The ketogenic (keto) diet is a high fat, moderate protein, and low carbohydrate diet. The main goal of a keto diet is to encourage the body to go into a state called ketosis. Ketosis is when our bodies produce ketones, which are made when the liver breaks down fats. A high carbohydrate diet, on the other hand, requires us to convert glucose and insulin into energy instead.

There are multiple benefits of going on a ketogenic diet, including lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels. The keto diet has been shown to lead to weight loss, too, as well as more energy, since fats are a great way to burn fuel. It also has been shown to reduce acne.

The suggested intake for keto diets is 70% fats, 25% protein, and 5% carbohydrates. It’s important to keep your carbs limited; they should come mostly from dairy, nuts, and vegetables. Avoid refined carbs like wheat, fruit, and starch.

When starting a ketogenic diet, you should drink plenty of water and keep your intake of sodium high. The only side effects of a keto diet primarily occur during the first few weeks, and include headaches, a lack of energy, general lethargy, flu-like symptoms, and aggravation. Other than that, there’s no real danger to starting a healthier approach to losing fat. Revised June 18th, 2016 Submit a Website
