Weight loss methods matter in the fight for better health. Using fad or unsustainable diets can damage your metabolism and ultimately set you back . Dr. Brett E. Blaser , family practitioner and medical weight loss specialist at MountainStar Healthcare, recommends the three-phase ketogenic diet to keep patients' metabolic rates high and to harness the body's natural fat-burning power to help his patients get positive and long-lasting results. At the beginning of a ketogenic diet, your main goal is to get your body into the metabolic state called ketosis. Your body enters ketosis when you eat mainly proteins and fats, strictly limiting your carbohydrates and sugar intake for approximately three days. Ketosis is when your body has run out of sugars (glucose) and carbohydrates to use as fuel and begins burning your fat stores. Your fat stores are broken down with enzymes produced by the liver called ketones.
