The Ketogenic diet is one of the more popular diets around, encouraging dieters to consume fat for fuel and avoid carbohydrates.
The goal of the Ketogenic diet is to get the body to a state of Ketosis, at which time the body burns fat for fuel instead of Glycogen (a form of sugar that can be easily stored by our muscles and liver. It is the predominant storage form of glucose and carbohydrates in animals and humans).
The options on the Ketogenic diet are somewhat limited, especially when it comes to incorporating fruits and vegetables. Really, the Ketogenic diet does not necessarily distinguish between the carbs in a piece of bread vs. a piece of broccoli, although the latter is usually encouraged. The amount of foods rich in any sort of carbohydrates is discouraged, which necessarily means a reduction in certain nutrient-rich foods.
"EATS for LIFE's" GOAL (Eliminate Processed Sugars & Grains):
The goal is to eliminate pathogenic fungi and reduce exposure to poisonous mycotoxins. The net result, however, of both diets often includes weight loss and relief from other health problems. Even so, on my List of Acceptable Foods, you are not only eliminating foods that promote fungal grown in your gut but you are eating foods that help replenish your body in order to begin the process of healing through the absence of inflammation caused by sugars and grains.
So remember to "Eat for Life" and be blessed.
