Diet is in Vogue
According to https://www.dietdoctor.com,
with the keto diet depriving the body of carbs and calories, the liver starts
breaking down the fats in the body as well as the diet into ketones that act as
the source of fuel for the body, especially the brain that requires a lot of
energy. The rate of fat burn can increase significantly when the level of
insulin in the body becomes very low.
This is the reason why a keto diet is favoured by people, who want to lose weight. However, this also means that those on a keto diet consciously have to avoid certain foods, especially desserts that typically contain a lot of calories. The new range of keto-friendly ice creams from Halo Top promises to deliver wholesome enjoyment without compromising their weight loss objectives.
