The Ketogenic Diet Vs The Atkins Diet: Is Ketosis Better Than Atkins?
It’s not uncommon for the ketogenic diet and the famous Atkin’s Diet of the 1990’s to get lumped into the same conversation as one and the same.
But are they actually different, and is one healthier than the other? Which is more impactful over the long term?
There are definitely differences between the two diets, and the real comparison might surprise you! But first, let’s step back and look at them individually.
The Ketogenic Diet
The ketogenic diet was founded all the way back in 1924 by Dr. Russell Wilder at the famous Mayo Clinic. The diet was initially used because it was discovered to be highly effective in treating epilepsy.
The principles of the ketogenic diet are based on eating a specific percentage of macronutrients: high fats (60%), adequate protein (35%), and low carbohydrates (5%), to force the body to use what are called “ketone bodies” for energy.
In the absence of carbohydrates for an extended period of time, our liver converts fats into fatty acids and ketone bodies, also just simply called “ketones.” Ketones can then be processed into ATP, which is the energy currency of the cells.
Now, an elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood leads to a state known as nutritional ketosis.
The Benefits of the Ketogenic Diet
There are several ways the ketogenic diet can help the health and lifestyles of those who follow it. Here are some of the biggest advantages:
Blood Sugar Stabilization
The ketogenic diet actively helps to lower glucose levels and improve insulin resistance. Without having frequent carbohydrate intake, blood sugar levels can stabilize more rapidly.
Ketogenic diets can also be very effective for fat loss because they ultimately reset your body’s “enzymatic machinery” to burn fat as its primary fuel source in the absence of carbohydrates. This makes the diet extremely effective for getting lean.
In a recent study on the effects of a ketogenic diet over a 24-week period, it was discovered that patients in the low-carbohydrate group lost more fat, had a greater decrease in triglyceride levels, and had higher high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels.
Bodybuilders preparing for competitions (and people on weight loss journeys) who need to yield quicker-than-normal results opt for the keto diet because of its low carb intake — around 30 grams of net carbs per day.
Ketogenic diets can also be very powerful for exercise advantages. You need less oxygen to make energy (ATP) from ketone bodies than from carbohydrates, so the demands for oxygen are much less when exercising. This can help drastically increase endurance performance benefits.
Since ketone bodies easily cross the blood-brain barrier, your brain can use them efficiently for energy, leading to sustained mental performance advantages as well.
The downside to the ketogenic diet is that you have to measure often to be sure you’re in nutritional ketosis (burning ketone bodies for energy). Simply eating a lower carbohydrate diet usually isn’t enough, as your body can use protein and muscle tissue and turn them into carbohydrates.
Therefore, your diet choices have to be very calculated and specific. There are some supplements that help you get into ketosis immediately. If you don’t have those, you may need to test your ketone levels and measure your food intake very closely.
- Ketone bodies increase physical performance
- Ketosis leads to efficient fat loss
- Ketone bodies (ketones) improve mental performance
- Many other health benefits
- Diet can be somewhat restrictive if not taking supplements
- Have to measure food if not taking supplements
- Typically have to measure if you’re in or out of ketosis in the beginning
We have more information in these posts: What is the Ketogenic Diet? and What is Ketosis?. Moving on though!
The Atkins Diet
Now that we’ve established what the ketogenic diet is, what’s all the fuss about the Atkins Diet? The Atkins Diet began a media storm when it initially came out, prompting men and women alike to follow its regime of supposedly effortless fat loss and promises of better health.
The diet is the product of Dr. Robert Coleman Atkins, an American physician and cardiologist who developed a diet severely restricting carbohydrate intake.
Benefits of the Atkins Diet
The Atkins Diet is one of the most famous “fast track” diets around and claims that you can lose a considerable amount of fat quickly by eating as much protein and fat as you want — as long as you avoid foods high in carbs.
The diet claims to have been proven in over 80 clinical studies. Of course, restricting your calorie intake so much will have your body burning through it’s fat stores at an accelerated rate anyway, meaning there’s nothing complex about this system in a theoretical sense.
