin sensitivity and reduces inflammation throughout the body. This leads to greater fat metabolism and muscle development as well as a reduced risk of chronic disease.

 

Ketone Testing for Ketogenic Diets:

If you have normal blood glucose, your blood ketones may be the highest in the morning after your overnight fast. However, many people report that their ketones rise over the course of the day. If you want to track your blood ketones day-to-day, picking one time of day and sticking with it will give you the best comparison.

 

Nutritional Ketosis (often defined as between 0.5 and 3 mmol/L), know that it can take two to four weeks to get consistently into this range. It often takes a fair amount of tweaking to figure out what you can and can't eat, even for people who are low-carb veterans.
