THIS keto diet plan offers ‘superior’ weight loss - according to Australian dietician

THE KETO diet offers ‘superior’ weight loss, according to Australian a dietician. The ketogenic diet is a high-protein diet which involves cutting carbohydrate foods from your diet.

The keto diet is like the once popular Atkins diet, in that it promotes eating low carb foods.

The diet involves limiting carbs to 50 grams or less, which puts the body into a state of ketosis.

While the Atkins diet works in phases, the keto simply involves cutting the amount of carbs you eat right down.

For that reason it is much more simple for dieters to follow - and now one nutritious hs claimed the diet helps with superior weight loss and could help with epilepsy and seizures.

Susie Burrell is a dietician and nutritionist with two Honours degrees in Nutrition & Dietetics and Psychology.

She has told dieters that there are many benefits to the diet plan.

She wrote for of the keto diet: “With their superior weight loss and associated reductions in inflammation in the body, there are a number of benefits, particularly for individuals with high blood glucose levels, fatty liver and significant amounts of weight to lose.”

She also said: “There is no evidence to show that keto diets are damaging to the body.”

She advocates avoiding foods like bread, cereals, pasta, rice, sugar and even fruit during the diet to quickly drop weight.

The theory is that if dieters train your body to run off fat then they can achieve better weight loss.

What is ketosis?

Ketosis is a state that the body goes into if it doesn’t have it usual source of energy - carbohydrates.

The body then turns to ‘ketones’ to create energy.

Ketones are created from the liver and are converted from fat.

So how do you know you’re in ketosis?

It is possible to measure it by testing urine, blood or breath samples, but there are also some telltale symptoms which don’t require any testing.

Look for a dry mouth and increased third, increased urination and ‘keto breath’ - this is due to a ketone body called acetone escaping via the breath and can make a person; breath smell fruity.

I would find it hard to give up fruit, but may experiment. Thank you.

When it comes to fruit we eat mainly berries and the occasional apple which we share. We have both experienced the thirst and keto breath.

I've been put off by talk of the breath smell when I've read on this diet before. I might try though as fruity breath doesn't sound so frightening.

I think the lchf diet would be very helpful for mature individuals. My mother consumes too many carbs, eating rice krispies and crackers. I love the clear headed feeling with very limited carbs. Unfortunately I cannot convince her to ditch the carbs. I will continue on this way of life in the future. Very thankful I found this website. Please continue the good work.

Susie is one of the many experts who either contradict themselves over time or gradually change their views without ever admitting their previous advice was based on mainstream nonsense.

I find it bemusing that these experts feel they can now recommend high fat diets, with the disclaimer that they have to be based on evoo, salmon and avocados.

The cognitive dissonance is staggering.
