Low carb, high fat (LCHF) diets, or very low carb, high fat (VLCD) diets are often referred to as a ketogenic diet. The ketogenic diet has been used for a long time to treat and reverse many diseases — for example, it has been very effective in treatment of epilepsy since the 1920s. But emerging research is showing that ketones can in fact do much more in the body, including significant benefits for Alzheimer’s and type 1 and 2 diabetes, cancer treatment and prevention, increased cognitive performance, more effective weight loss, improved athletic performance, and much more.
So should we all be following a ketogenic diet? Absolutely NOT! Some people have certain conditions or different gene types that will not allow them reaching a safe state of nutritional ketosis. Although most certainly everyone can see considerable benefits from eating whole foods and removing processed sugar from their diet.
But for a successful and safe ketogenic diet, you need someone to guide you and teach you about the possible difficulties, and what down-sides you might encounter. A ketogenic diet is a very effective tool for preventing, treating and healing many diseases, however it can also be a long-term lifestyle for maximizing your health. That’s why we call it Ketogenic Diet Lifestyle Coaching.
