Health benefits of a ketogenic diet
The Ketogenic Diet is an ancestral appropriate diet our DNA knows exactly what to do with. Our DNA doesn’t like when we eat a calorie restricted, it doesn’t like when we eat high carb and lots of whole grains. But our DNA loves when we eat the ketogenic way and that gives you many benefits in your life. Now let’s talk about eleven ways the ketogenic diet can change your life.
Ketogenic diet lowers your blood pressure
Number one and one of the most important things for many people is that the ketogenic way of eating helps to lower your blood pressure. So if you have elevated blood pressure or even if you have hypertension, so many people when eat keto noticed that their blood pressure comes down.
The ketogenic diet slows down the aging process
Aging is a very complicated thing and there are many variables. The best analogy some say ever about aging is that aging is like driving a car with only an accelerator, there’s no brake pedal.
And so the only thing you can do is you can speed up the aging process by doing dumb things, by eating dumb things, by drinking dumb things. What the ketogenic way of eating does it brings your foot up off the accelerator.
You will get older, we all do. There’s nothing we can do about that. But you sure don’t want to be speeding up the process, right?
You may have heard about the experiments where mice, rats, worms, all kinds of species have doubled and tripled their lifespan.
We can’t lock humans in the room and cut their caloric intake, right? Because that’s considered torture and kidnapping and other felonies, but we can do that with animals and every animal species we’ve tried this with lives longer.
They live up to 100% longer. So the ketogenic diet naturally makes you have a time restricted feeding window because you’re satiated with fat.
The ketogenic way of eating improves joint pain and inflammation
It is hard to estimate how many people have been able to come off their daily anti-inflammatory treatment. There were even patients on the surgery list to have their neighbor placed and once they have been eating keto for a few months they could call surgery and say: “yeah, you know what, take me off the schedule, I’ll call you when I need you”.
Ketogenic diet improves the immune system and decreases the severity
The ketogenic way of eating decreases the frequency of contracting autoimmune conditions and it also decreases the severity if you already have one.
Think about autoimmune diseases, they comprise three things. You may have a genetic predisposition, but you also may have chronic inflammation in your body and that increases the odds and then you’re eating crap food and all those things together lead to an autoimmune condition.
So if you would like to increase your odds of never getting one, or if you already have one and you like to decrease the severity of flare-ups and the frequency of flare-ups you’re highly recommended a ketogenic way of eating.
The ketogenic diet improves your mood
Numerous patients decreased or stopped their anti-depression medication. There are many patients who came off their anti-anxiety medication. Even patients who’ve been formally and rigorously diagnosed with bipolar disorder could decrease or stop their medications and cure all three conditions just by getting the inflammatory standard diet out of their mouths.
So the ketogenic diet is powerful for improving and stabilizing the mood.
Keto diet improves heartburn
You probably know someone who once got on the keto way of eating lost weight, and also their heartburn got better and they stopped taking Nexium, Prilosec, Protonix, Zantac, Pepcid.
Ketogenic diet definitely helps with heartburn and GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease).
The ketogenic diet is the best diet for curing fatty liver disease
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease or non-alcoholic fatty steatohepatitis, all these get better on the ketogenic diet.
Many patients who had fatty liver and kind of that bloated potbelly of fatty liver, a year later they repeat the ultrasound after they’ve been keto for most of the year and the fat was gone.
There’s something even worse than fatty liver and that’s fatty pancreas. Fatty pancreas leads to so many chronic diseases, it can even lead to liver failure and type 2 diabetes. So if you’re getting a fatty liver you want to cure that, that’s not optional.
The ketogenic way of eating optimizes your hormones
It has been noticed that many people don’t need hormone optimizations anymore once they start eating a ketogenic diet. It has been also multiple times seeing that a man’s testosterone goes up to 400 and even more just by changing the diet. Keto regimen can optimize all your hormones, not just your sex hormones.
Keto way of eating controls your appetite
How many times have you been on a calorie-restricted diet, like weight watchers or slim-fast, they’re all calorie restriction diets, but they don’t give you enough fat and that’s why you’re chronically hungry and you’re chronically lowering your metabolic rate.
And so you’ll lose 5-20 pounds but it stops and then as soon as you stop the diet because you’re hungry and miserable, then all the weight comes back, plus 5 pounds.
The ketogenic way of eating is not like that. You get to eat lots of healthy fats and the fat naturally tweaks your hunger hormones: leptin and ghrelin, and you’re just not hungry.
That’s why so many people on the ketogenic way of eating, effortlessly slip into time-restricted feeding or intermittent fasting because they’re just not hungry.
So if you’re sick and tired and starving to death trying to lose weight you should try the ketogenic way of eating and you’ll be excited about that.
The ketogenic diet improves acne
Teenagers with severe acne who committed to eating a ketogenic way greatly improved it.
We are talking about the cystic pustular scarring acne, as well as just blackheads and whiteheads, it all gets better because acne comes from 2 things: it comes from hormones and it comes from inflammation. And when the ketogenic diet optimizes your hormones and inflammation the acne just effortlessly goes away without any expensive creams, lotions, pills, injections.
So that’s powerful for people with acne.
Keto diet is the best diet for weight loss
