The Ketogenic Diet For Beginners

Keto Diet Tips and Macros

Just what is the “keto” diet?

At One Fitness Camp we don’t believe in extreme diets since successful and healthy weight loss is achieved by long term lifestyle and nutritional changes that don’t deplete your body from nutrients. However as the ketogenic diet is currently trending we will review the basics and analyze what is the keto diet.

If you’ve noticed a lot of press about a “new” diet recently, one that supposedly will make you lose weight quickly and keep it off, you’ve likely been hearing about keto. A ketogenic diet is one that eschews carbs and sugar for meat, eggs, and vegetables. Though it’s similar to a “paleo” diet, keto allows high-fat dairy, making cheese and cream accessible, which for some people makes it easier to follow.

The thing, however, is that keto isn’t “new” by any stretch – in fact, doctors have been using a ketogenic diet plan to treat childhood epilepsy for over 100 years. Not only does it effectively and safely treat the epilepsy, but the kids are healthy, with no ill effects from the lack of carbs.

So then what does the keto diet entail?

It requires you to restrict the intake of carbs below 50 grams a day. This restriction induces a state called “ketosis” in the human body, where your body shifts from using glucose as fuel to using ketones. Ketones themselves are derived from the breakdown of triglycerides (fat, essentially). Your entire body can utilize these ketones for energy, and in fact some parts actually function better in ketosis, like the brain and heart.

The primary benefit of the state of ketosis is that your body utilizes its fat stores more efficiently. When your body is a sugar burner, it keeps insulin levels high, storing most fat and much of the carbohydrate you eat. This creates a cycle of weight gain that can eventually lead to “insulin resistance”, and eventually to type 2 diabetes.

When your body is a fat burner, it gives insulin a chance to reset, and your body’s insulin response to return to normal. As cells become less insulin resistant, systemic inflammation goes down. This reduces the biomarker A1C, which when elevated is a classic hallmark of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, and is generally a bad thing. In addition, as a fat burner, your body will naturally decrease hunger, because the cycle of sugar spiking insulin is what drives out-of-control hunger and leads to weight gain. Without that cycle, your body’s natural hunger cues can return, making it easier to eat less, and begin the process of losing excess weight and healing.

Ketogenic Diet Breakdown

This sounds great, how do I start?

Since keto is about restricting your carb intake, the best place to begin is by cutting out carbs. This can be done gradually, or drastically, and both approaches have benefits. Regardless of how quickly you lower your carb intake, the target amount is around 50 grams a day.

While any diet that is under 100 grams of carbohydrate a day will eventually put you in sustained ketosis, restricting your carbs under 50 grams virtually guarantees that you will be in ketosis quickly and reliably. In addition, 50 grams is restrictive enough that you won’t be tempted to add in sugary treats, a random potato, or a slice of bread – the limit simply doesn’t allow for that.

Gradual carb reduction

If you want to lower your carbs over a longer period of time, the best thing to do is figure out your average carb intake for a day, and then lower it by 20 or 30 grams a day over the course of 7 days. This helps you ease into what can be a jarring shift in your eating habits, especially if you’re very carb addicted.

The benefits to gradual carb restriction are:

  • Easier to maintain initially
  • Reduction in the “keto flu” symptoms (more on those in a later paragraph)
  • Better adjustment to ketosis if you’re an athlete

You won’t see the quick results this route, but in some cases, gradual carb restriction just works better for some people.

Drastic carb reduction

For most people who start a low carb, ketogenic diet, the route they follow is one where they drastically restrict carbs immediately, and keep their intake low for at least 2 weeks. A maximum amount of carbs around 20 grams a day for 2 weeks, in a period called “induction”, is the standard. While the quick, sudden reduction in carb intake can be jarring, it’s exceptional in producing the benefits of ketogenic eating in a short time. The benefits include:

  • Very fast weight loss – sometimes 15 pounds in two weeks
  • Reduction in bodily inflammation
  • Quicker transition to being “fat adapted”, where your body prefers fat as fuel (fat burner mode)

The best way to officially start should look like this:

  • Map out a meal plan that allows you to stay around or below 50 carbs a day
  • Choose your start date, and the night before, stop eating at 8 or earlier
  • Add in about 30 minutes of exercise a day, even if it’s just walking. This helps your body burn up stored glycogen in your liver and muscles, making ketosis happen faster
  • Remove all temptation foods from your house – breads, pastas, or anything else you might eat that’s carb-laden
  • Remember that ketogenic eating is high fat, low carb, moderate protein, so don’t be afraid of butter, coconut oil, olive oil, etc. Replace your old vegetable oils with healthy fats

