This approach differs to a strict ketogenic diet, as instead of consuming 80% fats, you are consuming a specific amount of protein, and forcing your body to dip into your own stored body fat, instead of using consumed fat for energy.
A standard protein sparing modified fast consists of eating lean protein in an attempt to force your body to use stored fat cells for energy. While this concept might work for some people, it’s long term results can vary due to the speed at which the weight is lost. (1)
Over the past 8 weeks, I used a protocol which is called a “Ketogenic Protein Sparing Modified Fast”. Many people in the ketogenic community have spoken about this topic before, including Maria Emmerich, so I wanted to give it an N=1 test on myself to see what kind of results I could get over the 8-week time frame.
I used a Dexa Scan to monitor body fat compositional changes accurately (the gold standard of body composition), going from 22% body fat to 17% body fat in 8 weeks.
As you might already know, following a ketogenic diet is a great way to reduce your body’s stored fat, whilst maintaining lean muscle mass due to the high level of ketones present, that is responsible for your metabolism.
What you might not know, is that you can apply some helpful tactics to a standard ketogenic diet in order to instruct your body to burn body fat, instead of ingested fat, to lose overall body fat.
