9:00 am - 10:15 am, Hall 2

Cristian Mărgărit has been one of those who have popularized this diet in Romania since 2004. In 2014 he published, together with ADER, the “Ketogenic Diet – the nutritional solution in epilepsy and other neurological diseases”. The keto diet or ketogenic diet can be followed by both men and women. The daily ketogenic diet menu allows us to eat out and includes delicious food.

This diet called ketogenic is based on the high intake of protein and fat from meat, seafood, olive oil, eggs and small amounts of vegetables, coconut oil and olives. The presentation will address the following topics:

  • concept and history of ketogenic diet
  • aspects of physiology and biochemistry of the diet
  • types of ketogenic diets
  • the benefits of this diet (scientifically confirmed)
  • Diet risks
  • discussing the opportunity of diet in slimming

Ketogenic diet involves the consumption of fat and protein whilst most carbohydrates are eliminated. Few permitted carbohydrates are from low glycemic index fruits, green vegetables, green leaf lettuce, and total carbohydrate intake should be kept below 50 g per day.

How does the slimming regimen work in the ketogenic way? Once the body is deprived of carbohydrates, it enters a state known as ketosis (or ketosis), where both fat in the diet and excess fat on the body are transformed into ketones in the liver and used as fuel for the brain and muscles. This diet forces the body to energize itself with fat, not sugar, and presents a number of benefits for women’s health.
