To produce the energy it needs, the body needs to eat. The 3 macronutrients (ie those from which the body draws) are Fats, Sugars and Proteins.
Generally (say 2500 years), man has started to take in sugars through the ingestion of carbohydrates and lately (the last 100 years) he has also started to take in huge quantities of refined and unrefined sugars.
The organism burns the sugars, in a violent and immediate way, giving a type of energy which however runs out immediately. As soon as the sugars are burned, the body requires more and we enter a dangerous cycle of addiction that sometimes leads to obesity.
Once the sugars (in any form) have run out, the body switches to "plan B" to function and begins to consume the body's fat.
In this case, the body consumes fat to produce energy needs and this process is called ketosis.
When an organism is in ketosis we have the following advantages:
- Improvement of cognitive function
- Decreased appetite
- Lasting Energy
- Improvement of cardiovascular function
- Anti-Age and Longevity
- Better sleep quality
- Consumption and consequently decrease in fat mass
This is because the energy is of higher quality. It is a bit like feeding a fire with dry twigs that are consumed immediately or with coals that develop a lasting fire over time.
To reach the state of ketosis, it is necessary to follow ketogenic diets (low carb) and / or prolonged fasting in order to eliminate all carbohydrates and sugars present in the body so that you can then start consuming fats.
Especially in the rich and fat Western world, this is almost impossible. The population is subjected to advertisements for low-cost sugary products every day. The organism depends on it and we cannot do without it.
How to do, then, to be able to solve the problem?
