Keto diet – good or bad?
As a weight loss plan
Keto diet has gained its popularity in recent times and a lot of people are using Keto for weight loss. Keto diet, conditions a body to acquire a state of ketosis as a natural form so that it gets use to burning and using fat as body fuel instead of carbohydrates. Keto diet for beginners mostly comprises of meals which have a lowered amount of carbohydrate and higher amount of fat than they generally consume. They can use a cyclic period in which they keep 5 days for keto meals and the rest of the two days they can consume proper amount of carbohydrates.
A typical keto diets food consists of meat, fatty fish, butter and other milk products, eggs, nuts, olives, avocados etc. Beef, bacon, bun-less burgers, cheese omelets are a few keto diet meals that an individual can consume in his/her diet plan.
What’s there to lose apart from weight?
Keto for weight loss sounds like a very user friendly diet plan. I mean, who would refuse cheese, eggs and meat when they come with weight loss. But there is always a hidden reality to such over appealing diet plans. Keto diet alternates the natural body functioning and conditions it to design a new normalcy to trigger weight loss. Change in natural course may result in
- Fatigue sensations
- Excessive hunger & thirst
- Excessive sweating
Apart from this many people often complain of flu-like conditions, also known as Keto-Flu, in which they feel very dull and low. Their stomach feels weak and they may have trouble with sleeping. Nausea and reduced performance efficiency can also be a part of it.
Therefore I suggest a diet plan which can be more realistic and can be followed for a long term. An adequate amount of all nutrients is necessary for the body to function properly and depriving it of one while overdosing it with another might give you a slimmer body but that won’t be a healthy body. If you want a healthy weight loss you should
- Eat a healthy balanced diet containing all the nutrients
- Include exercise in your daily routine
- Practice Yoga and meditation on a regular basis
Practicing these steps rather than Keto Diet Plans will not just give you a healthy but also a more long-lasting result.
