The Keto Diet method is used to lose excess weight, ie a high fat but low starch diet. The question is, is this method useful?
Weight loss will be followed by fatigue and constant tiredness. At the time, ketogenic foods were a way to control seizures in epilepsy patients. Weight loss will be followed by dieting in the 1970s.
It is a fact that even today it is popular to lose weight with the Keto diet, but there are also concerns about it. New York City-based dietitian and nutritionist Sarah Hamdan said she never recommends ketogenic foods because they have long-lasting negative effects on the body. She does not consider the health risks of ketogenic diet foods useful. Keto foods can affect the liver as well as the kidneys, She says.
According to Sarah, she believes that long-term effective and safe ways to lose weight are better for human health. Physicians say that quick weight loss can have negative effects on certain parts of the human body.
Ketogenic food refers to foods that are low in carbohydrates, a group of biochemicals that contain a large group of fortifying organic compounds, including glucose and starch, and high in fat. The human body produces energy from sugar or glucose. That’s why many athletes or men and women who want to lose weight prefer to go on an empty stomach or hungry after exercise. In this case, the body gets energy by using internal fat.
Doing this continuously becomes accustomed to the use of ketosis in the human body and this change is called ketosis. This means that the human body is now dependent on the fat found in the human body, ie the body gets its energy from fat and not from sugar. The process of ketosis begins in two to four days.
A ketogenic diet also means limiting the amount of carbohydrates in the body to only 50 grams. Fifty grams provides only ten calories to the body and the remaining ninety per cent of the calories should be obtained from protein and fat.
On the other hand, nutritionists believe that it is healthy for young people to absorb 200 to 300 grams of carbohydrates. There are so many carbohydrates in a banana and a cup of boiled rice. This is equivalent to forty-five to sixty per cent of the calories in the human body. Too many carbohydrates can lead to obesity and stop the burning of ketones already present in the body’s internal tissues.
It is true that ketogenic diet foods help in weight loss and lower blood sugar levels. In this context, it is also useful for diabetics. The transition from sugar to fat for energy also causes a condition called flu. Headaches, nausea and fatigue are also felt during this time. Cato flu is not harmful and the body improves in two to three weeks.
Constipation appears to be another side effect. Some medical research has shown that ketogenic diets can also cause high blood cholesterol.
It also increases the risk of inflammation in the body. According to Sarah Hamdan, increased risk of inflammation can lead to heart disease. According to her, skipping such a diet can lead to diabetes as well as obesity. Research is currently underway on the benefits of ketogenic diets in the treatment of kidney disorders.
