But ketosis is good for a lot more than simply looks or sports performance. The same reason it leans you out (lower blood sugar) also makes it preventative of major diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and many cancers. “Many chronic disease states can be improved or prevented by a well-formulated ketogenic diet," says Dominic D’Agostino, Ph.D., an associate professor at the University of South Florida.
There are several approaches, and the most obvious, fasting, is said to be the most difficult. The principle is simple: When you stop eating, you’ll eventually start burning fat for energy. But for many people, even the thought of going without food is too much to bear.
