Please Explain Keto


#1

Please explain scientifically why many experts claim keto diets prime your fatcells to be more sensitive. I can never find any research on this.


#2

anyone out there?


#3

i think this is what you're asking: why are keto diets supposed to help you lose fat?

-a: when the body is in a starved or low carb state, the production of ketones is increased. since ketones are made from the breakdown of fats, it will increase fat catabolism.


#4

Ketones are not purely indicative of adipose fat utilization, it can be all provided from dietary fatty acids.

Keto diet=an acidic body + muclse loss.Did before and it's not good when trying to build muscle,in my opinion.Atleast go with something like carb cycling.
