KEN™ is a revolutionary weight reduction technique developed by Prof Gianfranco Capello who set up first clinic in Rome. KEN stands for Ketogenic Enteral Nutrition which sends the body into a controlled “starvation mode”, forcing it to use its own fat for energy. The programme consists of infusion of a simple solution of proteins in a cycle of 10 days and can be repeated after the resting period of 10 days till the target weight is achieved.
Safe & effective
KEN™ allows the body to switch into KETOGENIC mode, whereby it breaks down its own fat stored for use as energy. The special feature in this system is that participants do not feel hungry throughout the entire duration of the 10 day session, and can perform normal daily activities without impairment and without the need for any additional food.
Typical weight loss over the duration of the 10 day session is 6 – 9% of the initial body weight. KEN™ allows the body to shed weight at a fast pace, which is safe, healthy and sustainable. To date, this technique has been used on over 33,000 patients in over 75,000 cycles & has been shown to be effective every time.
During the cycle of 10 days, 24 hour feeding is done to patient. Feeding has a special patented formula which is designed to provide all essential nutrients. There is no need for any extra preparation and the patient can take food or fluids before the introduction of tube. The patient is seated and asked to sip water with a straw. A fine naso-gastric tube is placed into the nose and passed into the stomach of the patient to allow continuous feeding. This procedure takes few seconds and is not painful.
Due to continuous infusion, a state of ketosis is created which takes away all feeling of hunger in a patient during treatment. The body is switched into Ketogenic mode which breaks down its own fat stores.
Patients are able to perform their daily activities without any problem and will go through the whole period without the need of any additional food. During the treatment, patient should not take anything but water, tea, chamomile tea or coffee without sugar or sweeteners, otherwise the Ketones are reduced and the feeling of hunger might appear. This is something which should be carefully avoided. For every cycle, there is a loss of about 6 – 9 % of the total body weight. Also, there are no side effects and the cycle can be repeated as often as necessary till the desired weight is gained.
