This process of burning fat provides more benefits than simply helping us to shed extra weight — it also helps control the release of hormones like insulin, which plays a role in development of diabetes and other health problems. When we eat carbohydrates, insulin is released as a reaction to elevated blood glucose (an increase in sugar circulating in our blood) and insulin levels rise. Insulin is a “storage hormone” that signals cells to store as much available energy as possible, initially as glycogen (aka stored carbohydrates in our muscles) and then as body fat.
Si decides seguir este tipo de dieta debes limitar al máximo el consumo de carbohidratos, principal fuente de energía. El objetivo es que tu cuerpo tenga que recurrir a los depósitos grasos para obtener energía. De allí se deriva el nombre de dieta cetogénica. Dado que el catabolismo de las grasas genera cuerpos cetónicos en tu organismo, lo que se conoce como cetosis.
he estado haciendo los cálculos nutricionales y creo que para cubrir tus necesidades de proteína sin pasarnos del 10% de carbohidratos no sería posible de una manera natural. Salvo con suplementos de proteína (que no recomendamos, porque no sugerimos productos o elementos procesados) que no tengan origen animal, difícilmente podrías entrar en cetosis.
Certain studies suggest that keto diets may “starve” cancer cells. A highly processed, pro-inflammatory, low-nutrient foods can feed cancer cells causing them to proliferate. What’s the connection between high-sugar consumption and cancer? The regular cells found in our bodies are able to use fat for energy, but it’s believed that cancer cells cannot metabolically shift to use fat rather than glucose.
