What is ketosis?
With the ketogenic diet growing in popularity, we’re often asked if Sqwincher Zero Qwik Stiks are keto friendly. The short answer is yes. Since all Sqwincher Zero products contain zero sugars and minimal calories, they’re a good source of electrolytes for those on a keto diet.
If you’re unfamiliar with the keto craze, here’s a quick rundown. Ketosis is a metabolic process where fat is broken down to provide glucose for energy. Acids called ketones are a by-product of this process and the basis for its name.
Typically, the cells in your body use glucose for fuel. This glucose is usually derived from the carbohydrates that you eat and is stored in the liver and muscles as glycogen. However, when glycogen gets depleted, the body will turn to its fat stores as a secondary source of energy. In an attempt to stimulate this fat burning process, many people are adopting a ketogenic or low carb diet.
By restricting carb intake to as little as 5% of daily calories, the body is forced into burning fat for energy. Although the diet has its controversy, many have found it to be an effective weight loss strategy. As with any change in diet, however, those considering keto should first discuss both the benefits and potential side effects with their physician.
