Some of you may be familiar with the term ketogenic diet. For those who aren’t let us introduce you to it.

The main focus of the ketogenic diet is consuming healthy fats, protein and low carbs. The ratio usually goes 75% fat, 20% protein and 5% carbs, but these numbers can vary, based upon the recommendations of your doctor or nutritionist. The goal with this diet is to minimize sugar and carbs ( which convert to sugar) so that your body is in a metabolic state called ketosis. In this state the body burns fat for energy instead of glucose.

The base of this diet is the fact that cancer cells need glucose to thrive. And since carbohydrates turn into glucose in your body, this diet’s purpose is to lower the glucose levels in your blood through limiting carbs and sugars in order to deplete cancer cells of their energy source, literally starving cancer cells to death.

The funding idea of this diet is Dr. Otto Warburg’s discovery. He was a German research who thanks to his discovery about the fundamental differences between cancer cells and healthy cells, as well as the discovery that malignant tumors feed on sugar, won the Nobel Prize in 1931.

Namely, cancer cells have high amount of insulin receptors on their cellular surface, ten times more than healthy cells, which allows them to absorb a significantly higher amount of glucose – the reason why sugar is so detrimental to anyone with cancer.

But, sugar is a key factor in other chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Knowing that cancer cells thrive and multiply with sugar, this diet can eliminate carbohydrates and sugar making it effective in preventing and fighting cancer cells.

Furthermore, this diet is excellent for anyone who tries to lose weight because over time it converts the body from a carb burning mode to a fat burning mode.

It is also able to reduce inflammation and improve insulin sensitivity, maintain seizures, increase HDL (good cholesterol) and reduce the number of LDL particles in blood. Individuals with Type 2 diabetes may find that they are able to reduce their medication.

If you want this diet to help you with any health condition mentioned above, keep in mind that consulting with your doctor about it should come first.

Another reason why this diet is so beneficial for your health is that it will help you deal with:

  • Metabolic Syndrome
  • Neurodegenerative conditions (Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Parkinson’s)
  • Overweight
  • Acid Reflux
  • Cancers
  • Chronic pain
  • Heart Disease
  • Pre Diabetes
  • Seizures

Foods that are part of this diet are:

Healthy fats – Coconut oil, Butter, Olive Oil, Avocados

Low carbohydrate vegetables Cauliflower, Celery, Collard greens, Kale, Asparagus, Broccoli, Brussel sprouts, Cabbage, and Spinach.

Proteins from: Organic pastured poultry, Wild fish and seafood, Grass fed organic dairy, Fermented dairy, Grass fed beef, and Wild game.
