How to Start a Ketogenic Diet


The ketogenic diet is an eating plan that focuses on consuming plenty of healthy fats, a moderate amount of protein and very few carbohydrates. This allows your body to shift into a metabolic state called ketosis in which fats are converted into ketones as a ready source of energy.

Going keto means replacing empty carbohydrates with nutrient-dense fats and healthy proteins. The ketogenic diet has been shown to offer an impressive list of health benefits, including weight loss, hunger control, improved blood sugar levels, reduced insulin response, reduced risk of diabetes and heart disease and improved brain function.
