Dr. Raman's Nutritional Ketogenic Diet makes you feel full despite having fewer calories while also providing you with more energy. Over 20 peer-reviewed studies show that this type of plan can help you lose weight and improve your health. The ketogenic program involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat. The reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis, and when this happens, your body becomes incredibly efficient at breaking down and burning fat for energy.
By products of this fat breakdown are called ketones. It's important to monitor ketones. Our medical staff will assist you with the process of measuring the level of ketones in your urine and in your blood to determine if you are in ketosis. One of the most significant benefits of Dr. Raman's Keto diet is that it promotes fullness. Carbohydrates are metabolized through the body in 2-4 hours while protein and fat take 4-8 hours. You will have fewer cravings and feelings of deprivation.
A very low-carb program lowers your levels of the fat-storing hormone insulin, allowing your fat deposits to shrink and release their stored energy. This process causes you to want to consume fewer calories than you expend – without hunger – and lose weight.
