What is the best diet to lose weight and fat?
We’ve all heard of those fad diets like the grapefruit diet or the apple diet. I am here to tell you diets that work. All those diets are fad, crash, “stupid” diets. A real diet contains a combination of muscle-building protein, energy-filling carbohydrates, and heart-healthy fats.
To lose weight, ketosis is the best diet and it is not a fad. On a ketogenic diet, one would eat a lot of protein and fat and few carbohydrates to get the body into a state of ketosis. Since there is no more glycogen in your body, due to the lack of carbohydrates, your body will build ketone bodies from your fat tissues to fuel your body and brain. As long as you eat enough protein, you’ll preserve your muscle and lose pounds of fat easily.
Getting into ketosis takes about 3-7 days, depending on your current glycogen storage. Ketosis feels strange at first because you will be lethargic and may experience headaches and even nausea. However, these symptoms disappear. You will also lose a lot of weight at first due to water weight.
Typical foods on a keto diet include nuts, whey protein, eggs, bacon, sausage, olive oil, butter, salmon, etc. anything that contains a large amount of protein and fat and no carbohydrates. A vitamin pill is often taken on a ketogenic diet, since you can’t eat many vegetables. (however you can eat at least one plate of salad)
It takes great willpower to stay on keto because if you cheat once or eat something wrong, your body will be out of ketosis. A process that took 3-7 days now needs to be redone.
In short, Keto is the best short-term diet you can do to cut.
