How Ketosis & Ketogenic Diets Work

Ketosis is a normal metabolic process, something your body does to keep working. When it doesn’t have enough carbohydrates from food for your cells to burn for energy, it burns fat instead. As part of this process, it makes ketones. Ketones are substances that are made when the body breaks down fat for energy. When you cut way back on your calories or carbs, your body will switch to ketosis for energy.

Is the Ketogenic Diet the Cure for Multiple Diseases?

Ketogenic Diet Improves Insulin Sensitivity and Numerous Aging Markers
Typically, restricting your carbohydrates to 30 or 40 grams per day, along with an appropriate amount of protein, is enough to “starve” your brain into ketosis. Exercising, particularly while fasting, is also very effective at jumpstarting your fat-burning engine. The more consistently you exercise, the better your body will be at using your own fat stores for energy.

Ketogenic Diet Shows Promising Results for All Dementia Stages


Metabolic Effects of the Very-Low-Carbohydrate Diets: Misunderstood “Villains” of Human Metabolism
During very low carbohydrate intake, the regulated and controlled production of ketone bodies causes a harmless physiological state known as dietary ketosis. Ketone bodies flow from the liver to extra-hepatic tissues (e.g., brain) for use as a fuel; this spares glucose metabolism via a mechanism similar to the sparing of glucose by oxidation of fatty acids as an alternative fuel. In comparison with glucose, the ketone bodies are actually a very good respiratory fuel. Indeed, there is no clear requirement for dietary carbohydrates for human adults.
