If you have been checking out weight loss diets, it is highly unlikely that you haven’t come across the ketogenic diet. If not, on my last article I talk more in depth about what is the Keto diet and how you can start living a keto lifestyle.
The ketogenic diet or keto diet focuses on drastically cutting down carbohydrates and increasing the intake of proteins and fats. The whole premise of the keto diet is restricting carbohydrates instead of calories. When there are fewer carbs, your body breaks down fat as the main source of energy.
This leads to effective weight loss. But it’s not just weight loss that a ketogenic diet can help you achieve. A lot of studies have been conducted on how a keto diet can help and even prevent certain diseases.
