Certain diets can be tiring, expensive, and not sustainable. Most people think that a lifestyle change to lose weight is a “diet” which makes it emotional and negative. You may lose weight but what happens when the program ends? That’s right – you go right back to your old ways, your previous weight and more, and you are on the Yo-Yo lifestyle that is not the healthiest route to take.
With New Vitality Centers weight loss plan, you can lose weight and keep it off. The plan allows you to lose fat without the “starvation” feeling and your body gets nutrition through real food sources. The plan has been proven safe for everyone; multiple studies have shown it to be safe for many different populations, including children, the elderly, diabetics, and those with heart disease.
With the ketogenic diet, you can enjoy tasty meals and lose weight quickly. Many people believe that the keto diet consists of not eating any carbs. That is false! You do eat carbs, but the carbs you eat will be healthy and your portion sizes will be smaller. Your carbs will come from vegetables and select fruits mostly. The keto diet is a low-carb diet that allows your body to enter ketosis, which is a metabolic state that converts fat into ketones or ketone acids. These ketones are used by your muscles, brain, another other tissues for energy. Instead of using glucose for energy, your body will use fat and ketones.
When you eat carbohydrates, the starch and sugar is broken down into glucose, which is energy. Only so much glycogen can be stored for short-term use and the rest gets converted into fat for long-term storage. Fat is, after all – stored energy. You cannot burn from your fat stores if you have glucose coming in from carbs. If you restrict carbs, you will use up the glycogen and begin running on your stored fat. Let’s get rid of the fat!
Most importantly, this is a lifestyle that is healthy and sustainable. You can go out to dinner and enjoy a meal with friends and family – just pick the right foods. No more hibernating when you’re on a diet trying to avoid all your social activities.
The reason that keto can be so effective for many people is getting your system into ketosis. Ketosis is an intense, fat-burning state. Instead of using carbohydrates for energy, your body will start using fat as fuel when you are in ketosis. Your body will produce ketones which will keep you satiated.
Benefits of Ketogenic Diet:
It is important to start the ketogenic diet with help. New Vitality Centers can help you start and maintain your new lifestyle that will keep you at your optimum weight. New Vitality Centers will help you answer questions like:
It is important to understand your “why.” Why is not a “one size fits all”? It is important to understand what keeps you motivated. Even the most motivated people need support during their weight loss journey. Having family members or friends who support you can be equally important and will help you stick to a plan; especially in the first phase. If your why is strong enough, and deep enough, nothing will stop you from reaching your goals. Not even a fresh loaf of bread! A strong enough why will give you the power to make you turn down that cookie.
What is your why?
Life sometimes interferes with our intentions which will interfere with our why. On those days, just reflect and renew your why, which is your core motivation to get back on track. We hear lots of “why’s” at New Vitality Centers. Over the years, so many people desperately want to lose weight and need to lose weight, but for whatever reason they cannot make the lifestyle change. It is impossible to stay committed to your goals unless you know your why. Your why is the driving force that will make you want to change and get healthy. Once you start to lose weight, your why may change a little and your goals may start to change because you begin to feel better.
Weight loss and other challenging life goals will never be a straight-line target. There may be dips along the way and you may get discouraged. That is part of it. That is part of life. But the stronger your why, the stronger your reason for staying healthy and you will meet your goals!