Comparing Atkins to Keto
The Atkins Diet differs from the keto diet in that Atkins has an “introductory” phase where the dieter follows very similar nutrient ratios on the ketogenic diet. During this introductory phase on Atkins, carb intake is set at roughly 15-30 grams per day maximum, which helps to promote fat burning within the body instead of using glycogen for energy.
This is what ultimately leads to the state of ketosis achieved when following the ketogenic diet. The Atkins diet differs in that the dieter is actually able to introduce more carbohydrates (albeit still a very limited quantity) once this initial introduction phase has come to an end.
The initial results for those on Atkins were promising for a low carbohydrate diet because of lowering blood sugar, but they weren’t getting all of the benefits of the ketogenic diet.
Plus, when too much (an unlimited amount) of protein is consumed, your body can convert it to carbohydrate to be used for energy, which can stall long-term progress and not lead to any of the benefits that you get out of using ketone bodies for energy on the keto diet.
The Atkins Diet also fell out of popularity after reports that many people were getting sick, gaining weight over the long term, or increasing their blood lipid profile.
There was a heavy encouragement on the Atkins Diet that you could eat whatever you wanted and in whatever amount as long as it wasn’t carbohydrates. This lead to people overeating massive amounts of low-quality food, which lead to health problems.
Atkins Diet Pros
- Shows significant weight loss results.
- Reduces hunger and cravings like most low carb diets.
- Includes all food groups in the two last stages, so it can be more sustainable.
- Atkins 40 is safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women.
Atkins Diet Cons
- More guesswork and carb counting.
- Dehydration risk in the early stages.
- A high risk of nutrient deficiency in the early stages if no multivitamins are used. One study found the Atkins diet (in the strict low carb stage) provided 100% sufficiency for only 12 out of 27 essential micronutrients[*].
- The most deficient micronutrients are Vitamin B5, B7, D, E, choline, calcium, chromium, copper, iron, iodine, potassium, magnesium, molybdenum, sodium and zinc[*].
Keto vs Atkins – Which is Better?
At face value, the keto diet and Atkins seem to be pretty similar, since they both focus on low carb — and that’s where people get confused. But as you now know, there are big differences in outcome from each.
The ketogenic diet is a very precise way to eat to change your metabolism and what your body uses for energy. Although it comes with the inconvenience of measuring food and tracking ketone levels, there are now supplements that drastically aid with this, and the results are invaluable for your health and wellbeing.
While the Atkins diet is very easy to follow, it has some true health risks and may not bring the same drastic benefits one can expect from following the more stringent guidelines of the ketogenic diet.
So, when considering the argument of ketosis versus Atkins, it’s a pretty clear choice that ketosis offers much better longer term health benefits once you get used to implementing it in your life.
Ketosis is now easy
Lose weight and obtain optimal overall health — in an easy and natural way.
What to read next:
I have been on a Ketosis diet for 2 1/2 weeks and am feeling great but when I tell people they said it sounds like a Atkins diet.
Remember that it is not all about physical appearance.
This article is great on explaining the differences. I feel great and hope other people try it.
Hi Eugene thank you for your note. It can be pretty tough to explain the differences in conversation, but boy are the results different (at least in our experience). Glad you feel great. Keep rockin’ it!
I tend to disagree with your explanation of Atkins. It was never proposed to eat unlimited amounts of protein. Have you read his book? The increase in carbs after 2 weeks was to establish a maintenance level after one has achieved weight loss. It was never intended as a strict regime. He also explains the metabolic advantage in relation to calories, which does not get any mention in your version. Lastly, the
most healthy approach to low carb/ high fat eating is probably that of Ken Rosedale, but he seems to be largely overlooked.
ATKINS: In the first 2 weeks = 20 gr carbs. After that you can increase little by little. Protein: between 100 and 200g of protein containing foods per meal (that’s really not unlimited amounts)… If the author of this article does not have time to read the book than just go to Atkins website… they explain everything there. I hate it when I read stuff that disinform… So please, do your research and write it again. I get that you are a Ketogenic diet fan… but that doesn’t mean you can give wrong information about other diets just to make a point. Have a great day everybody!
