How can a low-carb, high-fat diet benefit diabetics?
It is no secret that for overweight diabetics, weight loss carries huge health benefits. Not only does achieving a healthy weight help reduce the possible risk of serious complications like heart disease and stroke, and it also helps reduce insulin resistance. Studies have proven that for those with Type 2 diabetes, losing excess weight could even lead to diabetes remission or even a diabetes-free prognosis!
How can a ketogenic diet help me achieve my weight loss goals?
With a ketogenic diet, the goal is to have your body burn fat instead of carbohydrates or glucose for energy. To achieve this, those on keto diets consume high levels of fat and minimal carbohydrates.
How can a ketogenic diet help with my blood sugar levels?
The ketogenic diet can potentially lower blood glucose levels in diabetics due to the low carbohydrate content in the foods prescribed under a keto diet.
Carbohydrates are converted into sugar within the body, and when consumed in large quantities, carbohydrates can cause blood sugar spikes. Hence, those with Type 2 diabetes are recommended to lower their carbohydrate intake. (P.S. this is why W0W® was formulated to be low in carbohydrates as well!)
By adopting a ketogenic diet, carbohydrate consumption is lowered and as a result, some individuals report experiencing reduced blood sugar levels.
What can I eat on a ketogenic diet?
Those on ketogenic diets consume large amounts of fat in their diet, but not all fats are created the same! Heart-healthy fats form the cornerstone to achieving (& sustaining!) weight loss & better overall health.
Avoid saturated fats and instead opt for foods containing healthy fats like:
fatty fish (e.g. salmon)
olives and olive oil
nuts and nut butters
