Being successful and having a lot of money does not necessarily give you a ticket to happiness immediately. The first step to being happy can be physical fitness, which shouldn't be the ultimate goal. To be satisfied in life, you have to overcome your obstacles, both physical and mental, be fit and healthy, and understand that the mind and body are interrelated.
The ketogenic diet – a therapeutic diet that was medically prescribed for a chronic disease – is high in fat, moderate in protein, and low in carbohydrates. It suppresses appetite and promotes insulin sensitivity that helps metabolism and increases the fat-burning function. Follow the steps to have a keto diet: Reduce your daily carb intake to below-30 grams. Eat 4–6 cups of low-carbohydrate vegetables and a serving of protein per day. Include healthy fat at every meal and drink lots of water.
Suppressing your food cravings to lose weight will only be a short-term success. Blood sugar imbalance is one of the strongest driving forces for our sugar cravings. Carbohydrates' intake through the food are metabolized by our body into a form of sugar called glucose, that acts as fuel for our body. The hormone called insulin absorbs the glucose, controlling blood sugar level. Too low blood sugar level creates food craving to normalize it. To beat the food cravings, control blood sugar by reducing overall intake of carbohydrate.
