KETO diet and type 2 diabetes
The new KETO product line from Vitalia has an original recipe and an excellent nutritional composition, formulated with a low amount of carbohydrates and sugars, which ideally fits into diabetics nutrition.
Diabetes is one of the major diseases of the 21st century, affecting more than 450 million people worldwide. The current pandemic of Covid-19 has made it even more difficult to fight diabetes, and people with diabetes are more likely to have severe symptoms and complications when infected with the virus. Therefore, now more than ever, this population group must maintain strong immunity and properly regulate diabetes.
Diet is key to maintaining a healthy body weight, which in turn is one of the main factors in reducing the risk and preventing type 2 diabetes (T2D). In recent decades, the low carb diet – KETO, has become a well-known and popular way to lose weight, not only within the scientific community, but also among the general public.
What is the KETO diet?
The ketogenic diet is a low carb diet, which includes the consumption of 75% fat, 15-20% protein, and only 5% carbohydrates. Reduced intake of carbohydrates and sugars puts the body in a state of ketosis, where fat is used as a main source of energy.
KETO diet and Type 2 Diabetes
The diet for people with type 2 diabetes is based on reduced intake of carbohydrates and sugars and adequate intake of protein and healthy fats. People who follow the keto diet have been shown to have reduced insulin secretion, increased HDL – “good cholesterol” and reduced peaks in blood glucose levels. Several scientific studies prove that people with diabetes who followed the keto diet for a period of 6 months effectively lost weight, and some of them stopped using insulin therapy.
From now on, Macedonian consumers will be able to experience the benefits of the keto diet. The most renowned producer of healthy food in the region – Vitalia, is the first to launch a KETO line of products with low amount of carbohydrates and sugars.
Find everything you need for the KETO diet on the shelves in your supermarket. Choose KETO Vitalia muesli, with a high content of healthy fats coming from the high percentage of nuts and seeds. In addition, keto muesli is rich in protein and fiber and has only 3 grams of carbohydrates per serving.
