What Is The Keto Diet?

Firstly, what even is the keto diet?

To put it simply, the Keto Diet is a low carb, high fat diet.

'Keto' stands for 'Ketogenic' and the aim of the ketogenic diet is to send your body into a state of ketosis by consuming a very strict low-carb diet.

Normally our bodies use the glucose from carbohydrate foods for energy, but in the absence of glucose a process called ketosis starts.

During a state of ketosis, your body shifts from burning glucose (carbohydrates) into burning and breaking down fats known as ketones. Once your body begins to burn these fats as its primary energy source, it moves away from glucose (carbohydrates) therefore entering a state of ketosis.

Although the keto diet isn't for everyone, there are well known health benefits such as reduction in blood sugar and insulin levels. The keto diet is mainly effective in short-term weight loss, type 2 diabetes and childhood epilepsy.
