Dr Oz: Ketogenic Diet To Burn Stored Fat
Can you really hack your body to burn stored fat? The ketogenic diet is a lifestyle designed by science to send your body into ketosis, a metabolic state that forces your body to burn stored fat for fuel. Inducing ketosis actually wasn’t originally intended for weight loss. Back in the 1920’s, it was used to treat seizure disorders in children and diabetes in the years before injectable insulin. The therapeutic potential for ketogenic diets for weight loss was first acknowledged in the 1960’s and took off in the 1970’s when the Atkins diet was introduced.
