Biohacker’s Guide to Ketosis corrects several of the myths, misconceptions, and fears that are associated with ketosis and the ketogenic diet. Ketosis is very natural for the body and part of normal metabolism. In other words, our bodies are “designed” to burn fat for energy and to store excess energy in the adipose tissue. The process is essential, particularly when there is insufficient energy available from food.
The ketogenic diet was used to treat epilepsy patients with very promising results until medication revolutionized the treatment and treatment through diet was largely forgotten. In the past 20 years, the ketogenic diet has again become popular and not just for epilepsy. Many clinics, for example, specialize in the strict dietary treatment of epilepsy and other conditions.
However, the main application of the ketogenic diet lies in the very effective weight management, autophagy and the activation of healthy lipid metabolism. That is why the ketogenic diet has seen exponential growth in popularity in recent years.
