Specialist Dietician Eda Balcı stated that the ketogenic diet, which has become increasingly common recently, is described as the body’s fat burning, and that the diet can cause serious health problems if the diet is applied for a long time.
Balcı emphasized that the carbohydrate intake is severely limited in the ketogenic diet, and said, “It is ensured that the person gets fat instead of carbohydrate. With a significant reduction in carbohydrates, the body enters a state called ‘ketosis’. In other words, the body starts to burn fat as an energy source and this way weight loss can be seen. ”
” LONG TIME APPLICATION IS VERY DANGEROUS ”
” LIVER PATIENTS SHOULD STAY AWAY ”
Balcı emphasized that “as the rate of fat in the diet increases, its applicability and sustainability decrease” and emphasized that the fat ratio of the diet should be adjusted according to the person’s health status, blood values and diseases. Balcı also emphasized that the application of some people, especially those with liver disease, is inconvenient due to the health problems that the diet may cause.
“KETOGENIC DIET TYPES”
Expert Dietician Eda Balcı summarized the ketogenic diet types as follows: “Standard ketogenic diet; It is very low carbohydrate, moderately protein and high in fat. High protein ketogenic diet; It contains more protein than the standard ketogenic diet. Cyclical ketogenic diet; In this type of diet, days of high carbohydrate intake are inserted between the days of ketogenic diet. Targeted ketogenic diet; This type of diet allows you to add carbohydrates to the diet in line with training. Carbohydrates can be added before or after exercise. “
