There are many weight loss programs out there. However, not all weight loss methods yield successful results for a healthier you.

If you are unhappy with your lack of success with alternative weight loss methods, the revolutionary keto diet under the medical supervision of Dr. Derrick Myers could benefit you.
What is the Keto Diet?
The keto diet is a widely popular and highly effective diet designed to increase fat burn more effectively. The keto diet, short for ketogenic, incorporates a high-fat and very low carbohydrate intake. Keto stems from the word ketosis, which is a natural state of the body in which energy is obtained from fat rather than blood sugar. This specialized diet is designed to eliminate carbohydrate dependence by sending the body into ketosis, and moving the main source of energy from glucose to ketones.
The keto diet offers benefits that go beyond effective weight loss. The basis of food intake involved in the keto diet has also been shown to benefit patients suffering from medical conditions including:
- Concussion recovery
- Heart disease
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Metabolic syndrome
- Parkinson’s disease
- Polycystic syndrome
What is Included in the Keto Diet?
SKD, or the standard keto diet is highly researched, and the primary recommended diet plan for those interested in the health and weight loss benefits of the keto weight loss program. The standard keto diet focuses on intaking very few carbs, a moderate number of proteins, and increased levels from fat. The standard percentage of intake includes: 75% fat, 20% protein, and 5% carbohydrates.
The typical keto diet advises only eating foods that contain less than 5% carbohydrates, such as veggies, meat, fish, and eggs – prepared with olive oil or butter, which are natural fats.
Foods that have more than 5 percent carbs including: fruit, rice, bread, and potatoes should be avoided.
Instead of drinking beverages that are high in carbs including beer and soda, should be replaced with low carb beverages including water, coffee, or wine.
Why is Diet Counseling Necessary?
As with most successful medical weight loss plans, keto counseling from a professional is advised in order to ensure optimal results and health throughout your weightloss journey.
