WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY
Ketogenic diet: a diet approved by the science
It is well known that our state of health largely depends on food choices. In fact, a proper nutrition represents the first, effective prevention tool to keep the organism in shape. Today, an increasing number of doctors, scientists, experts in nutrition, promotes a ketogenic or lowcarb diet, since it is agreed in attributing to that sugars play a crucial role in the spread of numerous diseases. In fact, scientific evidence shows that an excess of sugar in the body favors and feeds a state of cell inflammation that, over time, can bring several problems.
Science and ketogenic alimentation.
In response to these considerations, in recent times, scientists have returned to study to deepen the diet ketogenic, already “discovered” at the beginning of the last century, as a cure for epilepsy. The ketogenic diet, also in its lowcarb variant, is characterized by a substantial reduction of sugars in favor of fats, with a balanced protein intake.That is, in the ketogenic diet, the body finds its main source of energy in fats and no longer in sugars.
The nutritional ketosis
This switch sets in motion a virtuous circle, so the organism, in the absence of glucose, is forced to find new sources of energy. The body’s response to this deficiency situation is nutritional ketosis; that is, the organism synthesizes, from fat, new molecules from which to draw energy: ketones.
It follows, therefore, that the organism to obtain ketones must first burn fat.
Compared to sugars,ketones are a much more valuable and efficient fuel:
- reduce cell inflammation and oxidative stress, causing disease and aging;
- reduce glucose and insulin levels in the blood;
- are immediately bioavailable for cells;
- are an optimal energy source for brain cells.
Ketones represent a source of energy of the highest quality. In addition to providing fuel to the organism, they improve its performance, both physically and mentally.
Lightflow and ketogenic nutrition
The Carbolightline of Lighflow was designed based on this premise. Carbolight was created to offer people a valid alternative, in terms of nutritional values and taste, to traditional products. Carbolight products, in fact, are perfectly compatible with a ketogenic or lowcarb diet, because they are characterized by a reduced carbohydrate content, compared to a high fibre content and a balanced protein intake.
The experts opinion
Recently, many doctors, scientists and biologists have spoken in favour of the ketogenic or low carb diet. Below we propose a series of titles and suggestions to deepen the topic.
In addition, you can find a short video that, in just 3 minutes, offers a comprehensive overview of this revolutionary diet.
IN JUST 3 MINUTES YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THE BENEFITS OF THE KETOGENIC DIET

Dr. Fife, B. (2018)
«Ketogenic diets not only have proved to be safe, but also more effective in improving general health and reducing the risk of chronic diseases than low-fat diets. Ketogenic diet showed more promising results influencing a great number of healthy markers».
Dr. Cazzavillan, S. (2021)
«With the ketogenic diet you will find yourself more energetic and vital, you will not feel that continuous exhausting languor and, in addition, from the metabolic point of view, you will have all the benefits of fasting because it induces in the body a state of ketosis that mime the positive effects of abstinence from food».
Dr. Berrino, F. (2016)
A high consumption of sugar, especially in liquid form, is the cause of obesity (it is not the only cause, the others are the excess of foods with a high glycemic index, such as potatoes and refined flour).The most harmful component of sugar is fructose, associated with dyslipidemia, hyperuricemia, insulin resistance. Even a few weeks with a diet that contains 10% of calories in the form of sugar causes these changes».
Professor Valter D. Longo (2018)
«This diet does nothing more that pushing the body to burn fat to produce energy, thus allowing you to lose weight even without physical activity, at rest, while working and while sleeping».
Pauline Larson (2020)
«Currently, almost all major paediatric hospitals offer a ketogenic diet as an alternative or supplement to the classic pharmaceutical therapies available».