Points well made. I’d like to add that the “Original” books written by Dr. Atkins did NOT include all the processed crap the company is now selling. I used Atkins to lose 30 lbs I have maintained that loss and all the LCHF benefits for 4 years now. This reads more like an infomercial than a fact based comparison.
As far as The author writing for atkins possible weight gain bounce back in long term … any diet is the same way.. the keto diet is almost exactly the same. If you read the book, there are limits on the foods you can eat.. it is not a free for all. Just another diet trying to be the “NEW” diet of the century using a different name.
I completely agree. Be knowledgeable on the subject you are informing others about.
I agree Lou. Atkins sets you up for long time success but you do actually need to read the book! I have been on Atkins for 5 months with a total of 62 lbs lost. I feel great and look great but more importantly I have learned how foods effect my body and will forever be changed by this experience. It took me a few months to really have it down and knew how to be successful. It referring back to the book helped tremendously. I have nothing against Keto diet as I have never tried it. It this article seems very one sided.
Wow—-I been on Atkins 2 months for 25 lost but stuck now—what Atkins book do I need to read–Thanks;; oh–lost 3 inches in my waist also—lot more weight an inches to loose –hopefully; Thanks yall;
I think the old Atkins diet gave the perception of unlimited protein but we know that would be dangerous.
I totally agree with you, Lou. I DID read Dr. Atkins book, as well, from front to back cover. I read the 90’s version. He explains the entire diet in great detail. People don’t like to read anymore. So, the Atkins Diet seems always to be judged on people who may summarize the diet too much and make uneducated and poor choices. He explains about the super necessities of balance, water, vitamins and supplements. He also explains exercise in his books. After he passed, the Atkins company came out with all of these “convenience” foods and snacks. Forget those things and read his books. You can literally pick one up in paperback almost anywhere in secondhand stores or used book stores for a couple of bucks. Use common sense when making your food choices. It’s a no-brainer. 😉
I’ve read this article and still don’t get the difference. If you stop eating Keto and eat regular food you’ll gain just like Atkins. To me, there is no clear cut difference. Or at least none that I can tell from this article. Also, you don’t 50 grahams of carbs on Atkins until you’re in the maintanece phase. I’ve been told that’s it’s different because of Keto says you should eat fresh foods. But, the original Atkins diet, before he died and they started packaging all that crap said you shouldn’t eat that stuff anyay. So, is there really a difference? I can’t see one.
It’s basically the Atkins diet on a diet!
One diet is high fat which reduces insulin and the other is high protein. That is the biggest difference.
The difference is in the fat vs protein. Keto is higher fat and less protein than Atkins. Basically eating more avacado and oils maybe.
I’ve been on the Keto diet for 3 weeks now. I’m enjoying it it does seem similar to Atkins which I was on years ago. This seems more controlled and I’m not hungry or have the cravings as much. I hope when I weigh the end of the month. I will see a big difference.
How much weight have you lost so far? Also how do I get started on this.
I did the Atkins diet years ago lost a lot of weight. I like the idea of the ketone diets it sounds healthier. Being 54 i need healthier.I know all about ketosis everything I went to the doctor he’d tell me your in ketosis. But I like quick meals with few ingredients. All the recipies I’ve seen for keto are really involved. Do you have a quick meal guide. I prepare all my own meals I don’t like prospered foods.
Hi Yolanda. Couldn’t agree more with the quick meals with few ingredients. We have recipes coming out every other day or so now, and blog posts about really good grocery lists posted. Dr. Gustin also has some keto meal guided on his site http://www.dranthonygustin.com. I hope these help! 🙂 Tell us your results from keto v. Atkins too!
