What is a Keto Diet?
The ketogenic (keto) diet is a low carbohydrate diet that induces ketosis. The body utilizes carbohydrates, fats and protein for energy. With low intake of carbohydrates, the body has to use other sources for energy. The body turns to breaking down fat which releases ketones. When the ketogenic diet is done correctly, it should induce some level of ketosis. The achievement of ketosis can be monitored by use of keto urine sticks.
The protein sparing modified fast (PSMF) is also a low carbohydrate diet that induces ketosis. However, one of the challenges with purely low carbohydrate diets is the potential for muscle loss. With the protein sparing modified fast diet, the high fat of the keto diet is replaced with high protein. This extra protein helps to spare the loss of protein that can occur with a keto diet. Nutrition is obtained from lean meat, poultry and seafood. The PSMF diet is low calorie, low carbohydrate, low fat and high protein. Due to the rapid weight loss that can be achieved by this diet, medical supervision is usually recommended. At, Art of Balance, we offer a medically supervised protein sparing modified fast meal replacement as well as education and diet plans for other diets such as the keto diet and intermittent fasting diet.
