Keto diet burns ten times more fat than normal diet
The Keto diet burns ten times more fat than a standard diet – even without exercise, research suggests.
Researchers studied people who have type 2 diabetes or were at risk of developing it.
They found that that those following the low-carb plan advocated by the diet saw the most health benefits compared to those on a typical diet, whether the latter carried out physical activity or not.
The findings were published in the journal Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome.
Researchers from Bethel University in Minnesota, United States (U.S.), studied 30 women and men between the ages of 18 and 65. All had previously been diagnosed with metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes, or type 2 diabetes.
Metabolic syndrome is the medical term for a cluster of conditions – increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol levels – that occur together, increasing your risk the heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
Their BMI was greater than or equal to 25 (or waist circumference above 37 for men and 31.5 for women) and body fat percentage above 30 percent.
