Have you heard of Ultra Keto? Do you have a lot of weight to lose? Have you been on every diet out there, lost weight and then gained it all back and then some? Then let’s talk Ultra Keto.
Low Carb is considered keeping your daily carb intake to below 50 grams. Keto is considered keeping your daily carb intake to below 25 grams. Ultra Keto takes the tracking out of the mix and adds in fasting.
The science behind a keto diet slashes intake of foods that turn into blood sugar. With little sugar to use as fuel, the body must turn fat into ketones to use as an alternative fuel. Studies show this spikes fat burning up to 900%. Plus, as blood sugar drops, so do levels of insulin, a hormone that locks us in fat-storage mode. Read “Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It” by Harvard-trained science writer Gary Taubes.
Also “The less insulin you make, the more fat you burn,” says Obesity Code author Jason Fung, MD. That’s where fasting comes in. Even low-carb meals trigger the release of some insulin. Says Dr. Fung, “To lower insulin as much as possible, keto plus fasting is the ultimate combination!”
Fasting triggers our bodies to get rid of cellular waste and damaged cells. Kind of like rebooting your computer to get all the proper downloads, etc. you are to have on it. As a result of this fasting, metabolism increases, energy amps up “and overall health is rejuvenated,” notes Dr. Fung.
Some ways to fast would be intermittent fasting every day or every other day – nothing to eat after 8pm until around 11-12 noon. Other ways to fast would be to eat one big meal a day in the evening, or to reboot with a 60 hour fast.
Sometimes this just means you have to listen to your body and learn to only eat when your body tells you you need food. If you go to find something to eat in the kitchen – ask yourself if you’re hungry or are you bored?
When I first started doing intermittent fasting – The first day I didn’t even think of food, the second day I realized that I eat in the morning more because I was always taught that breakfast is the most important meal of the day – it gets your metabolism started. Ha ha I didn’t realize that I could teach myself that breakfast can be at noon! I also never do intermittent fasting without taking my ketone supplement.
I hope you all have a fabulous week and experiment with intermittent fasting to see how you like that. Next week we are going to discuss doing a keto reboot which is a 60 hour fast.
