or many years, the practice of inducing ketosis through changes in dietary practices in order to lose weight, was taboo. Alarm was initially created in connection with the Cambridge Diet, a liquid protein product that followed the successful publication of The Last Chance Diet (1976). When about 50 people reportedly died using this very low calorie, low fat diet, the U.S. FDA began circulating the word that high protein, low carb, low fat diets were to be discouraged. But the problem was the product -- not the concept. Ketosis continues to be greatly misunderstood to this day, but one thing is certain -- the science behind it has been validated and is here to stay.
The principles behind ketosis-induced weight loss is hornbook biochemistry -- in the absence of carbohydrates, the body will pull from its fat reserves to help metabolize proteins and fats.
Out of this simple observation came The Atkins Diet, published by the late Dr. Robert Atkins. Although the sensation created by the book began slowly at first, it has now become a tidal wave movement within the weight loss community. In addition to spawning another dozen or so books, the "Atkins organization" now has its own product (expensive, but generally well reviewed), and web site.
It is our opinion that a program that uses ketosis for rapid weight loss should be relatively short-lived and quite focussed in its goals. Some of the most important phytonutrients for sustaining good health come from fruits and vegetables which are anything but free of carbohydrates. Although one serving (30 g.) of Ketozyne contains 45 mg. of isoflavones, including genistein and daidzein -- important cancer-inhibiting compounds, these are still only one family of chemopreventives -- there are many others.
Be specific in your program, and keep things simple and straight-forward. A thermogenic product, such as Anorex will help you to speed up your goals. If you want to quantify your results in terms of body fat, consider the Vitalio Body Fat Analyzer.
