Keto Diet Basics:

The keto diet is not a new phenomenon. The diet first appeared in medical literature as early as 1920 and has grown popularity in recent years in response to the low-fat diet craze. 

A lot of people have jumped on the keto bandwagon and there has been a lot of hype as a result. But what are the basic principles of the keto diet?

The keto diet is based on a theory of why we get fat. The over-consumption of carbohydrates and simple sugars leads to weight gain. The way your body processes the carbohydrates you eat have more to do with your waistline than the amount of fat or calories that you consume. Some people suffer from insulin resistance. The thought is that many overweight people have cells that do not work correctly.

When you eat excess carbohydrates and sugar, your body notices that sugar levels are elevated. Insulin is released from the pancreas in order to store sugar as glycogen in the liver and muscle cells for extra energy later on. However, your body can only store so much glycogen at once. As soon as your body reaches its limit for glycogen storage, the excess carbohydrates are stored as fat. This happens to everyone who eats too many carbohydrates.

However, insulin-resistant individuals have an even harder time of using and storing excess carbohydrates. The more insulin that your body is exposed to, the more resistant it becomes.

Over time, the pancreas releases more insulin and cells become insulin resistant. The cells are trying to protect themselves from the toxic effects of high insulin. They create less glycogen and more fat.

As a result, insulin-resistant individuals gain extra weight.

The carbohydrates get converted into fat instead of energy.

Other side effects include fatigue, brain fog (the inability to focus, poor memory, loss of creativity), low blood sugar (which can lead to hypoglycemia), intestinal bloating, sleepiness, depression and increased blood sugar.

There is much more than weight at stake when you are insulin resistant.

The remedy for people who are insulin resistant is a diet restricted in carbohydrates.

The crux of the keto diet is a limitation of carbohydrates in all of its forms. The foods restricted on the keto plan include simple sugars (like cookies, sodas, and sweets) and complex carbohydrates (like bread, rice, and grains).

Even carbohydrates that are considered healthy, such as oatmeal, brown rice, and whole-wheat bread, are restricted on this diet.

Keto has you restrict your carbohydrate intake to less than 50 grams a day (though most people stay around 25g or less). This will put your body in a state of ketosis. While in ketosis, your body will burn fat as fuel.

According to research, the ketosis state will also affect insulin production and it will prevent more fat from being formed. Your body will begin using your stored fat as an efficient form of fuel, and you’ll lose weight.

Another benefit of the keto plan is that ketosis help with your cravings for carbohydrates.

If you’ve been living on a carb-heavy diet, you may have found that you simply cannot get enough carbohydrates.

With carbohydrate restriction and ketosis comes a reduction in carbohydrate cravings. People who have been on the keto diet for some time report that they do not crave carbohydrates as they once did.

Although the initial phases of the keto diet are rather tough, the program teaches you to restore balance to your diet in the long run. People who use the diet slowly reintroduce minimal amounts of carbohydrate into their eating until they find a comfortable balance between their health and carbohydrate use.

The basic principles of the keto diet have been adapted to many other low-carb diet plans.

However, keto popularity still remains as strong as one of the most effective low-carbohydrate solutions for those who are insulin resistant.
