Too Much Protein is Bad for Ketosis – How much is the perfect amount on a Keto Diet?

Ketogenic Diet Weight Loss, Ketosis Done Properly Is Key

Achieving the well reported Ketogenic Diet weight loss effect or more pointedly “fat loss” that has been getting around for the last few decades (mostly thanks to the Atkins Diet and other variations) isn’t nearly as hard as some make-out.  A lot of people sabotage their fat loss efforts with a one track mind approach.

We already know that one of the attributes of a ketogenic diet is enhanced fat oxidation which is also a trait that it shares with L-carnitine and Acetyl L-Carnitine.

9 Common Ketogenic Diet Mistakes That You Can Easily Avoid

1. Not Getting Enough Essential Electrolytes When we eliminate carbohydrates from our diet, our body stops holding onto essential electrolytes and flushes them out, along with all that water that high carb diets cause you to hold onto.

Make sure you replace your electrolytes to stave off the dreaded keto flu. 2. Extreme Calorie Restriction Initially, you should ignore calorie restriction all together while you adapt to a low-carb, high-fat...

Ketogenic Diet and Thyroid – Does Low Carb & Ketosis Cause Hypothyroidism
