Are you Keto? 🤔 Ketogenic Diets are all the rage at the moment. Check out this helpful except by Gymshark and EHP Labs athlete Zac Perna 🔥 on what exactly a Ketogenic Diet is:
A Ketogenic Diet involves minimizing carbohydrates as much as possible, increasing dietary fat intake, and keeping protein at a moderate level to achieve a desired state in the body known as ‘Ketosis’.
When in ketosis, the body produces chemicals called ketones as a byproduct of burning fat that act as a new fuel source for the brain. The purpose of entering ketosis is to then switch the body’s preferred fuel source from carbs to fat.
To become Keto Adapted, generally you will need to be in ketosis for at least two weeks. Signs of enhanced mental clarity, improved satiety and an increase in energy will demonstrate the body efficiently switching its preferential energy source to fat and BOOM; you are now a successful Ketogenic Dieter.
The modern day Ketogenic Diet for athletes involves a specific macronutrient breakdown.
You should consume 20-25% of your total calories from protein, 70-75% of your total calories from fat and approximately 5% of your total calories from ‘Net’ carbohydrates.
Application For Fat Loss 😃
Let's say a person holds 15kg of fat (arbitrarily speaking), each gram of fat has 9 calories, therefore, this person holds 135,000 calories of unused energy.
The purpose of keto is to enable you to tap in to this abundance of stored calories!
You must ensure that you are eating at a calorie deficit to begin with, otherwise there will be no energy imbalance to burn your own body fat.
A keto diet offers other invaluable benefits, such as:
✔️ Improved satiety, increased feeling of fullness.
✔️ Improved energy levels.
✔️ The ability to use intermittent fasting principles with a ketogenic diet, to further speed up fat loss due to decreased food cravings.
