An American health and nutritionist says that the Keto Diet is the best way to lose weight quickly, but it has long lasting negative effects on the body that can be dangerous to our health.
According to media reports, the first weight loss diet was introduced in 1924. At the time, cat food was a way to control epileptic seizures. After that, in the 1970s, weight loss became popular with the Keto Diet.
Sarah Hamdan, a dietitian and nutritionist living in the United States, says that she never advises anyone to use keto-junk food because it has long-lasting negative effects on the body. They do not consider the health risks of ketogenic foods useful.
They say that the use of cat food can affect the liver and kidneys as well as other dangerous diseases.
Sarah says she thinks long-term effective and safe ways to lose weight are better for human health because they are not immediate but are not harmful to health. Physicians say that early weight loss can have negative effects on certain parts of the human body.
What is the Keto Gen Diet?
The Keto Jenk diet is a diet that is high in fat and low in carbohydrates. This diet contains about 70% fat, 25% protein and about 5% carbohydrates.
The human body produces energy from sugar or glucose. That’s why many athletes or people who want to lose weight prefer to go on an empty stomach or hungry after exercise. In this case, the body gets energy by using internal fat.
Doing this continuously becomes accustomed to the use of ketosis in the human body and this change is called ketosis. This means that the human body is now dependent on the fat found in the human body, ie the body gets its energy from fat and not from sugar. The process of ketosis begins in two to four days.
The Keto Genetic Diet also means limiting carbohydrate intake to just 50 grams. Fifty grams provides only ten calories to the body and the remaining ninety percent of the calories should be obtained from protein and fat.
On the other hand, nutritionists believe that it is healthy for young people to absorb 200 to 300 grams of carbohydrates. So many carbohydrates in a banana and a cup of boiled rice. This is equivalent to 45 to 60% of calories in the human body. Too many carbohydrates can lead to obesity.
It is true that ketogenic foods help in weight loss and lower blood sugar levels. In this context, it is also useful for diabetics. The transition from sugar to fat to gain energy also causes a condition called flu. Headaches, nausea and fatigue are also felt during this time. Keto flu is not harmful and the body improves in two to three weeks.
Sometimes human muscles or muscles also feel tense and have difficulty breathing. Some medical research has shown that the ketogenic diet also causes high cholesterol in the blood. In addition, it also increases the chances of causing inflammation in the body.
Sarah Hamdan added that increased risk of inflammation can also lead to heart disease. According to him, skipping such a diet can lead to diabetes as well as obesity.
It should be noted that research is currently underway on the benefits of ketogenic diet in the treatment of kidney disorders.
