My lifestyle and work never allowed me to stick to any diet. Keto has fit in like magic in it and worked wonders for me!
Rahul Talreja is a 26-years-old IT Professional from Kolkata, India. He reached out to us for a Personalized Keto Diet about 3 Months ago. IT is an integral part of all organizations and we understand firsthand that people who work in IT are a unique, diverse community of individuals who do great work on the job and usually lead a hectic routine.
Technology problems have profound consequences, and those who work in information technology feel that pressure. Pressure leads to stress, and that stress builds over time. It becomes a nearly constant strain on our lives. And, those of us who work in tech support or have program management jobs feel it the most.
But this tough job comes with its own problems. Rahul’s job requires him to stay right in front of his laptop screen which has made his lifestyle a sedentary one. Less well appreciated is that being sedentary also comes with increased odds of stress, depression, and diminished well-being.
Among adolescents, increased screen time is associated with poorer mental health. Sedentary lifestyles associates themselves with elevated levels of anxiety. Physical activity has benefits for physical health and has also been shown to have benefits for the treatment of depression, but leading such a lifestyle goes in the totally opposite direction.
Work From Home And Lockdown
As we begin preparing to take advantage of the relaxation in lockdown to resume work, revive our businesses, or resurrect our social lives, companies and employees are trying to visualize the future of the workplace.
The ongoing lockdowns to flatten the COVID-19 curve, changed the way people work, especially those in the organized sector. A majority of employees in the organized sector continued to work during the lockdown, but from home (WFH). While the IT sector is familiar with the concept, this is a first for employees in other sectors.
And while there is no published evidence that exercise habits have dropped off with the self-isolation and quarantine protocols now in place, some preliminary data suggests people might be moving less in these worrisome times. For people who were mildly active at baseline, becoming completely sedentary because of lockdown can have a detrimental effect.
When an individual is immobile for 3 to 6 hours, it impacts the Vascular function to another level. Atrophy of the cardiac muscle can occur after 2 weeks. Now we’re talking about 6 months-long lockdown in India and some of the other countries.
While we’re still in the early months of the pandemic, there will be a need to study its long-term impact on lifestyle disruptions and chronic disease. And, this is both a medical and financial crisis.
The Increasing Implications On People’s Health
Physical inactivity can have serious implications on people’s health, says WHO(World Health Organization). Approximately 2 million deaths per year are attributed to physical inactivity, a sedentary lifestyle could very well be the reason behind the same.
Having a sedentary lifestyle can also result in weight gain and further can cause obesity. And the more sedentary you are, the higher your health risks areas there is abundant evidence that obesity increases the risk of elevated blood sugar and insulin resistance.
It goes without saying that, the habit of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a nutritious diet can go a long way. The good part is, you can overcome this with a healthy diet.
The Keto Diet
A ketogenic diet can trigger major reductions in blood sugar and insulin levels, which has additional health benefits. It shifts the body’s metabolism away from carbs and towards fat and ketones.
The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, moderate-protein, and a low-carbohydrate diet that involves reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat.
This reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis. When this happens, your body becomes incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy.
It also turns fat into ketones in the liver, which can supply energy for the brain. While your body is in ketosis, it becomes extremely efficient at burning fat.
How Keto India Helped
