What Is The Keto Diet
Given its popularity (and for very good reasons), it’s probably difficult to have NOT heard about the ketogenic diet these days. But what is it really about?
I’ll summarize it in four words. “Low carb, High fat”.
The ketogenic diet, A.K.A keto diet is a low carb, high fat way of eating, where you reduce your daily intake of carbs, to a point where your body starts burning fat for fuel.
As weird as it may sound, and considering it emphasizes eating foods high in fats (healthy fats of course), it surprisingly comes with a ton of health benefits, which include, but are not limited to,
- Quick Weight loss
- Reduced blood sugar levels
- Improved insulin sensitivity
- Improved cholesterol levels
- Better heart health
- More energy and less hunger cravings
To enjoy these benefits of the ketogenic diet, you need to be in a state of “nutritional ketosis” where your body starts burning fat for fuel.
