Ketogenic Diet

A keto diet is well known for being a low-carb diet, where the body produces ketones in the liver to be used as energy. It’s referred to as many different names – ketogenic diet, low-carb diet, low-carb high-fat (LCHF), etc.

When you eat something high in carbs, your body will produce glucose and insulin. Glucose is the easiest molecule for your body to convert and use as energy so that it will be chosen over any other energy source. Insulin is produced to process the glucose in your bloodstream by taking it around the body.

Since glucose is being used as a primary energy source, your fats are not needed and are therefore stored. Typically on a normal, higher carbohydrate diet, the body will use glucose as the main form of energy. By lowering the intake of carbs, the body is induced into a state known
as ketosis.

Ketosis is a natural process the body initiates to help us survive when food intake is low. During this state, we produce ketones, which are produced from the breakdown of fats in the liver. The end goal of a properly maintained keto diet is to drive your body into this metabolic state. We don’t do this through starvation of calories but starvation of carbohydrates. Never is a very low calorie diet appropriate, and we should all be careful of such fads. Our bodies are incredibly adaptive to what you put into it ? when you overload it with fats and take away carbohydrates, it will begin to burn ketones as the primary energy source. Optimal ketone levels offer many health, weight loss, physical and mental performance benefits.

Easy/Exercise According to Blood Type

Your blood type is the key to you body’s entire immune system as it controls the influence of viruses, bacteria, infections, chemicals, stress ad weight. Literally it is a marker of. Have you ever wondered why two people can follow the same diet plan and one person loses and the other one does not? More likely they have
different blood types. If we eat according to our blood type, I can tell you which meats are best for you; which fruits and vegetables are best for you; which nuts, oils and grains are best for you, etc. I can even tell you how much protein you need per day to reach your goal weight. If you are going to sacrifice to eat healthy, why not choose the option that works the best?

Straight from the doctor himself:

Dr. Gary Knighton Arizona Medical Weight Loss

When it comes to my own struggles with losing weight, success is my greatest motivator, and when I am succeeding I stay “on the wagon.” I am not perfect, but I try to eat according to my blood type the majority of the time and when I do I not only improve my percent body fat, but I feel better. I have more energy, my mind is less foggy, and I have better digestion and feel more like I did when I was younger. Let’s face it, the further we get past the age of 21 the more tools we need. If you don’t know your blood type, we can do a simple 60-second test in the office and get you the proper nutritional and exercise guidelines for success!
