Alimentation cétogène

The ketogenic diet is a high fat, medium protein, low carbohydrate diet that has been proven to result in more effective weight loss and improved metabolic state and brain function. On a ketogenic diet, your entire body switches its fuel supply to run mostly on fat instead of carbohydrates, burning fat 24-7. Usually, the carbohydrates contained in food are transformed into glucose that is then transported around the body and is particularly important in fueling brain function. However, when carbs intake is decreased, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. The ketone bodies transported into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source. With low insulin levels and an increased level of ketone bodies in the blood, your body enters into a state known as ketosis, leading to number of benefits such as weight loss, less hunger and steady supply of energy.
