It’s pretty well-known information that the common ‘’eat less, move more’’ tip to lose weight isn’t working for most people. In fact, more than 75% of people who lose weight do not only gain it back, they will often add a few more pounds. So, can there be a real solution for this problem that doesn’t involve expensive shakes and pills? There might be. More and more people are hearing a word that is very closely linked to weight loss: Ketosis, Ketogenic or Keto. Ketogenic is a low-carb, diet that works because it helps suppress your appetite and cravings. How does Ketogenic Diet Work Fast? Ketosis is a process that the body does on an everyday basis, regardless of the number of carbs you eat. When you eat foods high in carbs or excess amounts of protein, your body will break this down into sugar, known as glucose. Glucose is needed for the creation of ATP (an energy molecule), which is a fuel that is needed for the daily activities and maintenance of our bodies. This is a normal and healthy chemical reaction of the body. Our bodies use up much of the nutrients we intake just to maintain itself on a daily basis. If you eat enough food, there will likely be an excess of glucose that your body doesn’t need. What happens with this glucose? There are two things: Glycogenesis: Excess glucose will be converted into a different chemical, glycogen, and stored in your liver and muscles. Estimates show that only about half of your daily energy can be stored as glycogen, so what happens with the glycogen that can’t be stored in your liver and muscles? Lipogenesis: If there’s already enough glycogen in your muscles and liver, any extra glucose will be converted into fats and stored. So what happens when you stop eating foods high in carbs and excess protein and your body doesn’t get that glucose? Ketosis. When your body has no access to food, like when you are sleeping or when you are on a ketogenic diet, the body will burn fat and create molecules called ketones. That’s because our bodies are able to switch metabolic pathways. And this is known as Ketosis Weight loss Rate or Success. How long does it take to lose weight in keto diet? Ketogenic low-carb diets are incredibly helpful with suppressing appetite. The keto diet helps to alter the concentrations of hormones and nutrients that affect hunger. This means you can learn to listen to your body’s true hunger signals instead of cravings for sugar. Ketosis can help to maximize weight loss by regulating hormones that affect weight gain. After you eat, the hormone cholecystokinin (CCK for short) is released by your body. CCK is responsible for stimulating fat and protein digestion, so staying true to a keto diet will help you to release that hormone sooner. And last but not least, a keto diet can help you increase the amount of fat burned by your body. When you eat low-carb and your body starts burning fat as its primary source of fuel (instead of glucose), you’re essentially in a fasting state where your body is using your fat stores directly for energy. This can help you with maximize weight loss stalls or get rid of unwanted fat. Here’s the list of food that can help you stick to the Ketogenic Diet and lose weight fast: – 1. Salmon 2. Macadamia Nuts 3. Eggs 4. Coconut Oil 5. Green Tea 6. Avocado 7. Aged Cheese Planning to practice the Ketogenic Diet? Don’t forget to checkout these tips/precautions before you actually engage yourself in the Keto Diet :- 1. Add more fiber to your diet 2. Consume variety of animal fats (olive oil, fatty fish, nuts, seeds) as well as plant-based sources. 3. The keto diet is associated with low-to-moderate amounts of protein, so eating too much protein could disrupt your diet 4. Ketosis way of eating demands long-term commitment, so make sure that you’re ready to stick with it. 5. Stick to the ratios – 70% fats, 20-25% protein and 5-10% carbohydrates. With all these ketogenic diet details, tips and food ideas you can surely have a well directed plan to lose weight fast in 1 month. GOOD LUCK! ...

