What Is Keto?
A low-carb lifestyle that triggers the body to burn fat (not carbs) for fuel
Keto is short for ketogenic, which is an adjective usually used to describe a diet that is extremely low in carbohydrates (think rice, bread, potatoes, and many processed snacks) and high in healthy fats. The purpose of eating this way is to trigger ketosis, the state in which your body will start burning mainly fat (instead of carbs) for fuel.
What Are The Benefits Of A Keto/Low-Carb Meal Plan?
Positive effects on fat burning and some health conditions
One benefit of a keto or low-carb meal plan is that your body will learn to burn fat for energy. A moderate- to high-carb diet provides the body with plenty of energy to burn, but can also cause blood sugar (insulin levels) to spike. A low-carb meal plan will replace most carbs with fat and protein, giving your body energy while regulating insulin levels. For individuals with certain conditions, this can reduce symptoms and improve quality of life. Many anecdotal accounts exist of people who have experienced positive outcomes from the keto diet in the absence of an underlying condition.
Who Should Try The Keto Diet?
Anyone can, but scientific research gives specifics.
The keto diet has shown positive outcomes for many groups, and new studies are being carried out regularly. The best approach to trying the keto diet is to educate yourself, listen to your body, and adjust accordingly. Certain people may especially benefit from a keto or low-carb meal plan, including:
- Those trying to lose weight (limited short-term studies)
- Children with epilepsy (clinically proven results)
- Adults with epilepsy (support from scientific studies)
- People with type 2 diabetes (published research)
- Those with certain health conditions (research underway)*
*More research is needed to confirm the benefits of the ketogenic diet regarding bipolar disorder, obesity, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, PCOS, Parkinson’s disease, and certain cancers.
Are There Downsides To A Keto Diet?
Some people may not respond well to this eating style.
While the keto diet may help you lose weight faster than compared to diets with more carbs, it’s not for everyone. The low limit on carbs is quite restrictive, especially for individuals who are used to eating moderate- to high-carb diets. Some challenges to the keto diet may include:
- “Keto flu,” a collection of symptoms that can appear early in the diet
- Frustration while adapting to the restrictive lifestyle
- Challenges in learning keto-safe grocery shopping and meal preparation
- Increased time spent verifying ingredients for “keto-friendliness”
- Difficulty eating at social gatherings, events, and restaurants
