Eat Fat to Burn Fat?

Yes, it’s true! The ketogenic lifestyle kills the big fat lie about low-fat diets. With keto, the goal is to eat a very high fat diet, which in turn, helps your body to burn more fat!

How? With the proven science of ketosis!

When you consume calories from fat for an extended period of time, your body becomes fat adapted and starts using fat (instead of carbs) for energy—that’s your body’s natural state of ketosis!

 

Learn the What, Why and How to Start Your Keto Lifestyle

What Is Keto?

The Keto buzzword is continually coming up everywhere. “Keto,” is short for “ketosis,” which is your body’s built-in system for burning fat for fuel. When instead of carbohydrates, healthy fats become your primary source of fuel, your body will start running at peak performance.

Keto kills the big fat lie that low-fat diets are the healthiest diets. That’s just not true. Low fat diets are typically higher in sugar and carbs and that spells trouble for your health.

The truth is, too much sugar and carbs can cause a myriad of health conditions and have caused people all over the world to become fat, sick, and tired. In the U.S., 1 in 3 adults are considered obese.

When you remove carbs and sugar from your diet and eat more healthy fats (like those in avocados or olives) your body will thank you in some incredible ways.

Keto Fuel Source

The Ketogenic Lifestyle Uses This Truth…

… about fats and carbs to help you unlock your natural fat-burning potential!

“Keto” comes from the word “ketosis,” which is your body’s natural process for turning fat into fuel. In ketosis, your body switches your fuel supply from burning carbs, which are converted into glucose, to burning fat, which is converted into ketones!

Glucose burns quick and causes that dreaded blood sugar spike. Ketones are processed by your cells at a more regular rate, leading to sustained energy without the crash.

What Are Ketones?

Ketones are the most efficient, high energy fuel for your body and brain.  As your body breaks down fat for fuel, it produces ketones, a byproduct of this fat metabolism in your liver. Ketones are a more efficient source of energy for your body than glucose.

Fat is your friend because fat is your fuel—and ketones make it all possible.

The “Fast” Way to Ketones

Ketosis happens naturally between meals and when you fast.  For example, when you wake up in the morning, your body is in or close to being in ketosis, because you haven’t eaten anything since dinner the night before. You’ve been in an overnight fast!

So, if you stop eating after 7:00 p.m. and don’t “refuel” until 7:00 a.m., that’s 12 hours. Extend that fasting mode and your body starts breaking down stores of body fat, forming ketones.

Extend that fast mode and you extend your body’s ketosis—you’re running on ketones and burning fat all day!

Cycle of Fasting and Ketosis

 

How Do You Kickstart Ketosis? 

How to Kickstart Ketosis

Ketosis happens naturally between meals and when you fast. When you wake up in the morning, your body is close to being in ketosis, because you haven’t eaten anything since dinner the night before. You’ve been in an overnight fast! So, if you stop eating after 7:00 p.m. and don’t “refuel” until 7:00 a.m., that’s 12 hours. Extend that fasting mode and your body starts breaking down stores of body fat, forming those high-energy ketones!

Ketones are superfuel for your body and brain! You want to keep your body in ketosis so it keeps producing them. Don’t undo your overnight fast by grabbing food first thing. Fill up on ketones—the fourth macronutrient! Unlike fats, protein, and carbohydrates, this is the macronutrient energy source your body makes. Supplement that source with exogenous ketones, like It Works! Ketones™!

 

Ketosis is a metabolic process. That’s why what you eat and when you eat it is so important to a successful keto lifestyle. This isn’t a diet; this is building complete, balanced meals with the right proportions of those core macronutrients—fats, protein, and carbohydrates.
Your macronutrient calorie intake breakdown should be: 70% healthy fats, 20% protein, and 10% carbohydrates.

 

Food is your fuel, and choosing the right food will help you maintain your body’s ketosis so you can burn fat for fuel. When it comes to eating 70% healthy fats, 20% protein, and 10% carbohydrates, you want to choose the right fats, protein, and carbs. Make your fats quality fats, those that are rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Choose proteins from wild-caught and grass-fed sources whenever possible. When it comes to carbs, think complex carbohydrates from non-starchy vegetables.

Choose the right foods with the What to Eat guide

A lot of people think that the keto lifestyle means you never eat a potato again! That’s not quite true. Once a week you’ll want to “reload” with carb cycling, alternating your carbohydrate intake. So pick one day to add back in “clean” carbs—complex carbs like sweet potatoes, squash, rice, black beans, quinoa, and whole fruits. This reloads your body with important macronutrients and allows it to stay in fat burning mode!

Ketones: “The Fourth Secret Macronutrient” 

There’s carbohydrates, proteins, fats—the three “macronutrients” you get from food that provide your body with energy. But, then there’s ketones—the macronutrient your body actually makes. By metabolizing the macronutrient fat, your body creates a powerful, premium fuel source in ketones.

So just what is a “macronutrient?” Why do you want fat-fueled ketone energy instead of carb-fueled glucose in your body?

See how they stack up head to head!

What’s the Best Fuel Source – Fats or Carbs? 

Your body is like a high performing sports car—the higher-quality the fuel, the better it performs. In ketosis, your body switches your fuel supply from burning carbs, which are converted into glucose, to burning fat, which is converted into ketones – the most efficient, high energy fuel for your body and brain.

Fats vs Carbs

MACRONUTRIENTS: Three You Eat, One You Make

Macronutrients are the foods and nutrients that you need in large amounts, as they provide the energy (the caloric fuel) your body depends on to function every day. Carbohydrates, proteins, and fats are your three food macronutrients.

By getting 70% of your macronutrient calories from healthy fats and only 10% from carbohydrates, you’re upgrading your body’s fuel supply, from carb-fueled glucose to fat-fueled ketones.

Ketones are the macronutrient your body makes. They are formed from your body’s metabolism of another macronutrient, fat. The powerful premium fuel source that ketones provide to energize your body and brain makes them a potent macronutrient in their own right.

Forget Counting Calories – Build Macronutrients

That’s why Keto is not a diet.  It’s not about counting calories. Living keto starts with building complete, healthy meals with the right proportions of these core macronutrients…

What to Eat?

So, as you may have noticed, what you eat and when you eat it is important to a successful keto lifestyle! Again, this isn’t a diet. This isn’t about segmenting your plate or counting carbs. This is building balanced meals with those core macronutrients—fats, protein, and carbohydrates.

To make fats 70% of your macronutrient intake, choose filling whole-fat foods and healthy oils.

These are going to be those rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Remember, not all fats are created equal, and foods high in trans fats are the ones you want to avoid.

Do you know what helps you burn fat? Lean muscle! Do you know how you build lean muscles? Protein! That’s why protein should make up 20% of your macronutrient intake. Since the energy in protein burns slower than carbohydrates, you feel satisfied longer and experience fewer cravings.

To keep your body in a fat-burning state of ketosis, you want to avoid carbs, which are metabolized into glucose. When there’s too much glucose in your blood stream, ketosis can’t happen, and that means no energizing ketones! So only 10% of your macronutrient intake should be carbs, primarily from non-starchy vegetables.
