Following a keto diet can bring you many great health benefits with more and more supporting research emerging. Here are some that we love!
With most diets you will hit a point where you are either hangry, low in energy or feel a crash. Being hungry is one of the top reasons people eventually give up on their diets. When you switch to a low carb way of eating you stay full on god fats, your appetite is literally shrinking therefore you don’t feel hungry.
Ditch the carbs and sugar and watch the fat melt off you. By cutting the carbs your body will no longer rely on glucose for energy your body will start to burn its fat for fuel. You will naturally start to eat fewer calories almost effortlessly.
Yes, you read right. Although we have been taught our whole lives that fat is bad and we should be eating a low fat diet is so far from the truth.
High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is often called the “good” cholesterol.
It’s actually wrong to call it “cholesterol”… all cholesterol molecules are the same.
HDL and LDL refer to the lipoproteins that carry cholesterol around in the blood.
Whereas LDL carries cholesterol from the liver and to the rest of the body, HDL carries cholesterol away from the body and to the liver, where it can be reused or excreted.
It is well known that the higher your levels of HDL, the lower your risk of heart disease will be.
One of the best ways to increase HDL levels is to eat fat.. and low-carb diets include a lot of healthy fats.
