What is Ketogenic Diet And It's Health Benefits?

We started learning about Ketogenic Diet 3 years ago from a client who is a global pioneer in ketogenic dietary solutions, they asked us to create a bar that's Keto approved. The last 3 years we have learned so much about what ingredients can be used for Ketone Bars. At first we made a bar that was mostly coconut based which had a good run for about a year, then we started working with Whey Protein Concentrate, thinking this will be a great ingredient for the bar, that is when we ended up creating this Dark Chocolate Ketone Bar, we were very happy and excited that this bar satisfies your hunger and it tastes so good at the same time.

What is Ketogenic Diet?

The ketogenic diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares many similarities with the Atkins and low-carb diets.

It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat. The reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.

When this happens, your body becomes incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy. It also turns fat into ketones in the liver, which can supply energy for the brain.

Ketogenic diets can cause massive reductions in blood sugar and insulin levels. This, along with the increased ketones, has numerous health benefits.

Ketogenic Diet Helps You Lose Weight

A ketogenic diet is an effective way to lose weight and lower risk factors for disease.

In fact, research shows that the ketogenic diet is far superior to the recommended low-fat diet.

What's more, the diet is so filling that you can lose weight without counting calories or tracking your food.

One study found that people on a ketogenic diet lost 2.2 times more weight than those on a calorie-restricted low-fat diet. Triglyceride and HDL cholesterol levels also improved.

There are several reasons why a ketogenic diet is superior to a low-fat diet. One is the increased protein intake, which provides numerous benefits.

The increased ketones, lowered blood sugar levels and improved insulin sensitivity may also play a key role.
