The word Ketosis is thrown around a lot by people in the health and fitness industry, fitness professionals and even medical professionals. So exactly what is it?
Well, Ketosis is a natural metabolic state your body enters when your body is deprived of carbohydrates. When your body switches from using primarily carbohydrates for fuel it switches to using fats as an energy source. Typically, the body burns carbohydrates from food to function, but when you adopt a diet of low calories (and low carbohydrates) your body switches into ketosis. When your body is in a state of ketosis the body is burning fat for energy, meaning you are tapping into the body’s fat storage that is often the hardest to shift.
To enter a state of Ketosis you should follow a pretty stringent diet, called the Ketogenic Diet.
So what is a Ketogenic Diet?
The Ketogenic Diet is a very low-carb, moderate protein diet, which turns the body into a fat-burning machine. There are many potential benefits including weight loss, improved cognitive clarity, longevity, increased energy and quicker recovery time.
To lose weight or even maintain your current weight, ketosis is the optimal state for your body to be in.
