You might have heard about “keto”, “ketogenic diet” or “ketosis” in various magazines, internet, etc. In the recent years, keto diet’s popularity has grown significantly.
If you don’t know about these terms, or still confused about what is a ketogenic diet and ketosis is, then let me explain you in brief:
“A ketogenic diet a low carb and high fat along with moderate protein diet. Its main goal is to get your body in a metabolic state known as ketosis.”
“Ketosis is a state where your body is deprived of glycogen (sugar) stores; hence it tries to find another fuel source. When it occurs the fat stored starts converting into ketones by the liver which becomes the main source of fuel for the body”.