Although atkins is a low carb diet, the start or induction, was set up to induce ketogenic state, by keeping the carbs really low, (25 grams or less), then go through different stages, where you could add a small amount of carbs each week, provided you were still losing weight. If you stopped losing weight then you, dropped your carbs back down by 5 grams at a time, until such time as you started losing weight again. You did not have to be in a nutritionaly ketogenic state, but pobably were, as your carbs were so low. Robert Atkins also advised that most of your calories should come from fat, he encouraged eating fatty cuts of meat, with a couple of cups of salad, and a cup of vegetables, at the most, also stay away from most dairy as they contain too many carbs, but a small amount of fatty cheeses were allowed, so long as you could tolerate them. read his early book. It is all there, people just use, ignorance to excuse their eating atkin bars all day long, then trying to get away with other fake foods. Eat low carb (25 grams of carbs or less) depending on your bodies tolerance to carbs, fill up on fat, and make sure you get enough protein to keep your muscle. make your carbs vegetables (mostly green). you will lose fat weight very easily. Don’t eat fake foods!
Thank you to whoever shared this information. There are people with Epilepsy who are still in the dark, have tried everything they could think of with no success. I had to leave work this morning due to having fits. Desperate I looked up ‘diet for Epilepsy’, then by God’s grace, The Ketogenic diet sprung up on my screen. It sounds fantastic and I plan to start it immediately. All medication does is give side-effects and in a lot of cases make someone worse.
Jess, good luck from all of us. We hope it changes your life. We have family members who have dealt with similar struggles without knowing the ketogenic diet existed and offered a solution. Please stay in touch.
I too have epilepsy (10+ years). I was browsing a website one day for different methods of controlling it besides medicine and I had no idea that diet could play into it. I’ve been slowly changing my eating habits to go keto with my mom. It’s been about 2 weeks now.
It is important to dig deep in order to siphon reputable companies apart from the fly-by-night ones.
This can help people that are looking to lose weight.
We did the Atkins about 10 years ago and lost a lot of weight, but gained it back not long after stopping it (I don’t remember why). I told her keto is like the Atkins diet and she basically said “say no more” and was both feet in. I just hope she doesn’t think it IS the Atkins diet where you can eat anything you want as long as it’s not carbs.
I started the Atkins induction phase based on advice from my doctor. She told me that I really wanted to reach ketosis. After doing my own research, I have fully immersed myself to the keto way. It’s been one week, I’m down 11lbs. Other than the occasional headache, I feel really good!! I want to shout to the masses that “you’re doing it wrong”
I will never go back.
Woohoo Laurin! Shout it from the rooftops. It’s funny I think we all have to make the mistake of “doing it wrong” before we actually get into ketosis. Once we are there it’s pretty great 🙂
How do you really get into Ketosis! Not sure if I’m”doing it wrong” ?
Are you testing? Only ways to “do it wrong” is a) to not test ketone levels or b) to do keto alone. Check out our community group perfectketo.wpengine.com/fb
Whoah, this weblog is wonderful I really like studying your articles. Keep up the good work! You realize, lots of people are looking round for this information, you can help them greatly.
Raleigh, thanks for your note and encouragement, that is certainly the goal! 🙂
Loved this article. I too lost about 30 lbs on the Atkins Diet many, many years ago and gained it all back. I am now looking to try this Ketogenic Diet and am wondering what supplements you are talking about that can help you get into ketosis.
Awesome Kim! PK would love to help you get started with a gift. 🙂 email me at [email protected]
If you go back to your old way of eating you will also gain back any weight you will lose on Keto.
Pro tip: Atkins IS a keto diet.
Do you have to count calories on a keto diet?
Totally up to you! It depends on your goals and how targeted you want to be with fat loss or mass gain or maintaining your current body composition.
You have to cut calories to lose weight. I tried ketosis without cutting calories and I didn’t lose a pound.
I worry about heart and artery health with such high fat. Traditional “healthy” diets include lots of veg and some fruits. What about vitamins, if one cuts out most vegetables and fruits, both of which are carbs?
Great question Sally. With cutting out starchy vegetables and most fruits, it can be a slippery slope to a low vitamin unhealthy ketogenic diet. We stress doing quality keto by sourcing the best most nutritious types of fats and proteins, while also including leafy veggies and low sugar berries. It’s very possible to have an incredibly nutritious ketogenic diet. With your concern about the high-fat nature of keto, we have all been there and shared that same concern.
Hi, my wife and I have been on the keto diet for 29 days. She has lost 17 lbs and I have lost 22 lbs. We feel great. The main thing is to meal plan, it makes it alot easier. I’m at my goal weight but would like to add muscle. What is the best way to do this? Should I now change my macros percentages. And what are the supplements you had mentioned? Love the blog!
