What is Ketosis?
This is a process by which the fat In your body is used as fuel instead of glucose, therefore promoting weight-loss. As we all know glucose is a simple sugar which is gotten from carbohydrates and your body uses this to create energy For you to go about your daily activities.
A good reason for this is because glucose is quite easier to burn and a lot of energy isn’t required for it and we also know how the body uses proteins and fat to build and also repair tissues as well as creating hormones.
Now, this process changes, however slowly, when we stop eating carbohydrates in general. This is because your body opts for using the glucose reserves which are stored in your liver and muscles and known as glycogen and when it has no more left, it starts burning fat in the body.
Your body does this either through the fat already stored in your body or through the new intakes of fat you eat. The reason why this is has to be because not all the cells in your body can use fat for energy production and this is where an alternative fuel called Ketones is made.
