Keto Diet and Weight Loss

Why the Keto diet for weight loss works

The ketogenic diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet and substantially different from diets such as Paleo, South Beach, and Atkins that are significantly higher in protein. Google Trends reveals that Keto is much more popular across Europe and currently especially sought after in North Western Europe.

On this page you can read more about the origin of the ketogenic diet and how the Keto diet works within the body. But what about the details on how keto leads to weight loss: eating more fat to lose weight sounds contradictive right…

So where does the keto diet weight loss success exactly comes from? And how does its popularity impact the demands within the diet industry?

Science and Market

Keto diet weight loss happens as follows: when reducing the carbohydrate intake to around 30 grams per day, the body first starts to pull stored glucose (glycogen) from the liver and muscles to release glucose for energy. As a result, the levels of the hormones insulin and ghrelin go down. A reduction in ghrelin is linked to an increase of hormones called leptin and cholecystokinin (CCK) that regulate hunger and appetite. Lower levels of insulin and ghrelin lead to promotion of fat loss while at the same time spare muscle mass.

Once glycogen levels have been depleted, the body starts to burn stored body fat and releases ketones as a by-product for energy. In other words: a shift in the body takes place from a carbohydrate fueled metabolism to one fueled by fat.

It seems like the era of crash diets is over

We are moving to a new way of eating and with that also to a new way of losing weight. A more sustainable way that fuels our bodies with real food while achieving the weight and fat loss goals we want. The ketogenic diet is still new for many people, but it is creating a buzz around Europe and is now on its way to become mainstream. A quick web search on keto & weight loss will reveal many keto diet weight loss results of individuals that have burned the fat successfully and are in the best shape of their lives.
