Ketosis is a natural state of the metabolic process. During ketosis, your body burns stored fat instead of glucose. Here is how you can kickstart the process.
The ‘keto’ diet continues to be all the buzz in the health world. But what exactly is it? A keto diet is a low-carb diet that will kickstart ketosis, a natural metabolic state. During ketosis, your body burns stored fat instead of carbs for energy which makes it efficient at helping individuals lose unwanted fat. To learn more, we encourage you to read a previous article we shared on ketosis and how Profile helps members safely achieve ketosis.
Now, after months of research and development, our team of registered dietitians is launching a SEVEN by Profile kit: a one-week, all-inclusive trial of Profile’s keto plan. The SEVEN kit contains all of the tools you need to see success right away and give you the momentum to keep going. And, yes, it helps kickstart ketosis.
While ketosis is safe for most people, it’s not for everyone. That is why when a Certified Profile Coach takes new members through a health and lifestyle questionnaire to decide if keto is right for them. We encourage you to reach out to Profile if you have questions. If keto is not right for you, that’s ok! Our program is adaptable and can assist you in your unique weight loss goals.
How SEVEN helps kickstart ketosis
1. It has just the right amount of protein.
The SEVEN kit includes a week of Profile’s tasty protein shakes, bars, and entrees. An important part of ketosis is getting the right amount of protein, and this 7-day meal plan will help you do that. SEVEN also includes education on cooking meals with the right amount of protein for you.
2. Has you eating more veggies vs carbs
SEVEN is a nutritionally complete, low-carb meal plan that provides your body the nutrients needed to support a healthy, effective form of ketosis. As you follow SEVEN, you are encouraged to eat 4+ cups of veggies daily. The kit helps you do so with a shopping list, 14 recipes, and step-by-step prep instructions. You’ll learn how to eat a variety of veggies and prepare them in tasty, flavorful ways.
3. Inspires you to up your physical activity.
During your 7-days following SEVEN, you are encouraged to get up and move! If you’re new to working out, that’s ok. SEVEN includes a day of education on how you can start getting physically active. Exercise will help your body deplete its glycogen store. As you follow the low-carb SEVEN plan, those stores will not be replenished. That means your body can effectively be in ketosis.
4. Encourages you to drink more water.
As you eat fewer carbs, your body will lose water weight. We encourage you to drink at least 64 ounces daily. The SEVEN kit includes a day of education on the importance of hydration. It also includes tips on how you can easily drink up enough fluids daily.
5. Provides much-needed electrolytes.
As your body goes into ketosis, it is normal to feel a lack of energy and a slight headache. As you lose water weight, your body also loses electrolytes, which are minerals capable of carrying an electric charge that your cells and organs need to function correctly. The SEVEN kit will help you replenish your electrolytes. Your SEVEN meal plan will include a daily H2Energy. This drink provides your body with electrolytes, vitamins, minerals, and caffeine to boost hydration and energy levels as you enter ketosis.
