What is a Keto Diet?
A Ketogenic diet, commonly known as a Keto diet is a low-carbohydrate and high fat diet. This diet’s basic philosophy is to lose weight by taking lesser calories from carbohydrates and more from proteins and fat. So, we lower the intake of all the carbohydrates which are faster and easier to digest such as sugar, coke, cakes and flour.
As a rough estimate, this diet recommends that you take around 70 percent of your total calorie intake from fats, 20 percent from proteins and 10 percent from carbohydrates. Your exact diet plan will be made by your dietician/nutritionist according to your age, occupation and health parameters.
How does it help me in weight loss?
When we reduce the carbohydrate intake, our body runs out of blood sugar which is otherwise utilized to give us energy. To get energy, our body starts to break down the proteins and fats available within it, which helps us lose weight.
So what exactly do I eat in this Diet?
The best part of this diet is that it does not starve you. You can eat healthy fats like olive oil, proteins like chicken and fish, along with lots of low-carb vegetables and fruits.
Whom is it for?
Most people with normal health parameters can safely go for the Keto diet.
However, people with type 1 diabetes should consult their doctor before following this diet.
Moreover, only few people are aware that apart from weight loss, the Keto diet is also used to treat illnesses like epilepsy, heart and brain diseases. It also boosts your metabolism and and helps with hormonal disorders.
