A high-fat, low-carb approach to weight loss

 

Our Smart Keto plan includes an impressive list of proven health benefits.  It's been used for centuries to help manage medical conditions, like diabetes and epilepsy, although today the diet is recommended for healthy weight loss.

The ketogenic diet involves eating very low amounts of carbohydrates, moderate levels of protein, and very high amounts of fat.  This reduction in dietary carbohydrates and increase in dietary fat transitions your body into a metabolic state known as "ketosis."  When in ketosis, your body burns fat- both dietary and stored - as the primary fuel, instead of carbohydrates.  Breaking down fat is beneficial for weight loss not only because it helps burn stored fat, but also because it produces ketones.  Ketones are high-energy molecules that can be used as an alternative fuel for your brain and organs when carbohydrates are in short supply.

Benefits include:

1. Highly effective for weight loss
2. Increased mental focus
3. Reduced risk of type 2 diabetes
4. Reduced risk factors for heart disease
