Just like our body has organs; heart, lungs, liver, spleen, stomach and so on, each one of our cells has little tiny organs called organelles. The organelles have very specific functions just like our organs do. The organelle that supplies all the energy demands for the body is called the Mitochondria, or as I like to call it, the MIGHTYchondria! This little tiny structure inside all our cells takes the food we eat and the air we breathe and converts it into energy (in the form of a molecule called ATP). This molecule is then dispersed throughout the body to provide all the energy we need to keep us alive and functioning.
Obviously this happens without our having to think or do anything. But thankfully someone did think about it and research has shown us that the way our MightyChondria breakdown food is not equal. Specifically when we are talking about fats vs. carbs.
When our cells break down food, in addition to creating the energy molecule ATP, it also generates free radicals as a by-product. You may have heard of free radicals for the damage they create in our cells and the recent upsurge of antioxidant supplement to help neutralize the free radical damage.
Free radicals are a natural by-product of metabolism and they serve a purpose. However, too many of them can wreak havoc on your health. The important thing to know about food and energy metabolism is that carbs create 2x's MORE free radicals and 1/2 the amount of energy than when you are metabolizing fats. THIS IS A BIG DEAL FOLKS!!
Nutritional Ketosis is an incredibly effective method for fat loss. When you reduce the amount of carbs in your diet, your body will go to the next most available source of fuel, your stored body fat. YaHoo! But understand this > Nutritional Ketosis is so much more than just a weight loss diet. It will literally change the health of your cells, reduce inflammation and pain, reduce free radical damage, create more energy, reduce cravings, improve brain function, and so much more.
