What Does Ketosis Mean?

If you’ve been spending your time online, looking for different diets and weight loss solutions, you’ve probably come across the word ketosis. The Keto Diet is currently one of the most popular diets that people are choosing to follow, and here at Novopelle Med Spa, we offer the KE Diet, which is similar to the Keto Diet, in that, it works to get your body into a state of ketosis for optimal weight loss. The good news about the diet we offer is that you don’t have to worry about counting macros, calories, or getting enough fat in your diet. The KE Diet will do all of the work for you by allowing you to get all of the nutrients you need for either five or 10 days from a feeding tube. This takes all of the guesswork out of the first few days of your diet, so you can see the results you want.

The Basics Of Ketosis

Ketosis is a metabolic process that your body performs in order to keep things working correctly. If your body lacks carbohydrates from food to burn for energy, it will choose to burn fat instead. During this process, your body will make ketones. Ketones are a substance made from your body breaking down fat for energy instead of sugar from carbs. Your body doesn’t usually make or use ketones when your diet consists mainly of carbohydrates. And if your body makes too many ketones, it can be dangerous for your health. However, when diets that focus on getting your body into a state of ketosis are done correctly, it can be optimal for burning fat, feeling less hungry, and maintaining muscle mass.

The Benefits Of Ketosis

Because your body is using fat for energy instead of sugar when you’re in a state of ketosis, you can see increased weight loss benefits. Since your body is not turning carbohydrates and protein into glucose, as it normally would, and it’s turning fat into ketones instead, you are likely to be able to maintain better regulation of your blood sugar level. Some of you may remember the attack on fat that started in the 1980s and 1990s, however, with more and more research being focused on diets and what makes us fat, sugar has been highlighted as a main culprit of weight gain—not fat. While it’s true that if you combine too much sugar with too much fat, you will see detrimental effects, it’s not true that fat will make you fat. If done correctly, regulating your body to limit carbs and proteins in order to focus on getting enough fat, could have great weight loss benefits.
