What Is KETOSIS?
KETOSIS : The metabolic state where the body burns fat for energy instead of carbohydrates and sugars.
GLUCOSE vs FAT
Our bodies have two main energy sources: fat and glucose.Glucose is produced from sugars, carbohydrates and excess proteins. Fats come directly from many foods and oils, and indirectly from excess glucose the body does not burn.
The typical American diet is high in carbohydrates which the body converts to glucose. The body will metabolize the glucose first, but what the body doesn’t burn will then be converted to excess fat. Add this fat to ingested fat, and you compound the problem. The converted fats and the ingested fats are stored for future use causing weight gain.
Ketogenic living is maintaining a diet high in healthy fats,moderate
amounts of quality proteins, and limited carbohydrates.
KETOGENIC LIVING vs
ABLE’S WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM, “ABLE 40”
During Phase 2 of our plan, we limit ingested fats so that your body
metabolizes its stored fat. After Phase 2, we increase ingested healthy
fats, transitioning you to ketogenic living.
BENEFITS OF A LONG TERM
The benefits include, but are not limited to, cognitive mental clarity,
increased confidence impacting all areas of your life, more energy,
reduced daily pain and inflammation, and a leaner body. Therapeutically,
the medical profession utilizes ketogenic diets for many patients with
Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Cancer, Epilepsy, etc. Finally, the ketogenic diet
has been studied and found to diminish, and in some cases, reverse Type
2 Diabetes. Whatever your motivation is, being “keto” is a great long-term plan.
