The ketogenic diet or for short keto diet is a low carb diet, high-fat diet, and moderate protein diet. Because of that, your body burns fat for energy instead of burning carbs. As you can imagine this involves reducing your carbohydrate intake and increase your fat intake. Which puts your body into a metabolic state named ketosis.
In this stage, your body becomes efficient at burning fat. Because it doesn’t have any carbs it has to produce energy from something else. And that something else is fat, which is processed by the liver and turn into a compound called ketone, used by the body as an energy source.
On a typical diet, your body will use carbs as a primary source of energy, which is turned into the liver in glucose. Because of that, your body will no longer need fat, which is stored in fat cells. But when food intake is low your body enters the ketogenic state burning body fat. This is a normal and natural process.
The idea of this diet is to make your body enter this stage and burn fat without starving yourself, and there are many health advantages to this including weight loss. Another way to enter this stage is by fasting. Continue reading “Introduction to The Keto Diet”
