If you’ve heard about the Keto diet, you’ve probably heard it’s one of the most efficient ways to burn fat. But did you know it’s one of the oldest diets known to humankind, dating back to caveman days?
Back then humans were nomadic, moving around to where food was available in animal or vegetable form. When it was plentiful they feasted and when it was scarce they fasted, surviving off the body’s own fat stores, which today we know as the process of ketosis.
This, together with our predecessors’ daily physical activity, resulted in a sharp mental state, an efficient metabolism and a lean, mean rig. That’s why the same principles of ketosis form the basis of the Ketogenic diet today. Thankfully, these days it’s a lot easier to follow and doesn’t require long periods of starvation while you wait for a woolly mammoth to wander past.
What is Keto?
The Ketogenic diet is a low carb high fat (LCHF) diet, that results in ketosis. The Ketogenic diet is
designed to use fat as a key energy source (as opposed to carbs) which helps achieve ketosis –
burning fat as fuel. The breakdown is 70% fat, 20% protein and 10% carbs, achieved via a set
How does it work?
Put simply, ketosis is a state that our body enters when we don’t eat carbs. It’s a way for our body to use fats (body fats included) as the primary energy we need. It’s not only healthy for us, it’s more efficient for our brains to use.
When glucose is in short supply, the body turns to using fats for energy. Body fat is converted by the liver into ketones. The Keto diet lowers blood sugar and insulin levels and shifts the body’s metabolism away from carbs and towards fat and ketones, resulting in improved mental focus, higher metabolism and weight loss and better physical endurance.
Do I have to starve myself?
Absolutely not. In fact, you might be surprised by how much you can eat, especially when you combine a keto diet with regular exercise. The Keto experts at Keto-Fit have designed a program to keep your body in peak fat-burning mode, while keeping you satisfied during the day so you resist the urge to overeat. There’s a huge range of foods you can eat too, that previously you might have thought were a no-go. (Hello bacon, eggs and cheese.)

How long does it take to get into ketosis? How do I get started?
A ketogenic diet isn’t one you can jump on and off as it takes time for your body to enter the state of ketosis. This takes from two to seven days, depending on your body type, activity levels, and what you’re eating. The fastest way to get into ketosis is to exercise on an empty stomach, restrict your carbohydrate intake to 20g or less per day, and drink plenty of water.
Many people say that once their body adjusts to the new diet they feel fantastic, with increased energy, sharper cognitive function and better physical endurance.
