What is keto diet?

Low-carb diets are known as "ketogenic" (like the Atkins diet). The goal is to eat more healthy fats and fewer carbs. Carbs that are simple to digests, such as sugar, soda, pastry, and white bread, should be minimized the most.


How it works?

Consuming fewer than 50 grams of carbohydrates each day causes your body to run out of energy (blood sugar). Mostly, this procedure takes 3 to 4 days to complete. After that protein and fat will be broken down for energy, which may lead to weight loss. Ketosis is the name given to this state of ketosis. 


Who should use keto diet?

Ketogenic diets are most often used for weight loss, but they may also be used to treat medical disorders like epilepsy. Further studies are needed to see whether it may benefit those with heart disease, some brain ailments, and even acne. Whether you have type 1 diabetes, check with your doctor first to see if you should attempt a ketogenic diet.
