Aaron Has Given You 2-Months of Skillshare Premium
The ketogentic diet is the latest fad diet. In this video men's style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro says that the lifecycle of the fad diet is that it goes away and comes back with a cooler name. None of these diets are new; however, Alpha's going over the ketogenic diet.

How the Keto Diet Works

The body, including your brain, needs glucose to function. The glucose comes from carbs. But wthout glucose, your body will use ketones instead of carbs.  The ketogenic diet takes your body into the state of ketosis where your body burns fats for energy. The object of the diet is to force your body to get into and stay in a glycogen deprived state and maintain a mild state of ketosis. You find out if you're in ketosis by urinating on a keto-stick.

The Up and Down Sides

The keto diet has no starches. The upside is that fat falls off, and you can eat as much fat as you want. It's all about fat. Some claim that they think clearer and that cancer can't thrive and grow in the absence of glucose. The downside is the keto-flu when starting the diet. Another downside is low energy levels - your body needs carbohydrates. Without carbs, you have a zero chance of gaining muscle because you need glucose and glycogen.

Educate Yourself

It's crazy how little people know about what they're consuming and why their body needs certain things. People need to educate themselves about what is important for your body. Alpha took nutrition in college, and it changed his world. He attributes his health to understanding food. 90% of what your body looks like is what you eat! You can learn from Skillshare without having to go to college. It's an online learning community, featuring 150+ classes on nutrition. It's incredible!
