What is the Ketogenic Diet?
The Ketogenic (keto) diet is a low carbohydrate, high fat and moderate protein diet.
This drastic reduction in carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat, puts the body in a metabolic state called ketosis.
This then makes your body more efficient at burning fat for energy plus, in the liver fat is converted into ketones which can supply energy for the brain.
All of this then causes weight loss and a reduction in blood sugar and insulin levels, which reduces the risk of diabetes, cancer, epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease.
The diet can be very tough to follow. However, with some tips and tricks to help you get started the whole journey can seem less daunting and more achievable.
