How ketosis helps health









A 2015 study also outlined the anti-inflammatory effects of ketosis.  One group with a background of a basic ketogenic diet under their belts is the Innuit people in portions of Alaska, Canada and Greenland, known for their low disease rate. A ketogenic diet will convert your body from   burning carbohydrates for energy to burning fat as your primary source of fuel.  Benefits from implementing a ketogenic diet:

  • Less hunger while dieting
  • Improved cognitive function in people who are cognitively impaired
  • Reduced cancer risk
  • Improved weight loss
  • Increased longevity and mental clarity
  • Anticonvulsant for epilepsy
  • Reduction in pain and inflammation

Ideally, once you have established ketosis you cycle healthy carbs back in to about 100 to 150 grams on the few days a week you do strength  training. Further, rather than being a prerequisite and foregone conclusion associated with aging, inflammation may be a reminder that, as you age, looking seriously at a ketogenic diet, exercising regularly, as well as getting plenty of daily non-exercise movement, and taking care of yourself is wise, as together they’ve been shown to alleviate pain and   related inflammation.
