You might have heard about low carb diet or a gluten-free diet or Atkins diet. The ketogenic concept is not new but it has been named after all those foundations of diets.
What does the Keto mean?
Your body runs on two different fuels. One is sugar from the carbohydrates foods. You get carbs from bread, rice. pasta, potatoes etc.
The other fuel is fat. A keto diet is a low carb. It is so low carb that your body switches to use fat for fuel. You get fat from foods like eggs, avocados, butter, olive oil & nuts etc. Your brain also observes fuel from fat.
Your body becomes zero on sugar level so it uses fat to get fuel and itself becomes a fuel-burning machine. Your body uses fat and in that process, your body turns into metabolic states where it produces ketones that fuels the brain.
That’s why the diet is called a keto diet.
Benefits of Ketogenic Diet
There are many health benefits of this diet.
- It reduces weight.

All, in summary, it is supercharged diet type to improve your health for your whole life.
If you follow this diet and make it your lifestyle, you are sure to get no urges to eat highly carb foods like you eat daily.

Sugar is alien to our body because our ancestors never ate processed foods in ancient times. So our bodies are not adaptive to such foods.
You can look younger than your age, you can run many kilometers extra than you used to. You don’t feel like eating pizza, pasta or any heavy foods. You just become instantly happy and focused in life.
Next time you go and buy keto foods, prepare your grocery list and by real natural fat foods which are highly low on carbs.
How much low carb and what to eat in Keto diet?
When starting a keto diet, you can maximum take 20 grams to 50 grams of carbs in your body. That means one potato or 2 slices of bread.
In a keto diet, you can eat eggs, vegetables that grow above the grounds, fish or any other seafood, olive oil, butter or cheese or without sugar cream.
This is really a compelling diet which you can follow and stay naturally healthy with natural fat foods.
Sometimes you want to eat some foods which have carbs. You can eat probably once a time in a month but with less quantity or I can say half plate.
Before starting a keto diet, do it with the help of doctors or nutrients. If you are suffering from diabetes or high blood pressure, you need to contact your doctor in this case and then follow the keto diet.
