Basics of the Ketogenic Diet:
You have most likely heard the buzz about the Ketogenic diet, but what is the Ketogenic diet exactly? The basic principle behind the Ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet. It was originally used to treat difficult to control epilepsy in children and has now exploded as the new celebrity diet. But does the research support the hype?
Actually, when used correctly this diet has shown significantly improvement in a variety of diseases as well as has been critical for weight loss management. When discussing weight management, research has indicated that drinking a “Keto- Enriched Stimulator“, half an hour prior to consuming glucose (sugar), reduces your glycemic response as well as improves markers of insulin sensitivity without affecting your body’s natural ability to secrete insulin. In other words, this stimulator allows your body to use sugars more effectively. This can be great for weight loss management as well as for treating and preventing Type II Diabetes.

In my office, my favorite “Keto- Enriched Stimulator” beverage I use is Keto- Nootropic by Designs for Health. This powerful blend of Ketones is a fast acting, readily available carbohydrate-free fuel source that helps improve energy, burns fats and helps improve cognition.