Thanks Chris, this is awesome! Congrats on the transformation. To add muscle we would first try increasing primarily you daily fat macros along with a slight increase in protein macros. Cater your workouts to more strength training exercises too (heavier weights, higher volume). See how you feel after one week of upping the fat and then iterate upwards from there. Please check back in! 🙂
The supplements are exogenous ketones, they are awesome for real pre-workout energy on the ketogenic diet. Hope they are great for you and your wife!
What about the New Atkins Diet… more Keto, I think (just starting book)
I am so frustrated with this diet and want to give up. I’ve only lost 4 lbs in 3 full very strict weeks. I am not sure what I am doing wrong? I may be eating too much protein
4lb in 3 weeks is significant progress 🙂 dramatic short term weight loss is not always the best idea. Stay dedicated and definitely tinker to see what works best for you for the long term
I’m doing the ketogenic diet for almost 4 weeks, not eating anything more than 20 carbs a day, I bought the keto stripes to test for ketosis and I couldn’t get passed neg reading…I started taking the powered drink supplements for three days now and the stripes are only reading trace amounts.. the taste wasn’t bad but it did give me some bowel issues.. am I doing something wrong?
Try to add in some MCT powdered form and this should help. Also take a look at how much protein you are eating currently.
You probably need to step it up with intermittent fasting. Just eat lunch and dinner with plenty of fat. Skip all snacks and I mean all snacks. The extra fat will satiate you long enough to fast between meals. If you eat at noon and 6pm, then that is 18 hour fasts every day. Anything over 11 hours is really good for you. Your baseline insulin is too high and this is the only way to get you past the sticking point.
I’m thinking the same thing — lots of changes but very little weight loss — it has been about a month and a half. I’m not convinced this is healthy for me. I’ve lost weight via other methods that seem more balanced. This one is taking SO long!
It’s possible to gain weight, maintain weight, or lose weight on a ketogenic diet. “Keto” is just a metabolic pathway. Have you tried using a keto calculator to set your goals and tracking how much you are eating?
Hi there. I have been ready to start the Atkins diet before coming upon your page, here. I do see the differences between the two and would love to get on the diet and lose weight to keep it off forever. I would like to build more muscle as well through this process and be healthy. How do I know how much protein to consume on a daily basis to be enough, but not too much?
Great question. I would suggest asking yourself what your goal is and then use a macro calculator. My favorite is at https://ketodietapp.com/Blog/page/KetoDiet-Buddy — see how it goes and then make adjustments from there. Hope this helps! 🙂
Atkins as it is today is ketogenic. You can’t just cut out carbs and eat all you want of fat and protein. This articles does not reflect the Atkins of today. Most of the carbs you do eat need to come from veggies and berries. Then high fat and moderate protein. You can’t just wing it when doing any keto diet. Decades ago Atkins was way more permissive about quantities, but it’s been a long time since those days. I think this article does a disservice to Atkins followers.
What do you think the differences are that aren’t being pointed out here?
I am sure this piece of writing has touched all the internet users, its really really pleasant post on building up new web site.
I was wondering is there an app for the phone that would help me count carbs? I was also wondering is this diet hard on the kidney and liver functions?
KetoDietApp and MyFitnessPal are our favorite. Definitely do your research and speak with a physician but a ketogenic diet tends to be less demanding on the kidney and liver.
I have been eating a ketogenic diet for about 5 weeks now (I have had a slip up but nothing crazy) and I love the results I’m getting. I do work out about 4-5 times a week and lost 15 pounds! I meal prep every week to be sure I’m eating properly and when I go out to eat with friends, I am very mindful and haven’t had trouble finding options in restaurants. Just about every place can give you some protein and a side salad with dressing.
I am curious about the supplements you were talking about above. I use a prework out and it’s been working for me but I’d like to find a more keto friendly one
Ketones preworkout is one of the most popular ways we see people using Perfect Keto.
Thus you have to be very careful before buying this supplement as many sellers conceal the proportion of all ingredients used.
