What is the Keto Diet?

The ketogenic, or “keto” diet, is a low-carb, high-fat weight loss plan that can help kickstart a healthy lifestyle. After a few days of following the diet, your body will enter a state of ketosis, in which stored fat is broken down into ketones for energy. The keto diet also has many other health benefits in addition to weight loss, which are listed below.   

What are the Health Benefits of the Keto Diet?

1. Rapid Fat Loss

As noted above, the keto diet prompts fat loss by forcing your body to use stored fat for energy. After several days of being in ketosis, your body begins to use fat as its main source for fuel, leading to rapid fat loss. Plus, with the addition of Hyper Keto Max, your body will enter ketosis 6x faster, helping you burn even more fat than you would by following the keto diet alone. 

2. Lowers Insulin Levels

Due to the keto diet’s insulin-reducing effects, it has frequently been used as a natural treatment for Type 2 diabetes. By lowering carb intake and increasing healthy fats, the keto diet can reduce insulin levels and aid in weight loss. In fact, many Type 2 diabetics who follow a keto diet are able to reduce the amount of insulin they need. 

3. More Energy Throughout the Day

Once your body becomes accustomed to being in ketosis, you will notice more sustainable energy levels throughout the day. This is because fat is a more powerful and stable energy source than carbs. Plus, the addition of natural raspberry ketones and green coffee bean extract in Hyper Keto Max will further energize your body!

4. Reduces Inflammation in the Body 

Inflammation is the body’s way to protect you from infection, bacteria, and viruses. However, chronic inflammation in the body can lead to a myriad of health consequences — think arthritis, cancer, asthma, mental illness, and more. Luckily, the keto diet can reduce inflammation in the body, since ketones are an anti-inflammatory chemical. All in all, reducing inflammation using the keto diet can improve your overall health and protect you from disease in the long run.

    How to Get Started

    Getting started with the keto diet may seem intimidating, but these tips can help you achieve success. For easy meal planning, it is essential to know exactly what foods and drinks to consume as well as what to avoid. Spend some time looking over the above list to familiarize yourself with keto-friendly foods, as well as what foods to avoid at all costs. 

    When first beginning the keto diet, it is natural for your body to crave carbs and other unhealthy foods that it is used to. The best way to avoid these temptations is to eliminate them altogether. Before starting the diet, stock your fridge and pantry with keto-friendly foods, and either put away or throw out non-keto foods to prevent caving into cravings. Having keto-friendly foods readily available to eat will increase your chances of success. 

    Lastly, it is important to have someone to hold you accountable since the keto-diet can be very difficult to stick to — especially during the first couple days. Try telling a trusted family member or friend that you are going on the diet so they can encourage you to stay on track. Or, join the Hyper Keto Max Facebook group for continuous encouragement, advice, and camaraderie!

    Getting Started with Keto Checklist 

    • Familiarize yourself with what to eat and what not to eat while on the keto-diet
    • Stock your fridge with keto-friendly foods
    • Put away or throw out non-keto foods
    • Accept that the first couple days may be difficult as your body is getting used to the diet
    • Find an accountability partner to help you stay on track
    • Join the Hyper Keto Max Facebook Group 

    Other Lifestyle Changes

    Practicing the following lifestyle changes can help you lose even more weight while on the keto diet. 

    Intermittent Fasting

    Practicing intermittent fasting can help you achieve ketosis faster, thus maximizing your weight loss. We recommend eating between 12pm and 8pm to see the best results.  

    Weekly Meal Prep

    Many keto dieters find success in planning out their meals a week in advance. Researching recipes, grocery shopping weekly, and even cooking beforehand can make the transition to a keto diet easier. Plus, it’s easier to avoid eating out or ordering fast food when you already have a delicious, keto-friendly meal waiting for you at home. 

    Tracking Progress

    While on the keto diet, continuously tracking your progress can help you stay motivated. Since we see ourselves every day, it can be difficult to notice our progress. Therefore, it is important to take pictures and write down your weight before and after starting the diet to see your results.
