Are you the type of athlete who just can’t keep away from carbs? Is your sweet tooth always aching for a sugary treat? Well, I feel you, brothers and sisters! There’s nothing like a pink glazed doughnut or a chewy, chocolate chip cookie dipped in creamy chocolate fondue as an after-work treat during a very busy week.
Oops, sorry! Did I just make your mouth water?
Okay. So that was really cruel of me. I’m a follower of this diet myself so you can just imagine what torture it is for me to be typing that intro. I haven’t held a cookie (the kind grandma makes) in my hand since forever. After all, I purposely try to remove myself from these sinful pleasures. I admit I cheat every once in a while but I get a bite, at most. I’m telling you; not being able to eat your favorite things is one of the worst feelings ever.

For thousands of North Americans, the keto diet has proved to be one of the fastest and most effective ways to lose weight and develop a healthier lifestyle.
By focussing on dramatically reducing carbs, the keto diet puts the body into a state called ketosis, in which its primary source of fuel becomes fat rather than carbohydrates and sugars. This, in turn, leads to rapid but healthy weight loss, and many keto eaters also claim to have more energy and a greater ability to focus.
Eating keto is all about finding good, healthy sources of fat, however, and for people just starting this diet for the first time, this can be a bit of a challenge. The North American diet tends to be very carb heavy, and while increasing fat intake may sound easy, in practice it takes a lot of careful calculation.

First of all, what is Ketosis?
Well, this is usually a natural state of the metabolic process. The human body starts burning stored fat when it reaches ketosis instead of glucose. When the body begins to break fat down, ketones build up in the blood system.
When this happens, ketones start exiting the body through the urine. A person enters ketosis when there is presence of ketones both in the blood and the urine.There are many benefits to ketosis as it helps a person to lose the extra (or unwanted) fat they have in their body.
This is because the body begins the breakdown process of fats rather than depending on carbohydrates for energy. There has been a research study that suggested ketosis helps with reducing the appetite and in the long run can promote weight loss.
When it comes to achieving a state of ketosis, it is safe to say that it’s not easy. Due to this, lots of people aspiring to get to the point of ketosis usually go on a diet known as a ketogenic diet.
We want to let you know of five ways you can promote your ketosis and make it work faster while remaining healthy and safe.

Metabolism is a word that describes any and all chemical reactions that occur within the body. The rate at which metabolism occurs in your body may vary depending on a lot of things.
