A keto diet is an eating plan that focuses on foods that provide a lot of healthful fats, adequate amounts of protein, and very few carbohydrates. The goal is to get more calories from fat than from carbs.
General: The diet works by depleting the body of its sugar reserves. As a result, it will start to break down fat for energy. This results in the production of molecules called ketones that the body uses for fuel. When the body burns fats, it can also lead to weight loss.
The benefits of the keto diet
• Supports weight loss
• May reduce risk of certain cancers
• May improve heart health
• May protect brain function
• Improves PCOS symptoms
Risks and complications
The ketogenic diet may have a range of health benefits. However, there is the risk of the following health problems:
• kidney stones
• excess protein in the blood
• mineral and vitamin deficiencies
• a build-up of fat in the liver
The keto diet can cause adverse side effects that many people know as keto flu. These adverse effects may include:
• low blood sugar
• a low tolerance for exercise
These symptoms are especially common at the beginning of the diet as the body adjusts to its new energy source.
Some populations should avoid the keto diet, including:
• people with diabetes who are insulin-dependent
• people who have eating disorders
• those with kidney disease or pancreatitis
• women during pregnancy and breastfeeding
People who take a type of medication called sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors for type 2 diabetes should also not follow a keto diet. This medication increases the risk of diabetic ketoacidosis, a dangerous condition that increases acidity in the blood.
Not for use by individuals under the age of 18. Do not exceed the recommended dosages. Keep out of reach of children. If you are on prescription medication or are being treated for a diagnosed illness or disease, consult with your physician before taking this product or any other dietary supplement.
