The ketogenic diet comprises increased intake of healthy fats and proteins and reduced carbohydrate intake. Through this protocol, it activates a biological process that allows the body to burn fat instead of carbohydrates for energy production. As a result, ketones are produced in the body. These are compounds that accumulate in the blood and are removed through the urine.
Where necessary and feasible, SYMMETRIA may recommend a ketogenic diet plan, as it appears to be a highly effective diet intervention with immediate effects on weight loss. The ketogenic diet can be applied for a limited period to achieve immediate results in weight loss and is then ideally followed by a less rigorous diet, to help maintain weight loss.
The primary benefit of the ketogenic diet is that it significantly reduces the feeling of hunger. It includes both animal sources of protein such as meat, poultry, eggs and fish, as well as vegetable sources such as nuts, edamame and tofu. Nuts are a good source of fats in addition to protein in this diet, which is why they are almost indispensable in a ketogenic diet. The ketogenic diet also includes plenty of vegetables, avocados, olive oil, coconut oil, and butter.