I take a scoop plus about 5g of BCAA’s. Ketones before and during workouts give you energy and decrease need for oxygen. Hope they are great for you! 🙂
It’s going to be finish of mine day, however befpre ending
I am reading this greazt pkst to improve my know-how.
I am trying to work with a diet to help with diabetes. It seems everyone has an opinion- no fat, low carbs, no legumes, high fiber, lowfat, low calorie sweetners, eat more smaller meals throughout the day, no eating between meals…etc. From Atkins to Bernard to Fuhrman, it seems that basically cutting out carbs is the way to go. However, the first thing I was told when diagnosed with diabetes was to stay away from Atkins because it will shut down your kidneys. Then when the meds were not working well, I was told that I was not eating enough carbs for the meds to work. This is from the endocrinologist who’s main solution is to prescribe medication. Is there a perfect meal plan that is specifically targeted for the diabetic without endangering the kidneys? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Hi Steve, there is no perfect meal plan. Strive to eat a clean diet. You have to read labels. Avoid preservatives, color additives, toxic stabilizers, emulsifiers; processed refined foods such as white flour, sugar, breads and pastas. Eat foods with a short ingredient list. Avoid high fructose corn syrup, soda, foods not made by nature, etc. Eat whole grains-there is a seal , yellow and black that authenticates a whole grain. If your budget is limited, then make eggs, Kerri-gold butter, grass-fed/grass-finished meats, and dairy your target. Eat healthy fats in combination with lots of greens, vegetables, fruit. Observe portion sizes. Stay away from artificial sweeteners. It’s better to use small amounts of a natural sweetener,then adding more chemicals to your body. If you don’t have fluid restrictions, drink plenty of fresh water daily. You’re going to have to do research. You can download a list of of low-starch vegetables, and complex carbohydrates to round out your meals. Eat closest to nature and away from the food laboratory .The simplest medication is insulin. Your body makes insulin. The issue can be insulin resistance or your body is not making enough. Controlling you blood sugar will help protect your organs. Check blood sugars pre-meal and then two hours post-meal. Keep a log and work with your provider to help you with the correct amounts of insulin to cover your meals. Insulin is easy to use and safe. Diabetes takes work. It’s a life altering change but your life depends on it. I share your journey. Wishing you peace and health.
“Eat whole grains….” Grain are inflammatory for many humans.
“Eat healthy fats in combination with lots of greens, vegetables, fruit.” Eat non-root, non-starchy (above ground) leafy vegetables. Eat the lower sugar content berries and stay away from most fruits.
I, too, am diabetic, and I understand and share your concerns. I’ve found that being strict but not “uber” strict has been helpful. For instance, I simply don’t count vegetable carbs (of course, I avoid corn, potatoes, carrots, beets, etc., very high carb veggies). I count fruit carbs (and not many of those). I’ve eliminated all grains. I try to stay under 30 net carbs, and most of those come from vegetables. I’ve been fairly successful, but it has been slower for me than a lot of people. Keep it up and find your balance. It will come.
I looked at both diets, having heart disease in my family I chose my own diet
Carbs: under 20 grams per day
Low fat: as in I don’t put butter in my coffee
Protein: Chicken fish steak
Eight glasses of water a day some days more but never less
I began 9/14/2017 to date I have lost 50 pounds 12/27/2017
I no longer take metformin nor do I have acid reflux
I was in ketosis for three weeks presently I am fat adapted
Measured with blood ketone meter.
What ever works for you, do it, if it’s not working tweak it till it does!
Hello, just wanted to tell you, I loved this post.
It was funny. Keep on posting!
Pretty! This was an extremely wonderful article.
Thank you for providing this info.
Thanks for this article. I tried Atkins when it was a new fad, but had no success. Partly due to impatience on my part, and partly due to still being hungry. I think I just wasn’t eating enough. I’m about to turn 35 and have been on a mostly vegan diet for the past 6 months with pretty intense workouts. I was doing great, but just last month, I noticed that I was gaining weight instead of losing it. Food intake was the same, but beefed up my workouts. I am carb sensitive so, I was looking to try Atkins again, but then found your article and now I’m interested in exploring a ketone based diet. You mentioned supplements. Can you provide more info? I’m pretty Leary on taking supplements because I have hypothyroidism and take medication. As it is, I have a hard time keeping my metabolism in check and I’m afraid I might throw myself off with supplements, but I may just be misinformed. Your guidance is greatly appreciated!

