Keto Might be Perfect for Your Man

La dieta keto podría ser ideal para el hombre de tu vida

Many people have met their weight-loss goals by following the keto diet. But a new study suggests keto might be even more effective for men.

Keto diet refresh

This eating style is designed to help you reach and stay in ketosis—a state in which your body burns fat for energy instead of carbs. Followers get about 75% of their daily calories from fats, 20% from protein, and 5% from carbohydrates. Without a steady stream of carbs, the body converts fat to energy instead.

Study: Keto for males and females

Researchers from the University of Iowa noted that most animal studies of the keto diet were conducted with only male mice. By studying both male and female mice, they investigated how the keto diet might affect men and women differently.

For 15 weeks, the scientists fed the mice either a control diet with 7% fat or a keto diet with 75% fat. Would males and females respond differently? 

They did. The female mice saw an increase in their lean mass but gained weight, while male mice lost body weight.

Human translation

Obviously, we’re not the same as mice, so what does this mean for us? Is the keto diet ineffective for women? Not at all. Many women choose it to shed the pounds. One major difference is the mouse keto diet included only 8% protein, less than half of the protein in a healthy keto diet for people. 

However, the study does suggest that following a keto diet is a great way for the man in your life to slim down.
