Why is the Ketotarian® diet so good at fighting inflammation?
The Ketotarian® Plan is particularly good at quelling that inflammation storm. By putting your body into a state of ketosis, the plan helps you burn fat as fuel and activate genes responsible for the health and function of your detoxification pathways. It also promotes healthier cell function.
Why is the Ketotarian® diet so good at fighting balancing blood sugar?
The typical American eats and drinks an average of 130 pounds of added sugar every year, some of it from obvious sources, but much of it from hidden ones. Most people today eat so much sugar and so many carbohydrates that they end up with blood glucose levels that are dangerously high. High blood sugar is toxic and it can lead to serious health issues. Any sugar the body can’t burn gets stored as fat around your liver, stomach, and in circulating fat (known as triglycerides). Burning sugar as your primary source of energy is like using dirty fuel – you have to refuel often or you will get “hangry” on that blood sugar roller coaster. You don’t have to get stuck in that cycle. Instead, you could be burning fat, a more efficient fuel source for your metabolism.
What are ketones?
A by-product of fat metabolism is ketones, which your body and brain can use as a slow-burning, efficient source of fuel. Ketosis allows you to consume far fewer carbohydrates while simultaneously increasing your energy. Less blood sugar means less insulin, and as insulin levels fall and your body requires energy, your liver produces ketones to fuel your body. Your brain can also use ketones as an alternative fuel source when blood levels of ketones are high enough to cross the blood-brain barrier.
Is it healthy to eat that much fat?
Your brain is comprised of 60 percent fat. In order for the brain to work optimally, it needs a lot of energy. From an evolutionary and biological standpoint, the most sustainable form of energy comes from healthy fats.
