Become Photogenic With Ketogenic Diet

Ever heard of keto? Is keto some kind of food? Keto is actually a process in wherein you trick your body into making use of body fat, bad fat, as its main source of energy instead of breaking down carbohydrates. Keto diet has now gained a hug following because it’s just super effective and works super fast, you’ll have your dream body in no time!

Is It supported by science you ask?

For this to work, you need to put yourself in a ketogenic state or a state where you have only been eating high amounts of fat, very low protein, and absolutely no carbs. To give you a picture, you will need a ratio of 80% fat in your diet and 20% of that is protein only, absolutely no carbs please. You need to follow this ratio for your first two days in your diet. After those two ‘fat’ days, you will have achieved ketogenic state and should now change up your diet a bit with 30% protein, 65% fat, the rest is really up to you. Protein here is increased to benefit the growth of muscles. An increase in carb intake, however, only increases the release of insulin in our body which helps store amino acids, glycogen, and some excess calories and turns them into fat. Therefore, it is common sense to stop putting too much carbs in your body so it doesn’t store unwanted fat that will not only ruin your figure, but also cause some serious potential health risks.

Now that your body is deprived of carbs, its ‘usual’ source of energy, then it will look for other sources to produce your much needed energy to jump start your day. Excess fat. I think you mentioned you wanted all your excess fat trimmed off? Well, this way you can and safely too! Your body will now make use of fat as its main energy source! This is called ketosis. This is absolutely the state you want to have you body be in if you want to lose fat and maintain muscle growth.

But of course, your ketigenic diet doesn’t end there! From here on, you will need to plan your diet. In this diet, you should take at least a gram of protein for every pound of lean mass daily. This is helpful in the recovery of muscle tissue after your workout at the gym or whatever it is you do. To illustrate, if you weigh at least 180 pounds of lean mass, then you need to take in 180 grams of protein everyday. That means, if you multiply it by 4 (amount of calories per gram) then you get 720 calories from protein intake and rest should come from fat.
