The Keto Diet – Are You Doing It Right?
All of the rage in the diet world for the past year or so has been the ketogenic diet, aka Keto.
Keto is a diet designed to purposely move your body into what scientists call a state of “ketosis”, which means the body begins to feed on its own fat cells rather than stored glucose.
While many people may think they’re achieving keto success, true practitioners of the diet use tools like breathalyzers and urine testing strips in order to gain physical proof that their body is in ketosis. This direct physical proof of whether or not the diet is working in a person’s body is without a doubt one of its main appeals.
With every good new trend comes bad actors, though, so a consumer needs to be informed when deciding whether or not to buy a product that claims to help enhance a keto diet. You can always refer to reviews in order to see if a keto product is right for you. In the case of one reviews site we found, they aggregated reviews for a product called Keto Fit Pro, and the results were incredible. On another site, we find great evidence that these products are overall unnecessary.
That important part being said, let’s reiterate; it’s important to realize that you can actually achieve ketosis without the use of any third party diet guides or supplements. With just a bit of meal planning and determination (and free guides available online), you’ll be losing tons of weight in no time.
Intake of protein
Another thing to watch out for during the keto diet is the over intake of protein. While many dieters can be seen eating as much protein as possible, they are often actually bulking or trying desperately to hold onto their bodybuilding muscles while cutting off fat rapidly with cardio related exercises.
If you follow these tips and stay mentally strong (no cheat days whatsoever!) during your diet, you can pretty much guarantee success. After all, losing weight with keto is very simple to explain, but much harder to put into action personally.
