Keto Diet Questions and Answers:
Q) Can a Ketogenic diet help weight/fat loss?
Yes. Because insulin (blood sugar) in your blood will be consistently lower.
Q) Can a Ketogenic diet help energy?
Yes, with the right sources of fuel. However, you’ll first need to go through sugar withdrawal and reduce the amount of glucose in your blood and liver. It can take between 48-hours for fit individuals and up to 15-days for non-fit individuals.
Q) Is a Ketogenic diet healthy for the long run?
Yes. It is very healthy. Individuals will outperform the population in regards to health, energy, and length of life.
Q) Dr. Derek, do you recommend a ketogenic diet for your clients?
No. It is both unnecessary and too difficult for most people.
Instead, I have more success with clients eating the ‘Right Carbs’ every day. In addition, I even have them eat the ‘Wrong Carbs’ on certain days. I try to use the benefits of a ketogenic diet, but make it easier long-term for my clients.
It all depends upon the individual’s current fitness status, goals, age, medications, and behaviors. I do recognize that certain principles of a Ketogenic diet are effective for many health benefits as well as for burning fat.
