Keto diet is a low carb, moderate protein and a high fat diet. The full form of Keto is Ketogenic. This form of diet puts the body into a metabolic state known as ketosis.
When your body is in the state of ketosis the liver produced ketones which become the main energy source for the body.
The ketogenic diet is also referred to as keto (key-toe) diet, low carb diet, and low card high fat diet (LCHF)
This Diet is based around the premise that your body was designed to run more efficiently as a fat burner than a sugar burner.
Benefits of Ketogenic Diet-
Weight Loss: Because the ketogenic diet is using body fat as an energy source, your body will begin to burn the unwanted fat causing obvious weight loss benefits. On keto, your insulin (the fat storing hormone) levels drop which allows your fat cells to travel to the liver and get converted into ketones. Your body effectively becomes a fat burning machine.
Control Blood Sugar: Keto naturally lowers blood sugar levels due to not eating as many carbs so your body can't produce glucose.Keto has been shown to have huge benefits for people that are pre-diabetic or have Type II diabetes.
Better Appetite Control: When eating a diet that is heavy in carbs you can often find yourself hungry a lot sooner than you expected after eating a meal. Because fats are more naturally satisfying they end up leaving our bodies in a satiated state for much longer. That means no more random cravings along with feeling like you're going to collapse if you don't get something in you immediately.
