High fat diet displays health benefits in mice


The Bacon Diet. Believe it or not, there is an actual diet colloquially known as the Bacon Diet, and it may just stave off illness, help you lose weight, help you become stronger, give you more energy and help you live longer.This eating plan does not consist of only bacon but rather many different high-fat foods with very limited carbs. This drives your body into what is known as ketosis, where the body shifts from using glucose as its main fuel source to burning fat to generate ketones for energy.Ketogenic diets have been used for almost a hundred years â clinically, for the most part, since the 1920s to treat epilepsy, especially in kids.