I was hoping for a real comparison. Sadly this is not it. You have seriously misrepresented Atkins, so do I believe what you’ve presented about Keto? Back to do more research. Feeling like I’ve been up-sold. Sigh.
What do you feel like was misrepresented?
I was able to find good info from your blog articles.
Thanks for the awesome information! I highly appreciate it.

Can anybody please explain to me in simple terms: if I already have stored body fat to burn, how does eating more “high fat” help ?. Im soooo confused about this fact and have seen soooo many differing answers that I don’t know what to do anymore. Wont the newly eaten fat have to be used up first before my stored fat starts to be used up .
thanks in advance.
From the article: “In the absence of carbohydrates for an extended period of time, our liver converts fats into fatty acids and ketone bodies, also just simply called “ketones.” Ketones can then be processed into ATP, which is the energy currency of the cells.”
Our bodies can break down fat to use as energy when no carbohydrate is available.
Eating sugar (and not fat) makes us fat via insulin.
One needs to consider how we ate before we settled into an agrarian lifestyle. We were herbivores and carnivores and the latter we ate intermittently with periods of enforced fasting while we looked for food. In summer when the plants produced fruit which is in fact just a seed (nothing like the modern fruit which is loaded with sugars) we sought these out as they were sweet. This had a reason – seed dispersal and to put on fat for the colder winter when the food supply was more limited. Also, if we lived near a river fish supplemented our diets and if we lived on the coast, fish and other seafood supplemented our diets once again. Going hungry stimulated our brains to work out how to catch food.
The best part of the animal was the inner parts where the fat and vitamins were. Fat would have been our primary fuel. There were no bakeries around to give us carbs. Its probable that the meat was thrown to the dogs, which is why they evolved to eat meat.
So, off the carbs, plenty of above ground vegetables, lots of fat, some protein and intermittent fasting is the way to go, with the occasional pig out.
Keto folks need to stress the requirement for ‘healthy fats’: grass fed / ocean fed animal fats, olive oil, coconut oil, and avocado oil.
I want to try the keto diet, but can someone please tell me the difference between the proteins and the fat as far as eating?
I did the Atkins diet years ago, but very interested in the keto diet
Hey Donna, keto is similar to atkins but also different in terms of ratios of fat and protein. It’s a low-carb, moderate protein, high fat diet. I would definitely recommend checking out the starter guide here: https://www.perfectketo.com/guide/ultimate-start-guide-ketogenic-diet/ to get a better idea of how it works.
Hi, I love the post. Thanks for sharing.Very inspiring!
so i have not done any diet program but would like to try the keto diet. i am working out and lifting weights so with this diet will i have the energy to do it.i read it gives u nausea and all.
I did the Adkins diet about 6 years ago and did realize significant weight loss. I just started back on Adkins and have found the meal plans to have evolved in a positive way. You are NOT encouraged to consume all the fat and protein you want. Quite the opposite. The Adkins meal plans I am following have very specific weights and amounts of fats, proteins and carbs that are suggested and recommended. I was never into their processed snacks and meals. It seems healthier to make your own out of real food. After researching both diets, I truly don’t see a heck of a lot of difference between the two. Pick whichever one works for you.
There are different ‘ketogenic’ diets; none should be considered ‘moderate’ protein. The easiest keto diet is simply 2/3 healthy fats and 1/3 equally divided between protein and carbs.
Thank you. Let’s begin to read more. With love.
First time to try dieting and decided on this ketogenic diet after seeing good results for a friend. Been at it for almost 2 weeks and so far seeing good results; dropped at least 1 dress size, not feeling hungry a lot unlike before and increased energy overall. Realized I was already doing intermittent fasting before this diet and I guess that’s a good and effective combination. Trying not to overanalyze and still learning about the diet but so far so good:)

How To Take Apple Cider Vinegar For Weight Loss
A Look At Some Of The Many Health Benefits Of ACV
There are quite a number of scientific reasons behind apple cider vinegar’s ability to suppress fat gain more effectively than just eating raw apples.
