You Are Not Losing Weight!? 6 Most Common Mistakes On LCHF And KETO Diets
Kilograms are not dropping on the weight machine whenever you stand on it? Then you might do something wrong…
Back to the few most popular ways of eating which are drastically reducing the consumption of carbohydrates and putting more emphasis on healthy fat.
The diets are the result of the latest scientific research that has shown that fat (only healthy ones) are no longer the biggest culprits for obesity and bad health. But they help healthy weight loss, reduced the desire for poor food, improved physical health, and even improved mental clarity. Many great world nutrition experts (like Mark Sisson, Dr. Mercole, and Dave Asprey) recommend this diet, and some even claim that it can cure and prevent cancer.
KETO diet and the LCHF diet, bring the body to the ketosis state, which is primarily ketone-fuel (to use the body as fuel, it must first break down into “small pieces”. These “small pieces” are called ketones). Ketosis is achieved by a significant reduction in carbohydrate in the diet or post (or by taking a supplement that promotes the production of ketones). The liver is the one that produces ketone bodies by degradation of fatty acids, whether of body fat or fat we eat. This is completely different from the physical “fuel” when we are not in ketosis: the carbohydrates that the body breaks down into glucose.
What does a healthy diet look like?
This is an interesting question and there are hundreds of opinions about the best answer.
A typical nutrition with low carbohydrates can simply focus on limiting carbohydrates with liberal amounts of other foods, with no particular emphasis on fats. It’s easy to eat mostly meat and any other non-carbohydrate food to have a low level of carbohydrate – but do not enter ketosis.
So what’s different? Ketogenic nutrition goes a step further and restricts the protein in order to achieve ketosis. According to Dr. Daniel Pompi, ketogenic diet consists of:
65 – 80% calories from fat
10 to 15% calories from protein (0.7 to 0.9 grams per kilogram of
with pure muscle mass)
the remaining 5 to 10% of calories from carbohydrates
In short, it is very important to consume a lot of healthy fat and limit the intake of carbohydrates and proteins to achieve ketosis.
If you like this diet and weight loss method (which is neither fast nor drastic), then you need to be aware that occasionally you will need a pile of spices. In that case, it would be good to consider whether you are doing something wrong in your diet.
These 6 mistakes can slow or stop the loss of pounds in keto or LCHF diets!
Too much dairy products!
It is not good to eat a lot of dairy products in the ketogenic diet because the protein in dairy products can deactivate Sirtuin, an enzyme that keeps metabolism under control and accelerates calorie burning, as well as boost insulin growth. While butter and ghee (from high-quality sources) usually do not cause this, unfortunately, they make greasy cheeses, cream, and yogurt. In addition, dairy products are a common cause of inflammation in the body, even when we are unaware of it.
If you are well-versed in dairy products, enjoy them, but do not overdo it and do not rely on cheese and cream as the biggest source of fat.
