Here is a quick recap on what Ketosis is.

In normal circumstances, the body’s cells use glucose as their primary form of energy. Glucose is typically derived from dietary carbohydrates, including:

  • Sugar – such as fruits and milk or yogurt

  • Starchy foods – such as bread and pasta

The body breaks these down into simple sugars. Glucose can be used to fuel the body or stored in the liver and muscles as glycogen.

If insufficient glucose is available to meet energy demands, the body will adopt an alternative strategy to meet those needs. Specifically, the body begins to break down fat stores to provide glucose from triglycerides.

Ketones are a by-product of this process.

Is SOZA Weightloss a ketogenic diet?

The 60-Day SOZA Weightloss program’s suggested menu is mildly ketogenic. That means that, unlike a straight-up ketogenic diet, our program does not necessarily induce immediate ketosis.

Our program is a low-carb diet, but because it is supplied through healthcare professionals, they can modify it (with supplements) to induce ketosis.

Getting into nutritional ketosis is excellent, but it’s not necessarily easy initially. What our program does, is that it changes the dieter's whole eating plan to eat healthier and clean with lower nutrient-dense calories.

Significant and rapid changes occur here.

As you can see from our testimonials, our program does work. However, that being said, many of our patients reach their goal weight with the assistance of healthcare professionals who may, at specific points in time, tweak their patients’ eating menus. Everyone is different, and some patients may need some tweaks.

Some healthcare professionals, for instance, have patients follow the SOZA Weightloss menu when they (patients) reach their mid-way goal weight and consequently tweak the menu for a more ketogenic state to help them finish off those last stubborn pounds.

What is great about our program is that the supplements allow the patients to breeze through the diet, whether they are mildly ketogenic or ketogenic.
