WHAT IS KETO DIET?
Ketogenic diets focus on enhancing the process of Ketosis. Ketosis is a natural process wherein the body pledges to help you survive when the food intake is low. During the ketosis process, your body produces ketones which are come from the breakdown of liver fats.
The whole purpose of this diet is to induce the body into the ketosis metabolic state. The main aim here is not to do this through the starvation of calories but instead aim to do this through the starvation of carbs. Which means that the ketogenic diet is carbs-free or very low on carbs. The lower the composition of carbs in your keto diet, the quicker your body produces ketones.
Ketones are produced by the body only if the consumption of carbs is low and you moderate your protein consumption. They are often used as fuel throughout the body (especially the brain).