When your body is a sugar burner, it will convert some of the carbs you eat into glycogen to store in your liver and muscles. During the first couple weeks of keto, it will burn up all the glucose in your blood, then scour out the glycogen you’ve stored. Once that’s gone, your body will release a lot of water, so you’ll be heading to the bathroom a lot. This is because glycogen is stored in your body within water. Once you don’t have glycogen to store, your body doesn’t need all that excess water, so you’ll notice a lot of reduction in bloating. This will also cause some dramatic weight loss, and even though it’s all water, you’ll still lose quite a bit of fat those first 2 weeks, so it’s great encouragement.

What are the benefits of the state of ketosis

Ketosis, in addition to being the most efficient fat-burning state your body is capable of, has an array of positive effects on nearly every system within you. This makes it a powerful tool for overall health, even if you don’t have excess fat to lose.

Because processed foods, particularly sugar, cause system-wide inflammation, the most obvious benefit is that by cutting them out, you reduce that inflammation. While most immediately this leads to a reduction in symptoms from gout, arthritis, potentially fibromyalgia, and other inflammatory diseases, it also has a dramatic effect on diabetes and heart disease as well. Lowering that inflammation means your body can heal your veins and arteries, where plaque builds up and can lead to heart attacks or strokes.

The state of ketosis also stops the cycle of blood sugar and elevated insulin. This can treat or even reverse type 2 diabetes, and make type 1 more manageable.

A keto diet is also incredibly muscle-sparing. Typically, your body will scour itself for glucose if you’re in sugar-burning mode, which can lead to muscle breakdown when you restrict calories. Keto avoids this by making fat your primary fuel source; it doesn’t need to break down muscle for glucose, because it needs so little of it.

Some tips to get started with the Keto diet

Keto provides a wealth of benefits for weight loss and health, so you’re probably excited to get started. Here are a few parting tips to make transition easier!

  • Stay hydrated – your body purges a lot of water on keto, so make sure you’re drinking it all day!
  • Salt is your friend – because your body purges all that water, you’ll lose sodium. This can account for the “keto flu” people experience. The headaches, fatigue, and nausea can be alleviated to a degree by increase your salt intake
  • Don’t be afraid of fat! Add coconut oil, butter, ghee, bacon grease, and other healthy saturated fats to your diet
  • If you’re not hungry, don’t eat! We’ve been trained to believe we need 3 meals a day, but if you aren’t hungry, your body will simply use stored fat for energy.

Weight Loss Camp vs. Weight Loss Programs

No comments

Choosing to attend a weight loss camp for adults or a weight loss program is a life changing decision. However with so many options and opinions making a decision as to which is the best fit for you can be a daunting and difficult one. In this article we are going to explore the primary differences between a weight loss program and a weight loss camp as well as the overwhelming benefits of a weight loss camp.

What is the difference between a Weight Loss Program and a Weight Loss Camp?

Lets begin by understanding what is a weight loss program. A weight loss program is a medically-supervised program that fuses healthy decisions, workout regimens and a specific diet to achieve your weight loss goals. Unlike a weight loss camp, while under a weight loss program you see your clinician only a few times a month. This is exactly where a weight loss camp edges out the weight loss program. By being under constant watch of clinicians, fitness instructors, dietitians and counselors your results are amplified in a shorter period of time.

Who Qualifies for a Weight Loss Camp

Whether you have been diagnosed as medically obese or simply need to shed a few extra pounds, weight loss camps offers many benefits. Many of our camp attendees need to lose weight because they are suffering from life threatening sicknesses. Losing weight may lead to an improvement in the following health conditions:

  • High cholesterol levels
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart attacks and strokes
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Certain types of cancer

What are the primary benefits of a Weight Loss Camp

Consider the following benefits when deciding whether you are better off attending a camp or following a traditional weight loss program when trying to lose weight:

Joining a Community of Individuals with Similar Struggles and Goals
According to the American Journal of Medicine, people who take part in community-based weight loss programs lost more weight than those who were trying to lose weight by themselves. Weight loss camps can be a great choice for individuals to find a common bond with others in a similar same path. The reason for this is that there are participants from all walks of life that come to camp with a wide variety of goals. Some may need to lose a lot of weight, some may need to lose a smaller amount. Some are trying to lose weight for their wedding or some need to lose weight because they have a life threatening illness. They all share a common goal, they are all here with a purpose. They all want to lose weight and improve their health. Finding individuals such as this enables participants to form bonds and friendships with individuals that have similar goals and struggles to their own. This is something that has the power to greatly transform their ultimate outcome with their weight loss goals.

