Insulin VS Ketosis?

There are many factors that can prevent ketosis, but the most common cause is the presence of insulin.

When you’re in the state of ketosis, ketones are used for energy, instead of fat and carbohydrates.

Insulin prevents ketones from being produced and the quickest way to reduce insulin is by watching what you eat.

There are two foods that you should reduce in your diet. They are carbohydrates and protein.

  • Carbohydrates

When you consume carbs, your body will break down the digestible foods into sugar which flows into the blood stream.

Your body then goes into alert mode as it has a high blood sugar level and creates insulin which halts the production of ketones.

Less carbs results in less insulin which translates to more ketones and faster fat loss. It is that simple.

  • Protein

Did you know that excessive protein intake can spike the insulin levels in your body? Not a lot of people are aware of this.

A moderate intake of protein is essential to achieving stable blood sugar levels and providing the body with just enough protein to function optimally.

The keto diet is a fat-based one. The belief is that you need to eat fat to lose fat. When your body is getting copious amounts of fat in its diet, it will be more motivated to shed the fat it’s clinging on to.

The body realizes that it has access to ample fuel. So, it doesn’t need to store too much for self-preservation.

By cutting down your carb and protein intake, you’ll be reducing the amount of insulin in your system greatly. This will help your body set the stage for accelerated weight loss.

The lower the amount of insulin the body produces the better chance that ketones will be created, and you will have no problem getting into ketosis.
