Interesting so let's get into its details. I should say it more as scientific details. So when cabs are low and fat is more our body enters a metabolic state called ketosis . Our body start converting fats into ketones. Wait! I know your question what is ketones? Right? Ketones are molecules that can supply high energy in brain.

Let’s Go there afterwards

Keto Diet and Weight Loss

Here is how it promotes Weight Loss:-

  • High Protein Intake:- Some keto diets lead to high protein intake which results in weight loss
  • Elimination of carb sources: - Limiting carb intake also limits our food options. This can decrease calories which helps in fat loss
  • Gluconeogenesis:- Our body starts transforming fat and proteins into carbs which decrease additional calories.
  • Improves insulin sensitivity:- Keto Diets can extremely improve insulin sensitivity which helps in improving the metabolism.
  • Reduced fat storage:- Some researchers have proven that keto diet may decrease the process of transforming sugar into fats.
  • Increases fat burning: - keto Diets rapidly increase the amount of fat you burn during exercise, rest and daily routines.

Keto Diets help you lose fats, preserve muscles mass and improve many markers of disease. Many Studies have Compared low fat diet to keto diet for weight loss and guess what Keto Diet is superior even when total calorie intake is matched. Let me tell you about one study in which keto diet people lose 2.2 times more than low fat diet people. Triglyceride and HDL cholesterol levels also improved.

Keto Diet and Metabolic Diseases

It helps in fighting metabolic disease like:-

  • High Blood Pressure
  • Abdominal Obesity
  • High levels of bad cholesterol
  • Low levels of good cholesterol
  • High Blood sugar levels


After only two weeks of this diet insulin sensitivity improves by 75% and blood sugar drops from 7.5 mmol /l to 6.2  mmol/l. So diabetics go for it. Say no to diabetes and yes to keto diet. It also help in decreasing triglyceride levels from 109 to 79 mg/dl after only 4 weeks.

For that you just need to read our blog and if you think you have this problem. Book a free consultation and we will help you out. Firstly let’s talk about what is Vitamin B-12?  Then I will tell you Why Indians are deficient of it? What is Vitamin B-12? Vitamin B-12 is a water-soluble vitamin like all other Vitamin B. This means it is dissolvable in water and can flow through your blood stream. One interesting fact is that you can store it in your body for up to 4 years. It is large and complex-structured vitamin. Excess of it is excreted as urine. Facts about Vitamin B-12 It is important for brain functioning. It can lead to neurological difficulties and anemia. People above 14 years of age should consume 2.4 mcg of it daily. It is available in meats. Why Vitamin B-12 is essential? Vitamin B-12 is essential for nerve tissue, brain function and producing RBCs. You require vitamin B-12 for normal functioning of nervous system. Even the cell metabolism is dependent on it. It plays a role in synthesis of fatty acids and energy production. It helps your body to absorb folic acid and you can easily release energy due to it.

Amount of Vitamin B-12 required As said earlier too people above 14 years of age should consume 2.4 mcg of it daily. Pregnant Women should consume 2.6 mcg of it. Lactating women should have 2.8 mcg of it. Excessive intake of it does nothing harmful. But taking supplements is something which we don’t recommend. Why We Indians are deficient of Vitamin B-12? Most of the Indians are vegetarians or chicken eaters. We prefer to eat meat less. So because of exclusion of animal –sourced food products from our diet, we suffer from this deficiency more. Birth rate here is more. It means we have more pregnant ladies and if Ladies you are pregnant as well as vegetarian, it gets worse. People here suffer from small intestine problems which restrict absorption of Vitamin B-12. More amounts of people have gastritis and inflammatory bowel disease which may lead to this deficiency. Youngsters eat a lot of junk food and yes It will cause deficiency of Vitamin B-12. Healthy bacteria are required to synthesize it so an overgrowth of bad bacteria will increase this deficiency. Junk food promotes bad bacteria a lot so try to avoid eating it. More people here are suffering from diabetes. Medication of diabetes also leads to its deficiency. PCOD medications also cause this deficiency. People who drink alcohol on regular basis are more likely to suffer this deficiency. If any of the above mentioned point is valid for you. Consult us now! Recommendation of Dieticians Our dieticians recommend that people should have more animal rich products. People who are vegetarian can include dairy products in their diet. List of food containing Vitamin B-12 are:- Beef Pork Ham Poultry Lamb Fish Dairy Products such as milk, yogurt and cheese Nutrient rich Yeast Products Eggs Some type of soya milk and Breakfast Cereals For a full customized diet plan Contact us! Stay tuned for more health tips.
