Diet that focused on the consumption of high quality fats this diet called nyx keto diet or nkd provided 75 percent of calories from fat and only 5 percent from carbohydrates the researchers tested the effect of nkd on indicators of cardiovascular health in 14 normal and overweight individuals with elevated ldl cholesterol levels

Participants were instructed to follow this diet for 140 days they were asked to consume foods with high quality fats and to avoid carbohydrate-rich and low-fat foods the patients were monitored across the 140-day period to ensure dietary compliance and assess the effects of nkd after 140 days of following nkd participants showed a significant

Reduction in weight and body fat percentage along with an increase in muscle mass indicating that the diet substantially improved their body composition although the levels of ldl cholesterol remained elevated participants showed increased levels of hdl the good type of cholesterol and decreased blood pressure and glucose levels

All of which reduce risk of heart disease overall the findings suggested that nkd is safe well tolerated and effective in improving body composition and cardiovascular health in individuals with elevated blood lipid levels therefore in the future this diet could be useful for improving cardiovascular health in high-risk populations You
