I’m a realtor, I sell houses for a living, I’m also a dietician and a fitness enthusiast, I used to be heavily overweight, my BMI was in the 30’s for a taste of where I was at. Being a realtor, I struggled to feel awake at times, especially with a client who was very persistent for example, I also struggled at being able to stay awake at regular times of the day because of my heavy addiction to eating carb heavy, sugar filled foods like Pizza’s and Soda’s to shore up my energy levels. One day I decided enough was enough, and I decided to go on something my friend Joey recommended to me: Weight loss and Cleanse with Bio slim Cleanse “the Keto diet” .
The keto diet essentially forces you to eat less than 30 grams of net carbs a day (That equals total carbs – Fiber, as Fiber is not counted as a net carb, this doesn’t mean you can eat cookies all day and then eat a fiber supplement to “get rid of the carbs”, that’s not how it really works). Eating this little amount of carbs in a day forces your body into a state of metabolism known as Ketosis, where your body uses Ketone bodies as fuel instead of glucose.
There are a number of great benefits to this process:
- Ketone bodies are better than Glucose as a clean fuel source for the body
- The Hunger hormone is suppressed by Ketosis
- Insulin levels will remain much more stable throughout the day, reducing weight gain
- The first 10-15 pounds will come off extremely quickly as Ketosis forces the body to jettison a lot of water weight in the first week or so of dieting.
- After your body adapts your resting energy levels are much better
