The ketogenic diet, or keto diet, is a low carbohydrate, high fat, and moderate protein diet. It is a diet that has become extremely popular recently and is becoming a lifestyle that many people are embracing for many health-related reasons. 


What is the Keto Diet?


The keto diet is a way of eating that has a goal of getting your body into a state of ketosis, when your body uses fat stores as fuel. 


To do this, carbohydrates are limited, and fats are emphasized. While it was originally used as a treatment for epilepsy, people now find success in weight loss journeys and memory preservation. 

 


Popular foods on the keto diet include fat bombs, meats, and nuts. Foods like breads, sugary candies, and even certain fruits are very much limited.
