WHAT IS Ketogenic
“Ketogenic” is a term for a low-carb diet (like the Atkins diet). The idea is for you to get more calories from protein and fat and less from carbohydrates. You cut back most on the carbs that are easy to digest, like sugar, soda, pastries, and white bread.
HOW KETOGENIC WORKS ?
When you eat less than 50 grams of carbs a day, your body eventually runs out of fuel (blood sugar) it can use quickly. This typically takes 3 to 4 days. Then you’ll start to break down protein and fat for energy, which can make you lose weight. This is called ketosis.
WHAT IS KETOSIS ?
Ketosis is a metabolic state characterise by raised levels of ketone bodies in the body tissues, which is typically pathological in conditions such as diabetes, or maybe the consequence of a diet that is very low in carbohydrates.
THE KETOGENIC DIET
Ketosis is a popular weight loss strategy. Low-carb eating plans include the first part of the Atkins diet and the Paleo diet, which stress proteins for fueling your body. In addition to helping you burn fat, ketosis can make you feel less hungry. It also helps you maintain muscle.
MCT is short for “medium-chain triglycerides,” a type of fatty acid. Triglycerides are the molecules that make up most fats, and medium-chain refers to the length of the fat molecule’s tail.
MCT oil can help you lose weight, and fast. Research shows that MCTs help you burn fat and calories, no matter what diet you follow. It might seem counterintuitive — eat fat, to lose fat? That’s the magic of MCT oil. It increases the amount of fat-burning molecules in your system called ketones. Your body then uses these ketones for energy rather than glucose from carbs. Burning ketones in place of glucose boosts weight loss and reduces inflammation.
Usually you have to fast, cut way down on carbs, or exercise is hard to get your body to produce ketones. With MCT oil, you raise your ketone levels in a matter of minutes, with very little effort.
WHY WILL YOU FEEL FULL WHEN USING MCT OIL ?
Fat is super satiating. When you fill up on the right fats, you feel fuller, for longer. That frees you up to focus on your day, minus distracting cravings. MCT oils are especially good at this — they raise ketones, and ketones suppress ghrelin (the hunger hormone) and increase cholecystokinin (CCK), which keeps you feeling full.
