A wrong diet leads to excessive weight and a state of chronic cellular inflammation. So the remedy for recovering good health is to lose weight. In addition, if you do not have kidney problems, the best way to lose excess weight, reduce cholesterol and triglycerides, reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke is to adopt the ketogenic diet.
REDUCTION OF CHOLESTEROL AND TRIGLYCERIDES
I understand that maybe not all of my readers will know what it is so, in this post, I will try to talk about it as fully as possible. Furthermore, I state that this diet is recommended for healthy people from a cardiovascular point of view with, at most, not serious problems of hypertension or excess fat in the blood or obesity. So to solve these problems you need to make changes in your diet. You should induce a state of nutritional ketosis in your body that causes the body to burn fat for energy and does not use sugars. Furthermore, the only way to achieve this is the ketogenic diet which also helps reduce cholesterol and triglycerides.
The benefits of this diet are obtained by reducing the consumption of carbohydrates. That is, taking a good amount of protein and a good amount of fat. In particular, the unsaturated ones rich in omega3 which protect the circulatory system). All this can be achieved by including in the diet discrete portions of soy which has a carbohydrate / protein balance in favor of the latter. So the ketogenic diet is the best way to lose weight in a healthy way because it removes fat reserves and uses them to produce energy. The use of fats represents a “cleaner” energy source than sugars with a lower emission of free radicals with consequent reduction of many inflammatory processes.
This diet has a high anti-cancer action because ketones are not usable by cancer cells which therefore struggle to survive and multiply in a situation of blood ketosis. So moderate ketosis has the effect of hindering the formation of cancer cells and the growth of tumors. Therefore, the antitumor action of soy flavonoids would be added to that induced by ketosis. Those who play sports or simply want to improve their fitness can greatly benefit from ketones as they have a structure very similar to that of the branched chain amino acids used to “build” muscle mass. In addition, the increase in ketones circulating in the blood also produces a sense of satiety by reducing excessive and unjustified appetite which is often the basis of the reasons that lead to obesity which has serious physical problems such as high cholesterol and triglycerides, atherosclerosis. , heart problems, worsening lifestyle, cosmetic problems, etc.
