Naturewell Juice Bar sell a number of keto-friendly juices in our LA bars and we would love you to come and try them.
Keto Diet for Beginners
A ketogenic, keto for short, is a very low-carb diet that works to fuel molecules in the body called ketones. Ketones are used to fuel the body when there is a low supply of blood sugar in the body. Ketones are able to produce when the body receives a very low number of carbs and just a small amount of protein.
Ketones are produced in the liver from fat and provide energy for all of the body, especially the brain. As the body cannot rely on fat alone, it needs glucose or ketones to help fuel it. When we follow a ketogenic diet we rely on our body’s constantly burning fat as low carbs means low insulin levels. As well as losing weight on a keto diet you will also feel less hungry and have a regular flow of energy rather than experiencing the ups and down of sugar rushes. Research into the keto diet has also shown that it can reduce inflammation and it was originally used as a way to reduce epileptic fits in children.
