Keto is good for you because it’s good for your cells.
Keto and intermittent fasting give a one-two punch to your gut. In the best way.
I just came back from a short European trip. I did do a lot of mountain biking, but of course, when in Europe you cannot deny yourself the wonderful food and wines. And I didn’t.
So, I enjoyed lots of indulgent choices. And my first few days back home were brutal when it came to getting caught up on sleep and recalibrating my diet.
Now I feel back on track by following my Ketopult plan. http://www.ketopult.com
I really dig the ketogenic diet. It is fundamentally a vegetable-based diet with healthy fats and proteins layered in. A keto regimen is sustainable when you focus on eating a large amount of vegetables (particularly leafy ones with a high fiber content like spinach, kale, chard, etc.) and complimenting them with appropriate fats and proteins, like olive and coconut oils, avocado, and nuts.
Eating a properly formulated ketogenic diet will enhance mitochondrial cell function, which is essential for our bodies’ functionality. Mitochondria are the chemical “muscles” in a cell. Their main job is cellular respiration: taking in nutrients, breaking them down, and turning them into energy.
There is also evidence that intermittent fasting (i.e. refraining from continuous eating) reduces mitochondrial free-radical production. Numerous studies have linked caloric restriction to improved mitochondrial function and increased longevity. When you fast, your mitochondria learn to increase oxygen efficiency and reduce oxidative stress byproducts, while maintaining ATP production. ATP is adenosine triphosphate, a high-energy molecule found in every cell. It’s basically the energetic currency of life...you want it!
And naturally, there is the exercise factor. Our bodies are designed for movement, and mitochondria loves exercise. So I know than when I pair a clean diet with intermittent fasting and working out, I’ll be back to tip-top shape in no time.
The answer my friends: eat your vegetables and your fats—at the right time—and go work out!
