Surely you’ve heard about Keto… but what is it and what does it do? The ketogenic diet is a low carb, high fat diet that offers many health benefits. Similar to many other things in life, good things take time. Ketosis occurs in your body when you follow a very low-carb ketogenic diet, which is a different timeline for everyone!
While the Keto diet does represent a restriction on many foods, it is also cutting out a lot of food groups and choices that aren’t doing much to benefit your body to begin with. This high-fat, low-carb and moderate-protein diet allows your body to turn to fat for energy instead of carbs. Once you start producing ketone bodies, fat will be your primary energy and fuel source. There are MANY benefits to this lifestyle, but here are the important takeaways of following a Keto lifestyle for 45 days:
1. Fat Loss
Being in ketosis allows your body to burn stored body fat for energy (especially in a fasted state), allowing for expedited fat burning.
2. Appetite Control and Reduced Cravings
Keto-friendly foods are much more efficient than those high in carbs. High fat means you will be full faster and for longer periods of time. Your blood sugar will remain consistent which will lead to less cravings and a steadier appetite without the rollercoaster of sugar spikes and crashes.
3. Lower Blood Sugar
Not only will your blood sugar be more consistent, it can help lower it all together. This is especially beneficial for those with Type 2 Diabetes.
4. Increased Energy
Using ketones and fat for fuel instead of carbs can lead to higher and more consistent energy levels. While your energy can dip at first during your body’s transition to a new fuel source, after maintaining ketosis, many people find they have much more energy than before they started.
5. Improved Cholesterol
Cholesterol occasionally goes up on a ketosis diet, however it’s easily misleading. The increase of good fats can increase HDL, your “good” cholesterol, and lower LDL, your “bad” cholesterol. We are also learning that particle size plays a factor in how those numbers read.
It’s all about the types of foods that we put into our bodies. A keto protocol isn’t a free pass to the Butter Barn. That’s one of the beautiful things about our 45-Day Keto Challenge — we have your fats dialed in so that you don’t have to worry about going overboard. While fluctuation in cholesterol levels can be different for everyone, we know that it’s a common trade off in the interim for the greater good of lower body fat.
While these aren’t the only benefits of a ketogenic lifestyle, they are some of the most impactful to your health and well-being.

“I was tired of getting on the scale and always going up. Health is my number one reason. After my first six week challenge I got off of my Type 2 Diabetes insulin and meds. AWESOME. Lost 40 pounds in the first 6 weeks and I’m down 16 more with two weeks to go.”
“I had a great experience on the Keto challenge. The food was amazing. The program was easy to follow. I lost 45 pounds on the challenge and feel better than I have in years.
