Does the Ketogenic Diet Work?
Does the Ketogenic Diet really work, or is it just another fitness industry gimmick?
The Ketogenic Diet seems pretty simple on face value. Eat a low amount of carbohydrate and increase fats, so you're using fat for fuel. But although it might sound simple, things are a little more complicated than that. So this article is going to cut through that complexity like a knife through butter (that's high fat so it's ok). Ultimately, you'll be able to decide if the Ketogenic Diet is one that will work for you, or whether it should be banished to the Room 101 of diets.
For a lot of people, the thought of cutting out sugar is a nightmare. And you might well be one of them. Sugar graces all the foods you love. Just think donuts, ice cream, soft drinks, cookies, jams, cereals, and fruit (for some people). And I'm sure you've tried to give them up in the past. But that only lasts for a couple of weeks. And before you know it you're binge eating your way through your bodyweight in sugary goodness.
So can the ketogenic diet work for 'normal' people that like 'normal' food? Or is the ketogenic diet for those with an ungodly amount of dedication and are happy for forego life's delicacies?
In this article I'm going to answer those questions for you. And by the end of the article you'll know if the ketogenic diet is right for you!
So put your feet up, grab a couple of donuts, because they might be your last (or are they?...).
