What's Keto Diet?
Ketogenic diet commonly referred to as keto diet is a low carb, high fat and moderate protein diet.
Lowering the body’s carb intake induces the body into what is called a ketosis state. Ketosis is a process initiated by the body to help us cope when there is a low carbs intake. This state leads to the production of ketones through the liver’s breakdown of fat. When we are in ketosis, the body starts burning ketones as its primary source of energy.
A well-maintained keto diet is targeted at forcing the body into this very metabolic state.
Some of the benefits of optimal ketone levels include- weight loss, enhanced mental and physical performance and other health benefits.
