Keto 101: Burn Fat, Not Sugar

To stop carbs from killing you, you can become a fat burner instead of a sugar burner. You may be thinking, “I thought you needed sugar for energy?” That’s not entirely true.

First, the body can synthesize its own glucose (a form of sugar) when needed. Second, by becoming a fat burner, you cause your body and brain to  rely on ketones called B-hydroxybutyrate instead of sugar for fuel. In fact, you can also turn protein into sugar through a process called gluconeogenesis.

When blood sugar is kept down, you begin burning fats and making ketones, avoiding the many metabolic dangers of sugar.  Of those fats, great fats are Omega-3 and MCTs from coconut oil (See Vitalleo’s E3 for more information).
