Keto Diet Plan (Cyclic Ketogenic Diets) – the most effective dieting approach for achieving rapid weight loss, ultra low body fat percentages, with maximum muscle retention. Try the Keto Diet 7 Days in a row before making any initial conclusions. Keep in mind, as with all such general statements, there are some circumstantial exceptions. But when done right the keto diet generally works wonders, even for people experiencing limited results with other dieting plans.
Please Note: we report on all types of dieting and approaches to weight loss.
Essentially, a keto diet is a high fat, low carb approach to weight loss, which differs from other diets we’ve examined. We’re also testing out the meat based carnivore diet which we’ll report on as well.
Ketogenic Diets have seen trending spikes in the massive array of diet plans and has remained a tried and true way to lose body fat quickly and safely. Do your homework and pick what’s right for you.

The aim of a keto-diet is to keep the body in a constant state of Ketosis: an abnormal increase ketone in the body (Merriam-Webster). Ketone: any of a class of organic compounds (such as acetone) characterized by a carbonyl group attached to two carbon atoms (Merriam-Webster).
Simply Put: Ketogenic Dieting forces the body to burn fat for fuel, as opposed to glucose. This state is achieved, largely, by simply depriving the body of glucose by closely controlling nutritional intake within specific parameters, by avoiding carbohydrates.
Being in ketosis allows the body to process fat and use it as fuel in a way that no other state allows as easily. A major benefit of being in a state of ketosis is that excess ketones in the body are not harmful in any way whatsoever. Any ketones created in your body which are not needed are simply excreted through urine.
TIP: You can easily check to see if your body is in a state of ketosis by using urine testing strips in the morning.
TIP: Supercharge your Keto Diet Plan results by following a fitness training program or working with a personal fitness trainer.
Ketogenic Diet: How to Achieve Rapid Weight Loss
As your body adjusts to being in a state of ketosis it will actually prefer ketones to glucose. You’ll actually train your body to become efficient at staying in ketosis. This is the ideal state you want your body to be in 24/7.
For the majority of keto dieters, sugar cravings begin to fade away over time. Results can vary but some keto dieters, even those who have had a life-long ‘sugar tooth’ report no sugar cravings after as little as two weeks of ketogenic dieting.
Another benefit of ketogenic diet weight loss programs is being in a ketogenic state is very useful for controlling insulin levels in the body. Insulin is one of the substances in the body which makes you crave food, particularly foods high in sugar. Controlling insulin levels is one of the keys to achieving long term weight loss.
The majority of people who fully commit to a ketogenic nutrition guideline report that being in a constant state of ketosis makes them feel significantly less hungry than when they’re in a non-ketogenic state. It is much easier to stay on a diet plan – any diet – when you’re not constantly fighting cravings every step of the way.
Hunger and cravings are almost always the reason a person throws in the towel on a diet plan. With ketogenic dieting cravings and hunger pains aren’t an issue most of the time for almost all keto-diet participants.
The benefits of putting your body into a constant state of ketosis make a strong case of giving it a try.
Rest assured, if you do it right Ketogenic Dieting will work for you.
TIP: Try Keto Dieting for at least two weeks before drawing any initial conclusions. It will take your body a little time to regulate in ketosis. Everyone is different but ketogenic dieting is one of the fastest working diets out there.
