We tend to spend long hours at our workplace. When we start our carrier we need to prove ourselves. 

It is very common for people who go into their professional life to decrease their level of physical activity. More time is required to commute to your job.

As we age we naturally lose muscle

A lot of people experience a decrease in activity as their life goes more busy. During our school years and college years we practice a lot of physical activity on a regular basis: football, soccer, hockey, swimming, running, etc. you name it. We all love this period of our life with intense physical activity.

Ketogenesis burn cells in your body

Any type of calorie restriction diet is going to result in loosing cells in your body, mainly fat cells but also a small amount of muscle cells. That’s inevitable. 

But a keto diet consists of 70 to 80 percent of fat. This results in plenty of fat cells for your body to burn to source energy. The rest of your keto diet should consist of 15 to 20 percent of protein, and 5 to 10 percent of carbs. As long as you follow these indications your body keeps having plenty of fat to burn.

While you’re following a keto diet some muscle loss will naturally occur but if you follow the guidelines of this type of diet, i.e. eating at least 70% of fats throughout your day, your body will have plenty of fat cells to burn instead of muscle cells.
