How would you feel if I told you that you can eat all the sisig you want? There’s one catch though – no rice.
Admittedly, that was a badly broken down version of the ketogenic diet. The ketogenic diet aims to use your fat as an energy source so it doesn’t have to store them for you to be sad over. As the body relies on glucose and insulin from carbs for energy, reducing your intake of these carbohydrates will force your body to use your fats instead. This is a state called ketosis.
Before proceeding with the keto diet
While this may seem tempting, always consult a doctor/a licensed nutritionist before undergoing this process, or any diet for that matter. It is very important to know how you’re body is doing now and if it’s capable to adapt into the ketosis state. Do not haphazardly go into a diet without proper research and a good consultation with a good doctor.
