One thing that fuels inflammation in our bodies is having high body fat. This higher level of inflammation is especially problematic for people with chronic lung conditions, such as COPD. By becoming fat-adapted with an Anti-Inflammatory Initiative™, or AI2™, plan, you can train your body to naturally reduce inflammation.
What does it take to become fat-adapted?
The average American eats a diet that’s very high in carbohydrates. The official Standard American Diet (SAD) has sugar as its largest area of consumption. However, allowing your body to run primarily on sugar has its problems, and one of them is increased body fat.
Your body’s fat levels increase as extra sugar you eat is stored as fat by your body. If you think about love handles and beer bellies, then you’ll know what that means. Unfortunately, this high level of body fat leads to increased levels of inflammation in the body, and for lung patients, this higher inflammation level means it may be even harder for you to breathe.
With the fat-adapted AI2™ diet, the Lung Health Institute wants to help you reduce this source of inflammation. The key to reducing inflammation caused by high body fat content is ketones. When your body is running off fats instead of sugar, it produces more ketones. Ketones are anti-inflammatory because they get rid of toxins in your body that can cause inflammation. They’re also a more stable source of energy that don’t produce energy highs and lows the way sugars do. Using the AI2™ plans from the Lung Health Institute, you can replace your high-carbohydrate, high-inflammation diet with a high-fat, nutrient-dense and low-inflammation one, which may help you Breathe Easier™ with your chronic lung condition.
