The Century-Old Forgotten Diet for Optimal Health and Beauty

The Century-Old Forgotten Keto Diet for Optimal Health and Beauty

It’s 2018, and there has never been a greater abundance of workout methods, diet plans, and remedies to become our best versions. Still, the health status of today’s population has never been worse. Only in the UAE are 70% of the population overweight , 19% has diabetes, and heart disease is the most common cause of death . And it’s not due to lack of effort: we are spending fortunes on gym memberships and weight loss plans. Clearly, we are working hard to take care of ourselves – but without achieving the intended result.

Perhaps that’s exactly the issue: we’re overcomplicating what should be simple. The solution may have been right in front of us the entire time, but forgotten among the wealth of options. So let’s put high-tech gym regimes and complicated diet plans to the side for a minute, to discover a century-old secret to optimizing health. Would you like a bonus gift? The method that I’m about to reveal is like a beauty elixir too!

The secret to boosting ourselves from the inside and out is called the ketogenic diet. It’s a scientific eating protocol created by US researchers in the 1920’s. Far from a diet fad, its health benefits have been proven for over a hundred years now. All of the issues above, such as excess weight, diabetes, and heart disease, can be reversed or reduced by adopting the ketogenic way of eating.

The ketogenic diet is high in fat, moderate in protein and very low in carbohydrates. The purpose of the method is to reach the metabolic state of ketosis, which happens on a carbohydrate-deficient diet. The liver starts producing molecules called ketones, and once these reach a certain level in the blood, the body enters ketosis.

Ketosis affects the body positively in numerous ways. The most noticeable outcome is probably losing weight, since ketosis puts the body into automatic weight loss mode. That’s right: you don’t even have to work out to slim down when using the ketogenic protocol! Just enjoy the delicious food and let ketosis work its course.

Let’s look at what’s possible for health and beauty on the ketogenic protocol. Can you believe how we could ever forget this diet in the first place?

Health Benefits of the Ketogenic Diet:

1. Minimized risk for chronic illness
Research shows that the ketogenic way of eating is decreasing the risk of cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease, among other illnesses.
2. Stabilised blood sugar
Ketogenic foods balance the blood sugar level, giving relief from sugar cravings and can even reverse diabetes Type 2.
3. Stabilised insulin levels

Beauty Benefits of the Ketogenic Diet:

1. Clear skin
Cutting sugar and carbohydrates and instead, adding healthy fats makes the skin glow.
2. Detox
The ketogenic diet is satiating, which means less snacking and giving the body a rest from breaking down food.
3. Weight loss
A by-product of ketosis is typically weight loss until reaching target weight.
