Low carbohydrates diets (Ketogenic diets), with healthy choices of fat and protein, may have some other beneficial effects on the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, coronary artery disease, and some cancers, particularly if attention is paid to the type as well as the quantities of carbohydrates.
ketogenic diets are associated with a small increase in energy expenditure, mainly at the beginning of the diet, causing rapid weight loss which encourages one to stay on track.
Mild Ketosis generally develops after 12 to 14 hours of a diet restricted in carbohydrates inducing our bodies to enter a state of ketosis. This physiologic response, characterized by the concentration of ketonic bodies in the blood, leads the person to feel less hungry while also feeling an increase in his/her well-being and vitality. The results of the protein-based diet are noticeable in a short-term period – in many cases, we have seen patients losing 20 to 25 pounds in only 6 short weeks.
The ProtiSystem Method is supervised weekly by Coaches, so that each patient may have a diet according to his needs and to the amount of weight that he needs to lose, in a healthy and balanced way.
