Keto Diet SupplimentThere are nearly as many ways to lose weight as there are people trying to shed pounds. However, not all weight-loss programs are created equal, and they all have varying degrees of success. You may be discouraged when the diet a friend used to achieve significant results yields little for yourself. Maybe it’s time to take a step back and consider approaching your diet from a new, scientific way – the ketogenic diet.

Understanding Your Fuel Sources

The ketogenic diet was developed around what your body uses for energy and how it uses it. Too many people assume that having a low caloric intake is all that is necessary to have your body begin burning fat. While it’s true that all diets should consider calorie moderation, that isn’t the only factor at play. High insulin levels prevent your body from breaking down fat stores for energy. When you can’t access fat, your body will break down muscle instead.

So, just because you consume a small number of calories doesn’t mean you’re burning fat. If many of those calories break down into glucose (sugar), your blood glucose levels rise and your body produces more fat-blocking insulin as a result.

What Is the Ketogenic Diet?

The ketogenic diet is designed to keep your blood glucose levels as low as functionally possible. The focus of the diet is eating healthy fats, which don’t produce sugar when digested and are an efficient source of energy. You pair those fats with proteins to build muscle and provide essential nutrients. Lastly, you only eat a small portion of carbs because carbohydrates break down into glucose during the digestion process. These carbs should come in the form of nutrient-packed, fibrous vegetables.

Why Does It Work?

Many people achieve amazing results using the ketogenic diet because it works on a basic level. By keeping your glucose levels low, you also lower your insulin level. When your insulin levels are low, your body has access to its fat stores to burn as energy.

Supplementing Your Diet

During the ketogenic diet, your body needs to reach a state of ketosis. During ketosis, your body produces ketones, which stimulate the body to burn fat. However, reaching a state of ketosis naturally can be difficult and, for some patients, unhealthy. At Vitality Medical & Wellness, we offer supplements to help you throughout your ketogenic diet.

KETO//OS

KETO//OS (Ketone Operating System) provides your body with beneficial levels of ketones that begin acting within the hour. This eliminates the need for your body to reach a natural state of ketosis, a process that can, when done incorrectly, deprive some patients of necessary nutrients. People who utilize KETO//OS as a part of their diet notice increased energy, increased mental clarity, and faster fat loss.

VITA FUEL™

VITA FUEL™ is designed to provide your body with a steady source of nutrients all day rather than a big slew all at once that your body can’t utilize efficiently. VITA FUEL™ uses its bi-layer tablet to provide a consistent release of vitamins, minerals, and digestive aids.

Vita L-Carnitine

Studies suggest that Vita L-Carnitine may increase your acetylcholine levels. Acetylcholine helps improve absentmindedness and mild memory problems.

Consult a Professional

A ketogenic diet should only be undertaken with the guidance of a medical professional. It is important to ensure that your diet contains all the proper nutrients needed to maintain a healthy, functioning body. At Vitality Medical & Wellness Center, we can assist you with your weight loss and provide the proper supplementation needed for success.
