• Keto Diet

    • The form of the dietary protocol where the key component of the diet is "The Fat".
    • There are negligible Carbohydrates in this form of Diet (less than 10 - 20 grams per day)
    • This diet is in vogue for more than a century for "Epilepsy Patients".
    • Glucose is considered to be "Excitatory" to Brain and Ketones are considered to have calming effects.
    • In Epilepsy patients, it's "Normal Calories Keto Diet" which is practiced because weight loss is not the primary target of Keto Diet in them.
    • For weight loss, we need to follow the "Calorie restricted Keto Diet".
    • In the absence of exogenous carbohydrates, some glucose comes from the "Glycerol" component of the "Triglycerides" and the remaining energy comes from the fatty acid oxidation which provides " Ketones".
    • A healthy Liver and functioning Hormonal system are prudent to get the healthy results of the Keto Diet.
    • This is very important to note that the Liver is the primary site of "Fatty Acid Oxidation".
    • Functional Growth Hormone in presence of Catecholamines and functioning Thyroid hormones are essential for lipolysis (Fat Breakdown).
    • Like any other restricted dietary protocol, the "Keto Diet" should always be followed under the strict supervision of a Doctor to avoid Biochemical and Clinical Complications.

  • Ketogenic Diet

    • Any form of "Calorie Restricted Diet" finally converts to "Ketogenic".
    • Carbohydrate restriction is the key to "Ketogenicity"
    • In the situation of "Calorie restriction with Carbohydrate restriction", your body enters the phase of " Lipolysis (Fat Breakdown)".
    • The Fat breakdown releases "Glycerol" and "Fatty Acids".
    • The Glycerol becomes the endogenous source of Glucose.
    • The Fatty Acids oxidize to give "Ketones".
    • The Glucose (from Glycerol) and Ketones become the course of energy.
    • The fat broken thus becomes the source of energy (through lipolysis).
    • A healthy Liver and functioning Hormonal system are prudent to get the healthy results of the Ketogenic Diet.
    • This is very important to note that the Liver is the primary site of "Fatty Acid Oxidation".
    • Functional Growth Hormone in presence of Catecholamines and functioning Thyroid hormones are essential for lipolysis (Fat Breakdown).
    • Ketogenic Diet should always be followed under the strict supervision of your doctor to avoid Biochemical and Clinical Complications.
