Ketosis is A Normal Part of Our Daily Cycle…
Every night the body starts generating ketones.
However, forcing the body into LONG-TERM ketosis causes some things to watch out for, which is the reason ketogenic nutrition plans were originally intended to be medically supervised…
Some adverse effects reported from long term exposure are…
- Acute pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas)
- Metabolic acidosis (too much acid accumulation in the body)
- Kidney stones (in 6% of keto dieters)
- Cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat)
- Withered bones (this is breaking news from a new study)
- Nutritional deficiencies (I’ll cover a few big ones in a sec)
Also, self-reported negative symptoms of long term keto include…
- bad breath (reported by 63% of keto dieters including me)
- headaches (in 51% of keto dieters)
- hair loss (in 10% of keto dieters)
With regards to the nutritional deficiencies keto is often low in fibre, thiamin, folate, potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron and vitamins A, E and B6.
Keto is also associated with depression and sleep disruption since low dietary carbohydrates often causes a decline in serotonin.
And then there’s the disruption in Thyroid hormone caused by a deficiency in Essential Carbs…
That’s the one they call the “thermostat hormone” and it’s why I felt cold and lethargic when I tried the full-time Keto Diet.
Worse… it’s one of the critical hormones directing weight loss…
So when it’s messed up, it’s nearly impossible to burn belly fat even on the most restrictive diet.
In fact, researching how to rev up Thyroid hormone to lose weight faster is what led me to discover Essential Carbs in the first place.
When all the weight loss benefits of “ketosis” can be had in only half a day — while enjoying the rest of the day to eat normally — why would anyone subject themselves to all the risks?
Which is why I decided to simply call my weight loss system Half Day Keto.
Because we get all the benefits of ketosis while only spending half the day “dieting.”
And since we’re only “dieting” half the day, it’s easy to stick to it for life. Because we’re not hungry all the time.
And we no longer have to yo-yo from one diet to the next because it’s a long term lifestyle.
It may be slow and steady compared to “extreme” diets, but the results are designed to last a lifetime.
This “Half Day Keto” Strategy Works For Anyone Who Loves Food And Who Wants To Finally Enjoy Their Ideal Weight WITHOUT Feeling Deprived, Lethargic and Hungry All The Time
