Following on from my post a couple of weeks ago I want to explain why such a high percentage of saturated fat in the diet?
To reach ketosis we need to train the brain to understand that fat is a better source of fuel. It burns long and even. Eating high fat gets the brain to realize there is no famine or starvation going on once you cut out those starchy carbohydrates and sugars. Once you glycogen storages are depleted and blood glucose is lowered, the brain is forced to find a new source of energy.
What are the direct of a ketogenic diet?
More on that next week.
