Your body can run on glucose or fat, but it PREFERS glucose. So unless you haven’t eaten recently the body won’t naturally want to use up fat stores. Most diets tell you to restrict calories and fat to lose weight, but they normally don’t work for long. Studies have shown that low-fat diets don’t have a significant effect on our long-term weight loss.
Traditional low-fat diets don’t encourage the body to burn fat, in fact they can cause the body to store fat and increase appetite. Losing weight is much easier when you are working in harmony with your body’s hormones and don’t feel hungry! When you are in ketosis, and you are using up more calories than you are taking in, your body will have to burn stored fat, it doesn’t have a choice!
