Ketogenic & Thermo-Ketogenic Diets
  • Low-calorie: 500-900 kcal/day
  • Short: 5-12 days
  • Effective: 5-10 kg weight loss
  • Different versions:
    standard, vegan, organic

All Islaverde Diets belong to a wide group of NK diets (nutritional ketosis diets), in which a metabolic state of ketosis is induced. Islaverde (“green island” in Spanish) Diets are made exclusively of natural ingredients, such as:

  • hemp oil
  • cryogenically ground coconut flesh,
  • cocoa beans,
  • freeze-dried fruits,
  • hemp cake,
  • whey protein WPC 80 – in standard version,
  • green pea – in vegan and organic versions.
  • Blends of these ingredients have the form of tasty meal-replacement drinks and desserts. For more information, click on the diets or check our website and online store:

Since the invention of agriculture, which took place about 10,000 years ago, we’ve been consuming increasingly bigger amounts of carbohydrates. In the sixties, the amount of carbs in our daily menu exceeded 60%, immediately becoming the main cause of lifestyle diseases.

Insulin and leptin – the cause of lifestyle diseases

The population of Europe and North America is 1.3 billion. Unbelievably, 800 million of them struggle with obesity, overweight, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s and premature ageing. These conditions are a result of disorders of two hormones: insulin, responsible for transporting glucose to the cells, and leptin, satiety hormone. Both metabolic dysfunctions are developed as a result of excessive consumption of carbohydrates. Fortunately they can be treated without medication by changing eating habits and starting NK diet, in which the carbohydrate intake is drastically reduced. Consequently, insulin and leptin can be correctly regulated and can properly control the functioning of the body:

  • When the insulin level drops to almost zero, hunger disappears.
  • After the consumption of fats leptin levels rise, informing the brain of satiety.

As a consequence, we eat less but we don’t feel hunger, even on a low-calorie ketogenic diet.
If we use short, cyclic, low-calorie ketogenic diets, we can help 500 million Europeans and Americans.

Why ketone metabolism is better than glucose
Glucose metabolism Ketone metabolism
Duration in human history 10,000 years – since the invention of agriculture. It is secondary, developed quite recently. 2 million years – since the appearance of Homo sapiens. It’s humans’ initial metabolism.
Description Carbohydrates are quickly converted into glucose, which is then transported to the cells by insulin. The body converts fat into ketones and uses them as a more efficient fuel when the glucose level gets very low. The process is known as ketosis.
Difference in performance Excessive glucose is always stored in the body as glycogen or fat. Ketones cannot be stored in the body and their excess must be burnt.
Energy origin The entire energy deficit is covered with glycogen (another form of glucose), stored in the liver and muscles. The entire energy deficit is covered by the combustion of the fatty tissue.
Comparison to a hybrid/ gasoline car Thanks to the reserves of electric energy hybrid cars burn less gas, just like less fat is burnt in glucose metabolism, as long as there is a reserve of glycogen. Gasoline cars burn more gas, especially when they have to work with more power. In ketone metabolism the body burns more fat when the effort is increased (e.g. when we exercise).
Overeating Carbohydrates are digested quickly, so shortly after a meal the feeling of hunger comes back. Fat and protein are digested slowly, increasing the feeling of satiety. As a result, the size of meals can be reduced.
Effect of a low-calorie diet on metabolism TMetabolism slows down, because the body is trying to save fat stores. Metabolism accelerates, because in the state of ketosis the fatty tissue is efficiently burnt.
Conclusion Glucose metabolism promotes the restoration of fatty tissue. As a result, if we consume more than can be burn, we gain weight. In ketone metabolism the body always receives as much energy from food as it expends because it can’t create a reserve. In order to process the excessive energy metabolism accelerates.

How to change your lifestyle
  1. Try out a vegan-organic low-calorie thermos-ketogenic diet. You can lose up to 8 kg in 9 days.
  2. Support the diet with 20-30 min moderate workout.
  3. Observe how you feel in ketosis, when you stop feeling hunger and how fast you feel full (you will get good results even with 900 kcal daily).
  4. Read “A Very Brief Nutrition Course” on http://ketogenicdiet.eu/.
  5. When you complete the diet, take the next step: reduce high-glycemic carbs in your diet.
  6. Try out a vegan-organic low-calorie thermos-ketogenic diet. You can lose up to 8 kg in 9 days.
