Relieve lipedema through a ketogenic diet

What is a ketogenic diet?

At first glance: low carb, high fat. Of course, there is a little more to it than that: the ketogenic diet is characterized by the fact that the amount and selection of ingredients creates ketone bodies. It is “ketogenic” - “generating ketone bodies”.

What are these ketone bodies? Special molecules that are made from fatty acids in the liver. As an energy carrier, they provide the brain, muscles and other body tissue with the energy they need to function. When there is an increased number of ketone bodies in the blood, this condition is known as ketosis: an increased state of fat burning which, we recall, breaks down glycogen and decreases water retention at the same time.

In order to achieve the state of ketosis, you should put your diet together in the following order:

  • Very low in carbohydrates
  • Moderate protein consumption
  • Main energy supplier: fat

With a healthy ketogenic diet, vegetables are your best friend. Green vegetables, in particular, are so low in carbohydrates that you can eat large amounts without affecting your ketosis. But be careful: root vegetables have a high carbohydrate content and should be avoided in the ketogenic diet. Red and yellow vegetables like peppers and carrots can be eaten in moderation. In addition to vegetables, proteins are important for your body. They fill you up and maintain your muscles. High-quality protein from animal sources is ideal - eggs, fish, meat. Since fat is your main source of energy, you are welcome to use the fat variant such as salmon. High-quality fatty acids from coconut oil, avocado, olive oil or nuts (especially macadamias) are also good.
