Reading Time: 2 Minutes – What Makes the Keto Diet Work?
The removal of processed foods, and that’s it. There is nothing magic about eating animal products that make a ketogenic diet work.
Even if someone were to simply remove ALL processed foods except animal products, they would still have the same benefits.
The problem with animal products is that they are highly concentrated processed foods. Highly processed by the animals that originally consumed a RAW whole-food/plant-based diet.
Of course some will ask, “Where do you get your protein?”
Wrong question. It should be, “Where do you get your AMINO ACIDS?” Because that is what our body needs in that our body makes ALL of its own proteins from amino acids. And if you are deriving them from animal products you are doing it the hard way.
Our body wants all of its nutrient sources to be present at the lowest overall metabolic cost and having to break down animal products is the least efficient way to go about it at great cost to your overall vitality.
This is just how human physiology works. It’s not even up for debate.
If your diet and metabolism aren’t easy it will eventually become diseasy.
