A new year is a time when we sit back and reflect on what we did last year, where we are in the current moment, and how we want to improve in the coming year. Many of these improvements revolve around fitness and diet.
One of the most popular diets right now is the keto diet. This diet is all about cutting carbs and increasing fat in your diet to help you lose weight and improve your overall health.
Are you considering going keto? Here are six reasons why you should consider going keto this year.
Some other diets will ultimately result in the loss of both fat and muscle, thus lowering your overall weight. However, if done correctly, the keto diet can actually spare muscle! This is because this diet allows you to become fat adapted, which causes the body to choose stored fat as its preferred food source! This will allow you to become leaner compared to other diets!
When we consume carbs, we see spikes and drops in our energy as our bodies use up the carbs. This is one reason for feeling lethargic in the afternoon! When you start the keto diet and become fat adapted, your body can begin to tap into the stored fat as an energy source rather than wait for the next influx of carbs.
Stubborn body fat is so frustrating to have. It seems like nothing you do will allow the fat to go away. Well, going keto has been shown to burn up to ten times more fat than starting other diets! This diet causes the body to gravitate towards stored fat for energy in addition to sparing muscle which increases the calories that we burn while resting! This really helps to drop inches of stubborn body fat!
The keto diet reduces inflammation in a variety of ways. First, by simply removing inflammatory foods such as refined sugars, corn, soy, gluten, and carbs, the body will see less inflammation. And second, using fat as your primary fuel source instead of carbs creates significantly less inflation than burning sugars does!
What’s one of the worst parts of starting a new diet? If you said fighting off cravings, then the keto diet is perfect for you! Because the keto diet is high in fat content, it is very satiating! Additionally, the diet removes “trigger foods” that create cravings causing us to overeat.
Whether it is seeing physical results or just feeling more awake and energized in your day-to-day life, the keto diet will make you feel like yourself again! By focusing on yourself and your well-being, going keto really is the best way to start the new year!
