One of the best proofs that low-carb and high-fat Ketogenic Diet can truly aid in losing weight is the lady from New Zealand, who credited the mentioned diet plan for her 110-pound weight loss, as reported by Stuff NZ. The said lady is Ariana Omipi, who started at 287 pounds. Just within the period of 7 months, this young, beautiful lady lost weight, and it is all because of consuming fat-enriched, moderate protein, and little carbohydrate meals.
Ms. Omipi began the LCHF diet plan in July of 2013, and from them on, she had a very astonishing make-over. As of today, Ms. Ariana only weighs 171 pounds. Now 19 years of age, Ariana selected the Ketogenic Diet because she was stunned by the fact that it has been proven to generate quick weight loss without the need to suffer immense hunger or the need to starve one’s self.
As of now, she is still sticking to her Ketogenic Diet because she wants to reach her goal which is 143 pounds. The fact that she is following this low-carb and high-fat diet, this only means that Ariana Omipi is just consuming less than 50 g per day. After the Ketogenic Diet, Ariana said that she’ll continue with another form of low-carb, high-fat diet, the Paleo Diet.
Both the Ketogenic and Paleo Diets are justified by researches that could decrease the blood sugar level so as hormone surges which stimulates overeating, weight gain, and mood swings.
Consumption of Fat can’t make you Fat…
Even though only few individuals have heard of the low-carb and high-fat Ketogenic Diet, it became famous as an efficient method of speeding up the weight loss process and preventing heart illnesses, Alzheimer’s Disease, depression, and Diabetes. As of today, it is already popular and it is because of the longstanding position of the medical community regarding saturated fat.
Researches confirm that carbohydrates- and not fat- are the main causes of increase in weight, as well as inflammation-triggered conditions. Several cardiologists say that unprocessed, healthy saturated fat is indeed good for the body, and that it has been wrongly accused for onset of heart diseases, degenerative conditions, and obesity.
For the past 40 years, diet and medical groups audibly advised individuals to avoid the consumption of fat, especially the one found in animal proteins. From that time on, the cases of obesity in the United States of America increased, so as the cases of heart disease and Diabetes. Dr. David Perlmutter, a neurologist, said that corporate greed of those that are in the snack and wheat industries should be the one to blame for the calumniation of the saturated fat.
Dr. David Perlmutter, who penned the Grain Brain book, said that the low-carb and high-fat Ketogenic Diet can even prevent Alzheimer’s disease and ADHD. As stressed out by Dr. Perlmutter, the carbohydrates are overwhelming for the human brain. Dr. Perlmutter is also a Ketogenic Diet follower. He furthered that the human brain thrives on a low-carb yet high-fat kind of diet.
Dr. Perlmutter also added that slight increase in the blood sugar has been proven that could leverage the risk of a person of having Alzheimer ’s disease in the future. A professor and a dietician, Dr. Jeff Volek agrees to the statement of Dr. David Perlmutter. He quoted that the consumption of low-carb diet which has high-fat content, particularly unprocessed and healthy saturated fat, can alter Type 2 Diabetes, so as prevent heart related illnesses, and can fuel up the weight loss..
