You may have heard of another recent fad diet, the keto fat diet.
What is the keto fat diet?
Athletes, like the cyclists in the Tour de France will sometimes use this type of diet to give them more energy while on their long 200 kilometre daily races but the main goal is not to lose weight; they use is as a source of energy and to maintain a normal weight.
For regular people like you and me, the best kind of Keto diet is the keto diet with protein, a diet with enough protein so that you don’t lose muscle. The keto protein diet also helps keep you fuller for longer so you don’t feel hungry or deprived.
There are numerous clinical studies on the effectiveness of the keto protein diet. The word Keto is short for ketogenic. When you deprive your body of carbohydrates it will automatically go to its fat cells for a source of energy. It’s a very natural adaptation of the body as it naturally curbs your appetite, gives you a great feeling of well-being and also has a fast weight loss, which is very motivating so you’re more likely to stick with it.
With the keto fat diet we have seen many clients who have tried it but say they found that they didn’t lose any weight which is not a surprise as it contains a lot of fat and calories. Also many encountered other serious side-effects such as raised cholesterol levels and also some immune dysfunction. So, the keto fat diet is not recommended.
If you are looking for successful healthy weight loss without any side-effects the keto diet with protein is highly recommended as it curbs the appetite, makes you feel full all the time, gives you a feeling of well-being and best of all, it gives you fast weight loss which is very motivating so you are more likely to stay on it for a longer period.
