What is the Ketogenic Diet

The ketogenic Diet is a low-carb, high-fat, moderate protein diet that shifts your metabolism away from glucose to fat utilisation. When little carbohydrates remain in the body, for example through a low-carb diet or through fasting, the body starts to burn the stored fat to produce energy. When this occurs, the liver converts fat into fatty acid and glycerin. When the fatty acid break down further in the cells, the ketone bodies are produced. The ketone bodies replace glucose as the energy source for organs and tissues. Ketones are preferred by tissues and organs such as brain and heart.

This dietary method was devised nearly 100 years ago in order to treat epilepsy, and it has been used as therapy for Alzheimer’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, headache, neurotrauma, pain, Parkinson’s disease and sleep disorders.

The ketogenic is proven as the best weight loss diet, but also gaining attention for its numerous health benefits. Anti-aging is also one of them. This is because the ketogenic diet increases the number of mitochondria cells, increase the cell ability to convert energy efficiently, and contains many powerful anti oxidants which neutralises and removes free radicals. This will not only slows down the aging of your skin, but that of your entire body and mind.

There are numerous studies showing the benefits of the ketogenic diet, including weight loss, clarity of the mental functions, increased energy, reduction of certain types of cancer, improved heart function, improved PCOS symptoms.

About Me

Hi I’m Hiroko! I’m a professional violinist and a nutritionist, currently living in Germany.  Together with my husband, I’m on a ketogenic diet for almost 2 years and ever since, I feel so energetic, keener in mind, and so young as ever! As I was fascinated by this diet, I started to study nutrition. I wanted to know how the body function, and why this diet gives the body such a big impact. Gradually I started to create recipes, not just because I realised that everyone need the recipe more than the theory to practice it in their daily life, I still wanted to be able to enjoy the meals with our family and friends. In these days, everyone has some food intolerance or allergies, it has become very complicated to share every food together.  I wanted to create recipes that everyone can eat, nourish them, and get them excited. Now it has become my passion to create healthy and delicious keto recipes, which are also gluten-free, and mostly dairy-free. Through this way, I would love to share them with you too, and hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
