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.
Prof. Antonio Paoli - University of Padua
THE KETOGENIC DIET
It is a diet that almost entirely excludes carbohydratesand is based on the consumption of proteinand fatsand on inducing ketosis. The body is forced to use its fat depositsto produce energy, and due to a series of complex biochemical reasons, ketonesare 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 mechanismthat has allowed the human race to survive during periods of fasting in our evolutionary history and stopped us from dying out.
