Have you ever wondered why you diet and diet, but no matter how much you deprive yourself, the scale never seems to budge?
The way our bodies use fuel is more complicated than we are sometimes led to believe. It’s not always a matter of simple “calories in versus calories out.” Certain foods actually cause our body to crave more food and to hang on to fat stores for dear life, making weight loss much more difficult than it needs to be.
That’s where the ketogenic diet comes in! The ketogenic diet forces the body to rely on fat, rather than blood sugar, for fuel. Because the ketogenic diet is a high-fat, moderate-protein diet, participants will never feel deprived or hungry, will have plenty of energy, and will see the pounds melt off with minimal pain. It’s a win-win!
