Don't you want your friends to ask, "What's the secret to your lean and muscular physique? How did you become slim within a few months? Would you care to share your diet and workout plan so that we can also get in shape?" But how will you achieve such an impressive physique in a few months? Intermittent fasting, a carb-free diet, and hours of exercise may help you achieve your dream figure, but the process is too tiring. You may want to cheat your diet after a few days and enjoy some delicious dark chocolate to boost your mood.

Benefits of the ketogenic diet

While all these sound challenging, you can try a diet that's very popular in Mexico. It involves substituting your carb diet with high-fat food so that your body goes into a metabolic state called ketosis. But every diet comes with pros and cons; the keto diet is no different. It prevents you from eating wheat-based products, pasta, rice, beans or legumes, root vegetables, and sugar-free diet foods. What if you could bypass these rules, yet initiate the same effect that a keto diet produces?

You would immediately jump for that option. And that option includes using a ketogenic supplement. This supplement, consisting of plant extracts and natural herbs, offers the same function that a ketogenic diet stimulates in your body. Once the ingredients mix in your blood, they make you feel full. You may not want to eat for hours.

According to a study, people on a ketogenic diet managed to lose 2.2 times more weight than people who went for a calorie-restricted low-fat diet. Apart from making you feel full, the supplement also improves your HDL cholesterol and triglyceride level. These ingredients are also responsible for improving your body's insulin content and ketones that make you slimmer within a few months.

How to take ketogenic supplements?

Ketogenic supplements usually have a mild flavor, making them suitable for mixing with milkshakes. Here's how to take the supplement:

  • Take a tablespoon of the powder and mix it in a cup of lukewarm water. You can also mix it in your milkshake.
  • Drink it in the morning before eating breakfast.
  • Repeat this every day for at least 30 days to see a radical change in your physique.

What to eat and what to avoid while taking ketogenic supplements?

Consuming a ketogenic supplement doesn't mean you need to sacrifice all your favorite foods. You can continue eating foods like olives, fish that contain omega-3 fatty acids, eggs, meat, low-fat cheese, and dark chocolate. On the other hand, you should avoid foods like lentils, chickpeas, kidney beans, mayonnaise, carrots, parsnips, ice cream, candy, cake, smoothies, and aerated drinks.

The active agents in the supplement will start functioning as soon as they dissolve in your blood. You may not see an overnight transformation in your weight, but make sure you track it at least twice or thrice a month. The efficacy of the ingredients would produce noticeable changes within 30 days.
