Drop Two Sizes In 4 Months On This Diet

The Ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carb diet that works by causing the liver to produce ketones and use them as energy. Conceived in the 1920's by an endocrinologist named Dr. Geyelin, this diet is back and more popular than ever, especially in Hollywood.

Drop Two Sizes In 4 Months

The purpose of this diet, just like for all other low-carb diets, is to eliminate sugar. When our diet contains a lot of carbohydrates, our body uses sugar to produce energy. However, when there is no sugar at its disposal, the body uses accumulated fat and arrives at the so-called ketosis stage when the body begins to melt fat. So, to lose weight, you must eat healthy fats and proteins and consume fewer carbohydrates. This diet lasts for a week, and can be continued for up to two months, with the consent of your doctor.