Summer is upon us and with it, our desire to be beach-ready. That will have many of us reaching for the juicer and going through a course of “detoxicating”. After all, isn’t our normal diet full of toxins? It only makes sense that we clean our body and, hopefully, lose weight along the way. We will be healthy and fit. Right? Not really. True, that is what many companies would have you believe because “healthy detox” programs are all the rage and they don’t show any sign of slowing down (not to mention that it’s good for their pocket). However, over the past few years, scientists have debunked “the myth of the detox” and according to the American Journal of Medicine there is “no strong scientific evidence to support these benefits”. Our body is quite amazing and in fact we already have an effective detoxicating system in place – our kidneys and liver. If they function properly, we don’t need to worry about any other type of cleansing. So what about all those juices? They seem to be promoted everywhere, and ultimately, is it better to drink vegetables rather than to eat them? Drinking vegetable juices can help you increase your veggie intake, along with the vitamins and minerals that accompany them (especially if you are one of the many people who do not eat enough leafy greens in their regular diet). However, it’s important to remember one thing: when you make a juice, you remove most of the fiber. We have discussed previously why fiber is an important ingredient for weight loss but it also has many other health benefits. Fiber is the carbohydrate that helps you control the levels of blood sugar in your system. It slows down the rate of the food digestion and consequentially, balances how fast sugar gets into your bloodstream. This also controls hunger which means that if you ingest enough fiber, you would feel full for a longer period of time. That said, a fresh vegetable juice will have sugar but no fiber which will cause your body to experience a blood sugar spike. This can lead to many negative effects such as insulin imbalance, skin outbreaks (in people who have acne-prone skin) and many more. What can you do? Simply substitute the juice for a fresh vegetable. That way you will receive all the nutrients without any of the fuss. Tips & Tricks If you have your heart set on drinking vegetable juices, consider the following healthy tips: – Add a little whole milk to the juice – to slow down the release of sugar, so that there are no sugar spikes; – Drink such juices twice a week – to avoid any lasting harmful effects; – Drink such juices 20 min before or 2 hours after meals – to help your digestive system process them. So are vegetable juices good or bad for you? If you are a healthy person, there won’t be any harmful effects (considering you drink them in moderation) but it would still be more beneficial if you just eat your veggies. They are delicious! How about you create your own glass of juice with your favorite veggies? Checkout the first ever Juice Maker which makes it easy to get choose your veggies, blend them into a juice and log it into a diary.

How do you take apple cider vinegar to lose weight? Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is cherished by many as a therapeutic, healthy and inexpensive measure against many body ailments. We can’t stress enough on there being no magic bullet for weight loss, ACV is no exception. Chugging on ACV every day without a healthy diet plan and plenty of exercise is not going to give you any results, in fact, it may even be harmful as ACV is acidic and can contribute to digestive issues. Always consume ACV in small amounts, say a teaspoon or two, preferably diluted. ACV is gaining popularity in the fitness world as many kinds of research, as well as at-home experiences, show that adding ACV to your regular routine may aid in weight loss. Here are some factors that contribute to its weight-loss benefits: 1. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) suppresses your appetite Having a glass of water with a teaspoon of ACV before your meal can help you reach satiety sooner and consume less than you usually do. According to one study, participants who ate bread with vinegar experienced a greater level of satiety than those who only ate bread. 2. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) stabilizes your blood sugar levels The dramatic sugar spikes that occur in your body following a meal are the main cause of those nasty uncontrollable cravings you have throughout the day. ACV helps control these sugar spikes, thereby, curbing your sugar cravings between meals. Stabilizing your blood sugar levels is a surefire way of sticking to a proper diet plan with set meal times. In the same study mentioned earlier, participants showed lower blood glucose levels following the bread and vinegar meal as well. 3. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) detoxifies the body ACV helps flush toxins out of the body, thereby helping it perform better, particularly in its digestive and metabolic processes. This ensures that it absorbs the maximum amount of nutrients from food. 4. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) prevents fat buildup ACV speeds up your metabolism and helps you burn fat much faster. Since it is rich in enzymes and organic acids, it also helps in how efficiently fat is burnt as well. Although more human studies need to be done on this, some experts also claim that ACV may help bring down your cholesterol levels. How to use Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) ? ACV can be quite unpleasant for many people, therefore, it’s ideal that you gradually introduce it into your diet. Apart from using it as a salad dressing, you can also dilute a teaspoon of ACV in a cup of water and have it once a day. As you get used to it, you can increase it to two teaspoons per day and see how it affects you. Most experts suggest adding 2 tablespoons of ACV to a cup of water and having it one to three times a day. Note that this depends on how well you tolerate ACV. If you frequent experience heartburn or other digestive symptoms, consider having less than 1 tablespoon of ACV per cup of water a day.