Science taught us that you need acids to breakdown protein.
Science also taught us that proteins are the building blocks of the growth hormone.
By increasing acid presence in your stomach, you will improve your chances of a thorough digestion and at the same time improve the availability of key hormones in the body.
Benefit #1 – Putting Your Protein to Good Use
Apple cider vinegar stimulates digestion of protein from which we get the growth hormone.
Growth hormone works like jet fuel – it re-awakens your body and gets your metabolism ticking.
You feel energetic and burn more calories even when resting. This is a great health benefit of apple cider vinegar and its exactly how it gets you moving in the right direction.
It also improves digestion, reducing the amount of time food (and particularly fatty food) spends in your digestive tract. If fats remain in your intestines for too long, it goes without saying that more unwanted fat will find its way to the unwanted areas.
Vinegar works from the beginning of your digestive process by stimulating your appetite and increasing your hunger pangs. Normally, you wouldn’t think of this as a good strategy if you are on a weight loss path. But combining the apple cider vinegar diet and Garcinia Cambogia increases your chances of gaining interest in whole foods.
Garcinia generally reduces your cravings for sugars and sweet things – and therefore with a little bit of self-control, partaking of this duo would certainly work positively.
Benefit #2 – Apple Cider Vinegar Is a Fire-Starter
It’s virtually impossible to lose weight if you don’t have the necessary fire in you. And what ignites fire?
Now what the apple cider vinegar weight loss recipe does is that it improves uptake of iron mineral.
Iron is an essential component that carries oxygen to your body cells and binds it there. It is this unique ability that makes apple cider vinegar a key benefit to losing weight and of healthy living.
Moreover, by increasing oxygen utilization in the body it enhances energy consumption which leads to faster breakdown of glucose. The faster glucose is broken down to meet immediate body energy needs, the more calories you burn.
Benefit #3 – A Suppressed Appetite For Sodium
It’s one thing to burn calories; it’s another to control your bodily needs for sodium. As you might be aware, sodium is a key component of the junk food we eat in town. This partly explains why you frequently feel the urge to run to McDonalds to grab a bite.
It’s because your body has an innate demand for sodium ions.
On the flipside though, sodium promotes water retention in the body which again favors weight gain. So you need to find a solution to this.
Either you forego your cravings for junk food or you find a healthy substitute.
Talking about finding a healthy substitute, that’s exactly where Garcinia Cambogia And Apple Cider Vinegar together come in handy.
Both are rich in potassium ions.
Potassium ions can work as a healthy substitute to sodium ions. In fact, try replacing your table salt with Braggs apple cider vinegar. Use it to season foods you would otherwise need to salt.
Benefit #4 – Detoxifying Power
What could happen if you pushed your body to the limits?
Well, most of the time our body operates at below average rates because of toxins which build up over time. The digestive system itself is quite long, and many times if falls prey to common health problems like constipation, indigestion and even diarrhea.
Likewise, your entire body system is long and complicated. We produce toxins through what we eat and drink – and the more toxins you have the more likely you are to gain weight.
Garcinia Cambogia and braggs apple cider vinegar together are both quite useful as cleansing agents.
AVC by itself cleanses the digestive system by binding toxins and guiding them out of your body through feces.
Beyond the digestive tract, a bit of vinegar can go a long way in cleansing your colon, kidneys and liver.
As for Garcinia, the more you take it, the more your blood system is cleansed.
A cleansed system translates to better uptake of nutrients which in turn boosts your metabolism. The goal is to free up your choked up system so that it can resume optimal operations and burn fat faster, naturally.
How to Use Organic Apple Cider Vinegar and Garcinia Cambogia Extract To Lose Weight Naturally
Having the right map does not always guarantee that you’ll arrive at your destination. It’s important to understand how to navigate so you can achieve your end goal.
Same case, having apple cider vinegar and Garcinia does not guarantee weight loss.
