nutritional ketosis fat burning metabolic state

Nutritional ketosis is the metabolic condition in which our body burns fat as the main source of fuel, instead of glucose. Man when subjected to a ketogenic diet substantially convert itself from a “sugar burner” to “fat burner”. This is achieved by reducing the consumption of carbohydrates, increasing the fat intake, and the consumption of only a sufficient amount of protein to meet the body’s needs.

The term nutritional ketosis invented by Dr. Stephen Phinney & Jeff Volek, two of the leading experts and researchers in the field of diet low in carbohydrates.

The classic ketogenic diet is a diet, high fat, very low concentration of carbohydrate, and sufficient protein (talking about “adequate” protein, is not “high” protein).
After the presentation of the Tube Diet using with zero fat and the results from prof. Cappello (Rome), there is much to be discused in relation to the amount of fat we eat in the ketogenic diet, the results and which of the ketogenic diets are ideal in slimming.
The ketogenic diet is not necessarily high in protein to be danger for kidneys.
