What on Earth is Ketosis?

What on Earth is Ketosis?

Yum



The “keto” in the word ketosis comes from the fact that it makes the body produce small fuel molecules called “ketones”. When your body doesn’t have blood sugars (glucose), your fat is used as the fuel you need. It’s a common misconception that the brain needs carbs. The truth is, ketones are an excellent fuel to power your brain and the benefits include improved memory, sleep and even increased energy. To get into ketosis you need low levels of the fat-storing hormone insulin. The most important way to achieve this is to remove the sugars and simple carbohydrates that make us gain weight, feel tired and run down.

 

What is ketoacidosis?

 

Isn’t it the same thing? The most common misconception about ketosis is confusing with ketoacidosis – a rare and dangerous medical condition that mostly happens to people with type 1 diabetes if they don’t take insulin. Even some health care professionals can mix up these two situations, perhaps due to the similar names and a lack of knowledge about the distinct differences.
