Does the Ketogenic Diet Work for Type 2 Diabetes?
How Does the Keto Diet Work Exactly?
The keto diet is a low-carb, high-fat dietary regimen which has been linked to improvements in insulin sensitivity and higher rates of weight loss — both positive factors in managing type 2 diabetes.
Lowering carb intake induces a metabolic state known as ketosis, through which the body produces ketones which burn fat — rather than carbohydrates — for energy.
The Keto Diet includes a much greater variety of foods than a conventional diabetic meal plan.
It’s important to remember that, while keto is a “high fat” diet, the goal is to use your body fat as an energy source, not the fat that’s on your plate.
