The magic is in the food
The last few years have been nothing but an era of new changes and adoptions in personal and professional life. There have been new trends and practices that have come up and changed the way we live our lives and affected the overall human development and thinking. Such is the concern for our health and fitness, as everyone knows the importance of a healthy and fit body. Recently many workout routines and diets have been coming up that have a beneficial effect on the body and overall health and immunity of a person.
As health and fitness are becoming a major concern among people and gaining more awareness and momentum as an issue. Also, the healthcare industry has been witnessing a major boom as the world has opened their eyes to the benefits of healthcare and fitness, and as these products and services are becoming accessible and affordable, more and more people have started consuming it. Among these new practices and methods are something we all have heard about and its benefits and results, Keto diet.
“It takes five minutes to consume 500 calories. It takes two hours to burn them off.”
Every diet has its own benefits and so does the Keto diet, following are some of the magnificent benefits.
Keto is short for ‘ketogenic’ which involves consuming high amounts of fat, moderate amounts of proteins and even fewer carbs, a lot of everyday foods and fruits are off the table. Keto diet was designed in the 1920s for treating patients suffering from epilepsy which helped them a lot. Later the diet was used in helping individuals following the same lose weight, as the body under this diet starts using fat as the first source of fuel as this diet involves low carbohydrate consumption.
This diet not only proves beneficial for losing weight but can also help in improving heart health, may protect brain function, reduce acne and it might also reduce the risk of certain types of cancer. Keto diet proves to be extremely beneficial for individuals suffering from epilepsy. Keto diet can also benefit those who are suffering from weight problems and in some lucky cases, this diet may reverse type 2 diabetes.
Nothing in this world is foolproof, and the side effects or problems with the Keto diet are.
No matter how lucrative the benefits of keto diet sound, there is always a different side to the coin. First of all, this diet is not easy to continue with as one has to give up a lot of food options, many of which are highly nutritious such as fruits, legumes, wheat, etc. Moreover, the first few days are the toughest as the body gets adjusted to the change in nutrition consumption, making one feel awful and low, this is also known as keto flu.
Also, this diet is not easy to maintain, as all of us have to go out and attend social gatherings and such, this diet means one has to deprive themselves of these situations. One also has to prepare the meals in advance and carry it along with them, as this diet is not readily available at every place. Also, as the individual comes off from this diet, the weight lost comes back eventually as the body loses water weight as carbohydrate stores in the body carry water.
The final take from all the talks about food and fitness.
Keto diet is not a league apart compared to other diets; thus, it makes very less difference between choosing this diet or other diets. Every diet, fitness regime and practice have its pros and cons, but it depends on individuals what they want to follow and adhere to.
The most important takeaway is to understand that health is the only wealth that will stay with one till the very end, and it is our foremost duty to take utmost care and maintain the same. One should always have a diet that is full of nutrients and vitamins one needs but this also needs to be incorporated with a workout regime as exercise is necessary as well is very beneficial for body’s overall well-being and functioning.
