If you live in Shelby, NC or any of the surrounding communities, including Boiling Springs, Kings Mountain, or Cherryville, you may have heard of the keto diet. What exactly is this type of diet and what type of benefits are associated with it?
Here at Carolina Chiropractic Plus, we want you to have optimum health. This includes finding the kind of health plan that works for you. One diet that many people have found success with is the ketogenic diet (or keto diet for short). This is a low-carb, high-fat diet plan that focuses on eating adequate amounts of protein while restricting sugar and carb intake.
By minimizing or avoiding these types of food, the goal is to achieve something called ketosis, which is a metabolic process that burns stored fats. Because you aren't eating a lot of carbohydrates, your body is forced to burn stored fat instead of glucose. This, in turn, produces ketones, which are small fuel molecules that act as an alternate source of fuel for the body when glucose levels are low.
There are many benefits to following a keto diet. Some of these benefits include:
Besides these benefits, if you are a woman, a keto diet can aid in hormone balance and help to improve symptoms of the polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
If you would like to know more about the keto diet, please don't hesitate to contact Carolina Chiropractic Plus at 704-482-0135.
We are located at 145 W Dixon Blvd in Shelby, NC and also service Boiling Springs, Kings Mountain, and Cherryville.
