What Is The Keto diet and Intermittent Fasting, and how to do them properly?

Why Should I Have Ketosis and Be Able to Feel the Effects of it?

I don’t mean in an insulting way, but just difficult to understand right away. In the keto diet,
one of the first things you should know about the ketogenic diet is that it puts your body into a state of ketosis, which makes it hard to digest protein and glucose (in that order). Once that happens, you need to increase the amount of fiber in your diet or your blood levels of ketones will also increase, which is a warning sign that the keto diet is working.

So what happens once you enter the keto phase?

There are several things that happen when you enter the keto phase.keto diet

First, you start to have seizures. Not just normal seizures where one side of the brain lights up and then stops. Seizures happen when blood glucose levels get to high enough and your pancreas won’t do the necessary calculations to let you have the insulin you need to prevent hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).

Second, you start to feel hungry and crave foods that you are used to having.keto diet

Third, the amount of protein in your diet decreases because of the acids produced by the acidosis in your body. Also, protein is one of the few things that your body doesn’t have to make instead, it can be made from glucose. This is the phase you will feel the most in, because you can still eat all you want, but its mostly carbs. If you can cut back on eating lots of starches, you can start to feel more like yourself, but don’t do it too much because starches are a large part of your caloric intake and it will stop the keto diet.

After you enter the keto diet, the amount of protein in your diet starts to decrease and you start to feel hungry. This is also the stage where you should start to start having your protein supplements, because ketosis can get really bad there. If you wait until you are back in ketosis, you can be putting yourself at risk for hypoglycemia, which is a serious problem and could cause death.keto diet

So the end game is to be at an ideal ketosis and not go into it until you are back in ketosis, which is the acidic environment of your body. At a particular point, most people have found it really hard to be in the ketosis because they miss the feeling of hunger. But by waiting and lowering the protein and carb intake, you can be back in ketosis and enjoy the feeling. This is the only way to feel ketosis.
