In today’s video, I’m going to share with you the benefits of a ketogenic diet. Ketogenic diets can actually help weight loss, cancer, and even Alzheimer’s disease. When you are on a ketogenic diet, you are putting your body into a state of ketosis, which means your body is burning fat for energy rather than carbohydrates. The ketogenic diet could be the best diet for fat loss, however I don’t believe anyone should be on this diet for more than 3-6 months. The reason why this diet works so effectively is your body stops feeding on sugar and starts burning fat. The diet consists of about 80% fats, 10% carbohydrates, and 10% protein.

The ketogenic for cancer: The cancer cells have no sugar to feed off of, so they get starved to death. This is why the ketogenic diet is great for cancer patients.

The ketogenic for weight loss: Your body starts burning it’s own fat for energy 24/7 which shaves off fat more rapidly than other diets.

The ketogenic diet for Alzheimer’s disease: You need to support the brain nerve system with healthy fats. Your body in a state ketosis is critical for the brain and the natural treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.

While on the ketogenic diet, you want three types of healthy fats: healthy saturated fats, omega 3 fatty acids, and omega 9 fats.
