There are many things to consider before deciding to embark on a journey to ketosis, or “keto,” as many people call it. Experts say that one major factor that impedes weight loss for adults is not the fact that they are eating too many carbs, but rather they are eating the wrong carbohydrates. If you do want to try a low-carb or keto diet, it’s still important that you choose nutritionally dense foods, like vegetables, fatty fish, and healthy fats. Tubs of sugar-free whipped cream and pounds of bacon may “fit” the macronutrient profile of the keto diet, but that doesn’t mean it’s what you should eat. There are many aspects to a ketogenic diet that should be considered before it … [Read more...] about Read this before going on a ketosis diet: Understand how it works and the potential dangers if you do it wrong

If you don’t, you’re not alone. According to an article in The Conversation, 98 percent of health professionals failed to explain the process of weight loss. Out of 150 doctors, dietitians, and personal trainers surveyed, only three gave the right answer. And no, it was not “fat turns into energy,” as most people think. Neither was it “fat turns into muscle.” It’s not “it is expelled through the colon,” either. So what is the answer? The answer is that fat breaks down into carbon dioxide (CO2) and water. The former is expelled via exhalation and the latter enters your blood until it is passed out as … [Read more...] about Where does body fat go when you lose it?

Story highlights If it isn't turned to energy or muscles and doesn't go into the toilet, where does fat go? Fat is converted to carbon dioxide and water The world is obsessed with fad diets and weight loss, yet few of us know how a kilogram of fat actually vanishes off the scales. Even the 150 doctors, dietitians and personal trainers we surveyed shared this surprising gap in their health literacy. The most common misconception by far, was that fat is converted to energy. The problem with this theory is that it violates the law of conservation of matter, which all chemical reactions obey. Some respondents thought fat turns into muscle, which is impossible, and others assumed it escapes via the colon. Only three of our respondents gave the right answer, which means 98% of the health professionals in our survey could not explain how weight loss works. So if not energy, muscles or the loo, where does fat go? The enlightening facts about fat metabolism Read More The correct … [Read more...] about Where fat goes when you lose weight
