People are constantly trying to figure out how they can efficiently get rid of fat. Short of selling their souls, people go to great lengths for fat loss. What if you could train your body to burn fat for energy instead of glucose? Well, this is possible and it is known as ketosis.
When the Dherbs team went to the 2017 LA FitExpo, we were able to talk about ketosis with the people at KETO OS. While this company makes supplements that can help your body get into the state of ketosis, you can train your body to enter into this fat-burning state. You can do this by eating a ketogenic diet.
The most important thing about a ketogenic diet is that you have to almost entirely eliminate carbs. The reason for this is because the body burns carbs so quickly and you only crave more after you finish eating them. Carbs give you an instant energy burst that is short lived, and then your body crashes and needs more fuel. Watch this short video below to better understand how ketosis works.
Transitioning the body into ketosis can be a challenge. The best foods to eat are rich in omega-3 and omega-9 fatty acids. These foods include fresh fruits and vegetables like avocados, olive oil, coconut oil, sprouted nuts and seeds, and many more. Except for the sugar from whole fruits and vegetables, you won’t be putting any refined or added sugars into your body. This forces the body to burn protein, which in turn starts the fat-burning process.
When you burn fat your body can actually run more efficiently, and you’ll lose weight more quickly too! You’ll feel more energized, focused, and livelier than ever before. Make sure to exercise regularly to help yourself on your journey into ketosis. It takes work and determination, but you can definitely get there.
