What is the Ketogenic Diet?

Keto foods

Historically, the Ketogenic diet was discovered in the early 20th century and was (yet still is) designed as a solution for individuals suffering from epilepsy.

In the 1950's and 1960's, natural bodybuilders used to apply low carb without actually knowing the mechanisms behind it -- typically with a fish, super greens, liver and water diet. Additionally it is the diet that people historically adhered to naturally before refined sugars became so readily available.

The Ketogenic Diet has maintained its status of effectiveness and is gaining more attention than ever. This is because people are finding that it helps to lose weight faster.

The Ketogenic diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet that causes weight loss and provides health benefits. It involves significantly reducing carbohydrate intake while increasing protein to the levels necessary to maintain muscle mass with the calorie ratios approximating 70 percent fat, 25 percent protein and 5 low-glycemic carbohydrates. That's it.
