Ketogenic Diet For The Ultimate Photogenic Body
Keto, anyone? What in the world is keto and why is important? Keto, in simple terms is the process in which you sort of trick your body into thinking it needs to break down body fat in order to obtain and replenish energy instead of using carbs. Keto diet has now gained a hug following because it’s just super effective and works super fast, you’ll have your dream body in no time!
Is It supported by science you ask?
To start, you need to put your body into what is called a ketogenic state, wherein you only ingest ample amounts of fat, take low amounts of protein, and absolutely little to no carbs at all. To illustrate, you will need 80% of fat and only the rest is protein, no crabs. You need to follow this diet for the first two days. When you’ve achieved such a state, you will now have to shift ratios and should now take at least 30% protein, more or less 65% fat, and the rest is whatever you choose to eat. An increase in protein will help maintain muscle tissue growth. An increase in carb intake, however, only increases the release of insulin in our body which helps store amino acids, glycogen, and some excess calories and turns them into fat. Therefore, it is common sense to stop putting too much carbs in your body so it doesn’t store unwanted fat that will not only ruin your figure, but also cause some serious potential health risks.
Now that your body has absolutely little to no carbs available for energy sourcing, it will now find other sources to produce energy. Excess fat. I think you mentioned you wanted all your excess fat trimmed off? Well, this way you can and safely too! Your body will now make use of fat as its main energy source! This state of your body is called ketosis. This is one of the healthiest, safest, and most effective ways to burn unwanted fat as well as the ideal state you want your body to be in.
But of course, that isn’t the end of the road in your ketogenic diet journey. To maintain this state of ketosis, you need to work out a plan in your diet. You should take at least a gram of protein for every pound of lean mass you take. This is beneficial in the repain and recovery of muscle tissue after your workout sessions at the gym or sports training. To illustrate, if you weigh at least 180 pounds of lean mass, then you need to take in 180 grams of protein everyday. That is 720 calories which means the rest of your calories should only come from fat.
