New to Keto? Here’s an intro

If you are new to the Keto Diet here’s an explanation of how it works and some of the benefits. 

The ketogenic diet, commonly known as the "keto" diet, is a low-carb, high-fat diet that has been shown to have a variety of health benefits. The goal of the diet is to put your body into a state of "ketosis," where it is burning fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates.

One of the main benefits of the keto diet is weight loss. By drastically reducing your intake of carbohydrates, your body is forced to burn fat for energy. This can lead to rapid weight loss, especially in the first few weeks of the diet. Additionally, because the diet is high in fat, you will feel full and satisfied, which can help you stick to the diet in the long term.

Another potential benefit of the keto diet is its impact on blood sugar levels. By reducing your intake of carbohydrates, your body will produce less insulin, which can lead to lower blood sugar levels. This is particularly beneficial for people with diabetes or prediabetes, as it can help them better manage their condition.

The keto diet has also been shown to improve brain function. By providing your brain with an alternative source of fuel (ketones), it may be able to function more efficiently. This can lead to improved focus, concentration, and even a reduction in symptoms of certain neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's disease.

The keto diet may also have anti-inflammatory effects, which can be beneficial for those with autoimmune disorders or chronic inflammation. Additionally, the keto diet may improve cardiovascular health by reducing the risk of heart disease.

Always take advice from a health professional before starting any type of diet. It should also be noted that the keto diet may have side effects such as the "keto flu" and constipation so it’s important to keep your fibre levels up, our Easy Wraps are a great source of fibre!
