The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low carb, adequate protein that has great healing potential to the body. It was originally used in medicine primarily to treat epilepsy children. It is vastly growing in popularity since people are beginning to realize the endless health benefits. The human body has thrived off ketones until recent times with the increase of agriculture and government involvement in food. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted into gluclose which is then transported around the body and provide us with fuel. However, if there is very little carbohydrate in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source. An elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood, a state known as ketosis, leads to overall health & wellbeing on a multitude of levels. This diet can help anyone who looking for fat loss to curing cancer!