Weight Loss Camps are Fun and provide an opportunity to relax
At One Fitness Camp we make weight loss fun. You wont be in a treadmill for 2 hours! At One Fitness Camp, we believe variety is key to driving results. Our exercise program has been specially designed to incorporate rigorous strength-training and cardio sessions while building endurance and flexibility. You will participate in a a variety of fun and fat burning activities like skiing, swimming, boxing, hiking, spinning and much more. Every day will be different and everyday will be fun. We want you to feel motivated by what you do, not bored by the same routine. Additionally all the fun elements serve as another opportunity for bonding, self reflection, and growth.

Venturing to a tranquil place can achieve a great deal for the mind. This is another reason that opting to try a new environment will be a great benefit to those that are trying to lose weight. In between the various activities there will be time to relax and reflect, which will allow the participants to be in the right state of mind to achieve their objectives.

Exercise Education and Coaching
Many times, participants do not know how to exercise properly or they have not exercised in a considerable amount of time. Weight loss camps provide excellent instruction from certified professionals that will assist with a plan for exercise to produce results. What makes this even better is that each participant will receive a personalized exercise schedule. For this reason, participants receive a very valuable lesson that they have the power to integrate into their lives for many years to come.

Nutrition, Nutrition, Nutrition
Poor Nutrition is one of the primary causes of excessive weight gain. At One Fitness Camp Participants are able to take nutritional seminars with their peers in order to learn about proper nutrition fundamental to make a lasting difference in their lives. After these seminars, participants have the chance to meet privately to compose their own plan for success while dieting. These plans plant the seed for success because they ensure that the participant leaves with a strategy to integrate nutrition into their day-to-day lives. We make sure that when all participants go home they have a game plan to follow and the proper knowledge to make the right decisions.

Constant Support & Motivation in a Safe Environment
At a weight loss camp individuals will be able to benefit from the motivation of a group. Granted, there will be good days and bad days; however, the collective effort of the group will help those that are struggling stay with the program during the most difficult times. The motivation will not only come from the peers, it will also come from our friendly staff. Motivation is one of the most powerful forces that can transpire, which is one of the primary reasons that weight loss becomes possible at camps rather than during traditional weight loss programs.

During the first few days, it can be quite difficult to endure the change in lifestyle. The experts on staff will anticipate this and be there to cater to cravings and difficulties that tend to arise. These professionals will approach this in a supporting way. This is why it is highly beneficial to have the 24/7 support available in order to get through the first stages of making positive changes in one’s life.

One of the most difficult aspects of losing weight is feeling vulnerable. At One Fitness Camp, this will not be case. A safe environment has been be created where participants will be able to have the time that they need to face their battles without feeling concerned about what others think of them. A safe and friendly environment where you will not be judged!

How long is a weight loss camp?

At One Fitness Camp there are a variety of options depending on your availability and weight loss goals. For those that are looking to lose a considerable amount of weight, it is wise to attend the camp for several weeks in order to start implementing the new teachings with a solid foundation before returning to one’s day-to-day life. This is something that will prove to be quite valuable. That said, for those that merely want education and the chance to have a new life experience, they will find that one week short term durations are a good fit.

Losing Weight is not simple but very attainable

Losing weight is something that is far from simple. That said, many individuals do not possess the proper education to lose weight on their own. Many times, they require a helping hand and support system in order to have the best possible results. Furthermore, they require education on what foods/portions may or may not be healthy for their body type. This sort of guidance, combined with exercise tips, can make a positive difference in one’s results with weight loss. When researching the right weight loss camp for your particular situation or the situation of someone close to you, be sure to investigate the aforementioned aspects of each and every camp. Some camps are not the ideal fit, while others may be a more suitable choice. Additionally, be sure to consider the duration of the camp. The duration will be something that will determine the outcome of the weight loss results because the extended time in the care of the camp will lay the foundation for positive changes in diet and healthy life style. In terms of deciding between a camp and a traditional program for weight loss, attending a camp offers a far more personal experience that will lead to the required lifestyle change to achieve the weight loss objectives in the most productive way possible.
