This Post Was All About Why Keto Gives You More Energy.
Here’s The Video Description From YouTube
It’s possible that keto gives you more energy than other diets, especially high-carb diets. Here’s why.
0:18 The Krebs cycle
1:43 The body’s fuel
1:51 Glucose versus ketones as fuel
2:16 Keto and energy
3:10 Keto fatigue and keto flu
In this video, we’re going to talk about keto and energy. I want to explain why you’re going to experience more energy on the keto diet versus another diet.
There is something called the Krebs cycle. The Krebs cycle is an entire pathway from start to finish of how food fuel gets turned into and converted into the energy that the body uses called ATP. ATP is the energy currency that the body needs to get the job done. I’m talking about the millions of biochemical reactions that occur in the body.
The body’s fuel can’t use fats or glucose directly. It has two be converted through the Krebs cycle.
This all happens inside the matrix, which is inside of the mitochondria. ATP provides the energy to drive the biochemical reactions in the entire body.
You can use glucose as fuel, ketones as fuel, or even amino acids as fuel.
• 100g of glucose will give 8.7kg of ATP
• 100g of ketones will give 10.5kg of ATP
As you can see, beta-hydroxybutyrate gives more ATP with the same amount of material. This is why when you go on a ketogenic diet, your energy goes up. If you don’t experience more energy on keto, then we need to look deeper into the chemistry that’s going on with the Krebs cycle.
You need certain vitamins and minerals to activate this chemistry. Without sufficient amounts of nutrients, you can’t generate energy. Not having these nutrients could also be why some people experience things like keto fatigue or the keto flu when starting the keto diet.
