The ketogenic diet

Ketosis is a specific, fully physiological bodily state in healthy individuals. There have always been two ways of inducing ketosis: either fasting or a diet heavy in fats and proteins. It is now also possible to implement a ketogenic diet with the use of Ketogenic foods.

Le Gamberi Ketogenic Foods are prepared with mixes containing a minimal amount of carbohydrates, made up of balanced plant proteins and vegetable fibres.
Gluten-free products which can replace traditional flour products are obtained by processing this mixture.
Proteins, complex chains of amino acids which are the building blocks of life, are important for many of the chemical reactions taking place in the human body.
Le Gamberi Ketogenic Foods do not cause kidney problems because they contain plant proteins, not animal proteins.
The fibres carry out an important role in the prevention of intestinal tumours and in relieving constipation.
A healthy diet is one factor which is fundamental to everyone's wellbeing.

THE KETOGENIC DIET

It is a diet that almost entirely excludes carbohydrates and is based on the consumption of protein and fats and on inducing ketosis. The body is forced to use its fat deposits to produce energy, and due to a series of complex biochemical reasons, ketones are formed and are used by the brain as a source of energy. This diet works because it forces the body to use its fat reserves. This is the physiological mechanism that has allowed the human race to survive during periods of fasting in our evolutionary history and stopped us from dying out.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN KETOSIS

AND KETOACIDOSIS

Ketosis is one of the body's physiological mechanisms used in the absence of sugar, which causes no problems in healthy individuals. Ketoacidosis is a medical condition linked to decompensated diabetes.

A HIGHT PROTEIN DIET AND A
CARB-FREE DIET

It is never a good idea to mix the diets because each applies different rules to the other. A high-protein diet should not be combined with carb-free products. In a ketogenic nutritional regime, carb-free products containing fatsmust be used under the supervision of someone who knows how to use them.

THE KETOGENIC DIET

AND CHOLESTEROL

Most of the studies on the ketogenic diet and cholesterolshow that, despite the use of fats, total cholesterol reduces on this diet, HDL cholesterol, which has a protective role, increases and LDL cholesterol decreases.

THE KETOGENIC DIET

AND QUANTITY

The quantityof food permitted depends on the protein sources. In the case of animal proteins, eating 4/5kg of meat every day isn't a good idea. By taking advantage of carb-free products that contain high-quality plant proteins and a low carbohydrate content you can eat until you are full.

THE KETOGENIC DIET

AND POSSIBLE LAPSES

The ketogenic diet requires a few days before the ketosis mechanism is triggered. Even a small lapse is enough to stop this mechanism, which greatly reduces feelings of hunger after just a few days. Even a small lapse is enough because your body starts to receive hunger signals again.

THE KETOGENIC DIET

AND SIDE EFFECTS

There is a clear distinction to make between the ketogenic diet and the high-protein diet; they are not the same thing. It is important to use plant proteins with very low carbohydrate content to bypass the problem by preserving kidney and liver function, keeping the body in ketosis. The ketogenic diet does not cause any liver problems.

 

BALANCE

AND FEELING BLOATED

Weight loss should not be assessed using the scales but by keeping an eye on clothes sizes or by analysing body composition in order to understand how fat and muscle percentages change, because protein increases lean body mass and muscle mass weighs much more than the same volume of fat. You may feel bloated if your intake of water is low, it is essential you drink a minimum of two litres of water every day.

MAINTENANCE

The problem with diets is you often lose weight quickly, only to regain it even more quickly when you go back to eating normally. A ketogenic diet requires gradual reintroduction of sugars; first simple sugars then complex sugars. A period of maintenance is needed before returning to a traditional diet.
