Are you considering trying the Keto Zone Diet?
This revolutionary approach to weight loss and health has been taking the world by storm as more and more experimental research and anecdotal clinical evidence stacks up showing the incredible benefits of this way of eating.
The Keto Zone is when your metabolism transitions from primarily using glucose (sugar) as fuel to primarily using ketones (fat) for fuel.
Before you experience what it is like to get in the Keto Zone for weight loss and overall health and wellness, we have had many interested people ask about what kind of specific results they can expect when switching their diet.
Here is a list of the 7 most powerful reasons to get in the Keto Zone today:
Burn Fat All Day Every Day
The Keto Zone is a state of “keto adaptation” where the cells begin to utilize fat metabolites called ketones as their primary fuel source. Keto adaptation is achieved by strictly limiting carbohydrate consumption to less than 20 grams per day.
This starves the cells of glucose, which is a quick burning “dirty fuel,” and forces the cells to turn to using the clean and stable energy from fat. This includes belly fat, the fat around your thighs, and the dangerous visceral fat around your organs. All of this body is stored energy waiting to be utilized.
Have More Energy
It turns out that fat actually contains 9 calories of energy while sugar only contains 4. Fat is a denser and more efficient source of energy for your cells. This means that you can have stable and reliable energy all day long without the high and the crash associated with carbohydrate consumption.
When you are in the Keto Zone, your body becomes a fat burning machine. As long as you have fat on your body, you have energy to burn!
Lower Blood Sugar and Increase Insulin Resistance
Most of us have spent our entire lives consuming some form of carbohydrate (bread, pasta, potatoes, tortillas, candy, crackers, biscuits, rice, etc.) every few hours to satiate our sugar-addicted cells. This has led to a widespread epidemic of metabolic diseases such as obesity and diabetes. These diseases are caused by chronicly elevated blood sugar which signals the production of massive amounts of insulin. The constant influx of insulin leads to insulin receptors to become numb to the signal from insulin.
In the Keto Zone, when carbohydrate consumption is restricted, it allows blood sugar levels to balance out. This creates a situation where the body no longer needs to produce excess insulin which allows the insulin receptors to become re-sensitized to the presence of insulin.
This is why the Keto Zone is so therapeutic for those with obesity, type 2 diabetes, and prediabetes.
Eliminate Cravings and Decrease Appetite
Once your body recognizes the vast amount of energy available from stored body fat, you will virtually lose your appetite. Your cells will no longer rely on external carbohydrates for energy but will instead readily turn to the fat around your belly, arms, legs, and organs as a reliable and stable source of fuel.
This is keto adaptation, and once you are keto adapted, your cells will be more likely to use stored body fat as fuel even if you eat carbohydrates.
Enhance Cognitive Function
Ketogenic diets were originally implemented as a seizure prevention therapy for those with epilepsy. This is because ketones are a more stable and less excitory source of energy for the brain.
Many researchers actually consider ketones, not sugar, to be the preferred source of energy by the brain.
In fact, many cognitive diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia are now being treated by ketogenic diets in both experimental and clinical settings.
Raise “Good” (HDL) Cholesterol
High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is popularly referred to as “good” cholesterol.
It’s actually technically incorrect to call lipoproteins “cholesterol.” There is only one type of cholesterol. Lipoproteins such as HDL and LDL are types of proteins that carry cholesterol around in the blood.
LDL distributes cholesterol from the liver to the rest of the body. HDL carries cholesterol away from those areas of the body and back to the liver, where it will be reused or excreted.
It is commonly accepted that when HDL levels are higher, heart disease risk is lower. The generous amount of healthy fat consumed on the Keto Zone diet tends to lead to an increase in HDL levels.
Improve “Bad” (LDL) Cholesterol Profile
Often referred to as the “bad” cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) is known to be associated with a increased risk of heart attack and cardiovascular disease.
However, it turns out that there are two types of LDL and one is dangerous while the other is not.
The small and dense LDL particles are more prone to oxidation and are more likely to lead to heart disease. On the other hand, the large and fluffy LDL particles are considered rather benign as they are not associated with an increased risk of a cardiovascular event.
The Keto Zone actually causes LDL particles to convert from the dangerous small form to the harmless large form. Additionally, the overall amount of LDL particles will usually be decreased.
