Keto Dieting

Can the Keto Dieting Improve Your Health?

When it comes to losing weight and achieving long term success, you need to focus on healthy eating. The Keto Dieting is all the rage right now with stories of people from celebrities to ordinary people dropping excess pounds while improving their overall health with the low carb diet. But is it just a fad or can this way of eating really improve your health?

The diet eliminates most carbohydrates and instead focuses on healthy fats and proteins. The goal is to put your body into a state of ketosis, a natural metabolic process where the body begins to use fat for energy. This can result in rapid weight loss, but is not a good option for everyone and can cause health issues in certain groups.

In some cases the ketogenic diet may cause flu-like symptoms such as upset stomach, headache, dizziness and fatigue – known as “keto flu.” It can also change your water and mineral balance and result in constipation. For this reason, it’s important to talk to your doctor about the diet before trying.

Luckily, the Keto diet is not as restrictive as many people think. There are plenty of foods to enjoy, such as fatty fish, lean meats, eggs and dairy products like cheese and yogurt. Just be sure to avoid processed foods, sugary fruits and starchy vegetables such as corn, potatoes and sweet potatoes, which are high in carbohydrates. Choose non-starchy vegetables like leafy greens, asparagus and tomatoes which are rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C.
