7 Benefits of Burning Fat for Energy


Blog Image: 7 Benefits of Burning Fat for Energy

The primary reason that so many people are overweight these days is that the typical American diet is overloaded with non-fiber carbohydrates as the primary fuel. These inhibit your body's ability to access and burn body fat. When your body creates glucose from high-carb foods, insulin is produced to process the glucose in your blood stream. The keto diet is a very low carbohydrate diet, which turns the body into a fat-burning machine. On a low-carb, high-fat diet, your body enters a metabolic state called ketosis and uses ketone bodies for energy instead of glucose.

Ketosis doesn't require starvation of calories but starvation of carbohydrates. Fat burning is vastly increased while fat-storing hormones drop dramatically. Once your body successfully makes the switch from using carbohydrates to using fat and ketones for fuel, you will see benefits that may include:

  • Efficient Weight Loss Faster
  • Better Cholesterol Levels
  • Less Risk of Cardiovascular Disease
  • Increased Mental Focus
  • Eliminates Hunger Pangs
  • Stable Blood Glucose Levels
  • Improved Skin Conditions

Following a keto meal plan, weight loss can often be substantial and happen quickly for those who start the diet very overweight or obese. A drop in fasting blood sugar and fasting insulin levels means less sugar coming in, less sugar driving up blood sugar and lower insulin levels.

For most people, a drastic shift in their eating habits and can be overwhelming, but don't let getting started on a keto diet can be intimidating. In addition to limiting your intake of carbohydrates, achieving ketosis is simple just restrict your protein intake and consume more fat. It takes 3 to 4 days to reach ketosis when following a low-carb, high-fat diet based on eating real foods. To see if keto-friendly foods will work for you, contact the Metabolic Research Center.

From the moment I inquired via Facebook to over 2 months ago I have been nothing but pleased with the support and encouragement of the staff! I love the encouraging text messages that randomly pop up on my phone as well! I have been on many weight loss plans and I can honestly say that although this is not the least expensive program it is the healthiest and more 'REAL LIFE' plan that sets you up for success. I love the bars and the tomato soup most of all! If you are on the fence I encourage you to take a leap of faith and do this for yourself!! We most times put ourselves last and in all reality if we are healthy and feel good emotionally and physically we are a better person for those around us.
