Weight Loss Using Ketosis Diet
The other terms that are used to call ketosis diets are very low carb diets or ketogenic diets. A ketosis is a biochemical event that occurs when there is an extreme restriction of carbohydrate intake and starvation, and this should not be connected with ketoacidosis which is a phenomenon that happens when a diabetic person’s blood sugar will go out of control.
Ketoacidosis will only happen to people with diabetes and it is quite harmful. Ketosis on the other hand is a safe phenomenon and will provide only good benefits to the body of a person. The two terms are sometimes being confused with one another and that is why there are a few people that would think that ketosis is harmful.

In the early 20th century, this kind of diet was commonly used to serve this kind of purpose. There are a lot of medical issues that this kind of diet plan has gained interest such diabetes, obesity, brain cancer, and many more.

There are a lot of people that would notice a sudden decrease of appetite when they are in a ketosis diet and that is because a lot of documented studies have shown that a low carb or ketogenic diet is good for an obese person.
