A diet high in fat and low in carbohydrates is a common recommendation for a Ketogenic diet. Because sugar and carbohydrates provide our body with a ready source of glucose, the Ketogenic diet does not allow our body to store those calories as fat. Instead, our body uses existing fat stores to produce energy and burn them off. Unlike many diets, a Ketogenic diet does not require you to completely eliminate your protein and fat intake.
In sports like rugby, soccer, and lacrosse, the glycolytic pathway is stressed more than in other sports. Athletes will likely experience decreased performance, as their body cannot store as much glycogen as it needs for a particular activity. Alternatively, they may be able to benefit from increasing their daily carbohydrate intake and training in ketosis. A few athletes may find the results of a Ketogenic diet beneficial in their chosen sports.
However, it is important to know that the absence of carbs from a diet can actually cause the body to lose water weight. A typical human body holds around four grams of water for every gram of carbohydrates consumed. By eliminating carbohydrates, you can shed that excess water and boost your performance and aesthetics. Ketogenic diets can help you lose excess water weight, but there are also risks of overtraining and causing muscle damage. This article will explore the pros and cons of Ketogenic diets.
Although a Ketogenic diet can have negative long-term effects, it is safe for some people to follow. It can also benefit people with higher risk for certain disease conditions. Because fat is the primary energy source in our bodies, it is important to choose the right kind of fat for your needs. Different types of fat have different effects on our health in the long-run. For individuals with a disease that interferes with normal protein and fat metabolism, a high-fat diet may be a safe option.
