The Ketogenic Diet
Have you heard about the Ketogenic Diet?
When following a ketogenic eating plan, carbohydrate in-take is drastically reduced. Carbs are replaced with good fats, shifting metabolism towards utilising up fat stores.
I became very intrigued about ketogenesis some time ago. Clients in America started talking about how effective they found training on an empty stomach in terms of burning fat. I started to investigate ketosis: how fat metabolism could be boosted and how this could affect energy levels throughout the week.
By eliminating carbs fat-burning is kicked into overdrive triggering weight loss by way of ketosis.This leaflet explains how to do that.
Although the Ketogenic diet won’t suit everyone, I have found that post winter coming into summer 6-8 weeks spent on a purely Ketogenic diet really boosts the fat burning system in the body.
At Ultimate Bodytec [www.ultimatebodytec.com] we have introduced bullet proof coffee on to our menu as a means of helping people adhere to the elements of Ketogenesis.
