Often, you need to look past the initial benefit of any wellness strategy and a ketogenic diet is the epitome of this. 

People usually equate keto diets with weight loss, but they fail to realize…

They’re not actually talking about losing weight, are they?

They’re really talking about losing fat.

Their gender, age, and personality do not matter. What most people on a keto diet look for is fat loss. 

But we’re going to prove to you that a ketogenic diet is much more than just a weight-loss diet. 

Starting with this…

 

A Ketogenic Diet Will Optimize Your Body Composition

Usually when staying on a typical weight-loss diet for some time, you notice a few things.

First, you start to lose muscle. Then, you start to see yourself age in appearance. 

Out of every weight-loss diet out there, why choose keto? 

It’s because a ketogenic diet is designed to help you lose fat mass WHILE allowing you to maintain or even gain muscle mass. 

And it’s also there to help you improve your body composition as you get older. 

 

A Ketogenic Diet Will Improve Cognition Even as You Age

What does that mean? 

It means that as you get older, your brain tends to stop being able to use carbohydrates and glucose well.

This is due to insulin resistance which is a natural occurrence.

However, what a ketogenic diet produces is ketones, which can replace glucose in your brain.

Ketones can be utilized as an alternative source of fuel for the brain other than glucose and carbohydrates!

As a result, there have been multiple studies looking at Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and traumatic brain energy, as well as many more neurodegenerative conditions and their relation to ketogenic diets.

 

Anti-inflammatory Benefits of A Ketogenic Diet

Ketogenic diets do more than only help alleviate skin inflammation. Ketones act on something known as the NLRP3 Inflammasome, turning it off.

What does that mean?

It means that ketones are inherently anti-inflammatory.

People on a ketogenic diet tend to feel less inflammation in general. Whether it’s their stomach, knees, skin, or joints.

 

Ketosis Boosts Longevity

Who doesn’t want to live forever?

Don’t worry, ketogenic diets will NOT give you immortality. 

But scientists conducted research that had different animals undergo a ketogenic diet and compared them to those who didn’t. 

What do you think they noticed? 

They found that those on a ketogenic diet tend to live longer and have better overall health profiles than if they were on a Standard American Diet.

 

So let’s recap: 

Ketosis has profound effects on:

  • Weight loss, fat loss, and body composition
  • The brain and whole-body physiology
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Longevity.

 

So next time someone tells you that a keto diet is only good if you’re trying to lose weight, tell him that it’s much more than that! 

We’re looking forward to seeing you the next time you have any keto-related questions!
