What does a registered dietitian who has studied these diets have to say? The ketogenic diet limits carbs and protein in favor of high-fat foods, and adherents claim it can lead to rapid weight loss. That's because high-fat, low-carb diets cause your body to produce ketones-molecules normally produced during periods of low food intake or prolonged exercise. The body then uses these ketones, plus stored fat, as fuel. But many nutrition experts urge caution. Carbohydrate-rich foods like fruits and starchy vegetables benefit gut flora. Eliminating them could potentially cause harmful changes. Eating ayurvedicallly and in season provides the nutrition your body craves and needs to stay happy and healthy!
