Diet Myth #17: KETONE BODY DIET Doesn’t Work!! Also called a Ketogenic diet, it depends on fatty acids being released from the fat to form ketones in the liver.

KETONE BODY DIET Doesn't Work!! Also called a Ketogenic diet, it depends on fatty acids being released from the fat to form ketones in the liver. These ketones are a major energy source during starvation, but their formation is inhibited by just 100 grams of carbohydrate per day. In this diet, you eat only 5% carbohydrates and 75% fat with only 20% protein. It was proposed that the ketones would control hunger, but that is not true. You eat high fat proteins like bacon together with butter and mayonnaise. This diet has been shown to have some effects in epilepsy but this is not true for all patients with this condition. People on the diet can check their urine with a dipstick designed for diabetes which measures ketones. As long as it turns blue, the dieter has not cheated. This self-monitoring may help some people stay on the diet, but this diet has too little protein and will give the breath a fruity smell because the ketones come out of the body in the breath as well as. the urine. There is a better way. Protein shakes, balanced nutrition, and a healthy active lifestyle with daily exercise is a healthy way to lose excess body fat and keep it off for the body you want. #drdavidheber #diet #weightlossjourney #fat #ketosis #ketogenic #ketodiet to learn more go to www.drdavidheber.com and www.herbalifenutritioninstitute.com
