By kicking off the process of ketosis,your body enters a metabolic state in which some of the body’s energy is come from ketone bodies in the blood, in contrast to state of glycolysis in which blood glucose provides most of the energy.
While most cells can use both glucose and ketone bodies for fuel,there’s a major difference between the two when it comes to burning fats. In glycolysis, higher levels of insulin promote the body’s storage of fats and block the release of fat from the adipose tissues. However, in ketosis,fat reserves are readily available for release and consumption.
This is why ketosis is sometimes referred to as the body’s “fat-burning”mode. Ketosis was the key factor in the Atkins diet which gained popularity in early 2000’s and fueled the public’s switch from counting calories to counting carbs.
