The keto diet is one of the most popular and trusted diets around the world. Among people trying to lose weight and improve their health.
Experts suggests that supporting this low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet may promote fat loss and improve glycemic control in people with type 2 diabetes.
The keto diet may also have neuroprotective properties and help improve cognitive function in people with Alzheimer’s.
In a ketogenic diet, the carbohydrate content is between 5-10% of calories consumed, although leaner versions of the diet exist. Fat should replace the majority of carbohydrate intake and provide about 60-80% of your total caloric intake.
Protein should provide about 10-30% of energy needs, while carbohydrates are usually limited to 5%. This lack of carbohydrates forces your body to rely on fat for its main energy source instead of glucose—a process known as ketosis.
