Ketogenic diet helps cognition, obesity: Good fat, high protein, low-carb diet

 Does is ever seem that there's always a new "big thing" in diets? Foods take turns coming fire--fats, sugar, meat, carbs--then later it switches and you hear another food is the problem. This revolving door is part of why obesity is at 38%. Folks have given up trying to find a diet that works. But there might finally be a definitive answer--a ketogenic diet is THE diet it seems. Everywhere you look, some celeb has lost weight on a ketogenic diet. The University of Alabama at Birmingham reported Dec. 18, that the ketogenic diet has been shown to treat cognition problems, particularly in elderly HIV patients.

Originality the ketogenic diet was used only to treat epilepsy. Now, thanks to advocacy from celebrities who've had surprisingly high weight loss with it, the ketogenic diet is in vogue. Global New Wire reported Nov. 12, that medical experts are finding the ketogenic diet--which is essentially a high fat, high-protein, low carb diet--burns fat and aids weight loss. And not just a little weight loss. Results from the ketogenic diet have been dramatic. Some experts question whether ketosis is dangerous for the body. But it may actually be healthy. What's ketosis? It just means the body no longer gets many carbs and so doesn't depend on carbohydrates for energy. Needing fuel to burn, the body seeks out deep tissue fat that is buried in cells, around internal organs and in the belly, thighs, buttocks, hips and under the arms. With 2/3 of the U.S. overweight and 35-percent obese, maybe it's time to rethink some of these less traditional diets, medical advisers say.  Ketogenic diet: High-fat, high-protein, low-carb diet aids fat burn, weight loss | Examiner.com
