POSITIVE EFFECTS OF KETOGENIC DIET
One of the biggest benefits of keto diet is, obviously, weight loss. Low-carb diets have been proven very successful in people struggling with obesity; ketogenic diet – being a low-carb diet in its core, is as effective (if not more). To add a personal note – I have lost about 12kg/26lbs on keto so far; I want to lose a few more to reach my (long-awaited) goal weight.
Lower blood sugar is another benefit of this diet and it can be of vital importance especially for type 2 diabetes patients. Running on ketones instead of carbs lowers your insulin levels, thus lowering your blood sugar.
Improved brain function is another benefit many people (especially older generations) following the ketogenic diet noticed after some time – maintaining focus longer than usual, better memory, mental clarity.
Once you get into the state of ketosis, you will see your energy levels rising. Personally, I noticed my performance in the gym improved drastically after a month or so on keto. I started lifting more, I endure longer cardio training… and I rarely have a problem climbing stairs to my 6th-floor-no-elevator-apartment!
Appetite control is another benefit of keto. If you do it right, of course, you will never feel hunger 2 hours after a meal, and on top of that, you might not have your usual cravings on keto diet – this one I can confirm personally!
