How many times have we heard the infamous “eat your carbs speech” from our local high-school gym teacher?
The best thing to eat before you work out is carbs, right?
What would happen if we started to test the foundation on which a lot of us have built our bodybuilding careers? Maybe it’s time to give up carbs once and for all! And yeah bro, I mean ZERO carbs.
It’s time to say hello to the KETO diet!
Hello, Ketogenic Diet!
What is this ketogenic diet I keep hearing about? The ‘KETO diet’ is a high fat, high protein, incredibly low-carbohydrate diet. Sounds absolutely terrible right? It was pioneered in medicine and is used primarily to treat difficult-to-control epilepsy in children. This challenging diet forces our bodies to burn fats rather than carbs, putting us in a state of Ketosis.
What is ketosis?
The Ketogenic diet forces our bodies into a state of Ketosis. That means we convert body fat into our fuel instead of carbs. Burning fat? Sign me up!
It gets even better; ketosis has been linked to hundreds of other beneficial and scientifically backed studies as well.
- Extremely rapid weight loss
- Improved cognitive abilities
- Mental disease and cancer prevention
- Stress reduction
With all these obvious benefits, it’s a mystery why all meatheads don’t follow a strict Meat and Fat diet. After all, it’s meatheads, not carbheads. Plus, meatheads definitely need help in the brain department.
