Paleo Bread™ Keeps Your Body Burning Fat as Energy
People achieve amazing results on the Paleo Diet. Consisting primarily of meats, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, we are tapping into how our Paleolithic hunter-gatherers ancestors lived on so well many years ago. Consuming primitive foods keep the bulk of preservatives and added sugars out, allowing room only for the healthy, plentiful basics.
Unfortunately, the typical American diet consists of many grains (carbohydrates) and packed with sugar (glucose). The body utilizes all of that sugar for energy, stores the excess as fat, and we see our waistline suffer. Optimally, we want our body to work more efficiently, helping us to keep our BMI on track and accomplish the goals we set.
It is not essential that we only use sugar as our source of energy. When we put our body in a state of ketosis through reduced carbohydrate intake and focus on the protein allowances on the Paleo Diet, it will help to curb your appetite, drop pounds, keep hunger pains away, and turn your body into an effective fat burning machine.
The Paleo Diet is a great way to induce ketosis: the ability to burn fat, rather than glucose (sugar), for energy. Start using your own fat as fuel! In ketosis, the body switches from using carbohydrates to optimizing fat as its main source of energy. Once achieved, it is relatively easy to keep the body in ketosis sticking to the Paleo Diet. By watching your intake of fruits and starches, and focusing more on the other protein-containing allowances, your total carbohydrate intake will be reduced. In a state of ketosis, it is possible to eat the same amount of calories as on a carbohydrate rich diet, and lose more. In order to keep your body in ketosis, one must consume 50 grams of carbs a day or less (50 grams being the maximum amount).
The high protein consumption also provides you with the right amount of fats which help the body feel full and are natural appetite controllers through satiety. It takes fat to lose fat and curbs hunger effectively. Proteins are digested slower than carbohydrates, leading to less need for snacking and less food at meal times. The less hungry we get throughout the day, the easier it is to stick to well balanced meals without the desire to reach for any snack in sight. Ketosis will also give your metabolism a kick; it help burns fat more easily with less effort. You may find yourself losing weight at this point without even trying!
