First things first, a keto or ketogenic diet is a really low-carb diet, which can support you to burn fat more efficiently. Many people have already experienced its numerous proven benefits for weight loss, health, and performance. This trendy diet is also used and suggested by many doctors.
The keto in a ketogenic diet comes from the fact that following the diet's rules enables your body to produce small molecules called ketones. Ketones are an alternative fuel source for the body, that is triggered when blood sugar (glucose) is in short quantity.
Ketones are produced if you eat very few carbs and only moderate quantities of protein. The key word in this diet is fat. Your liver produces ketones from fat and these ketones then serve as a fuel source throughout the body, especially for the brain.
To be keto-friendly means that the food is allowed and won't surpass the number of carbs and protein you need to ingest in order for your body to achieve ketosis. The end goal of a correctly managed keto diet is to force your body into this metabolic state. You don’t do this through starvation of calories but deprivation of carbohydrates.
