What is the keto diet?
Ketogenic diets vary, but they all have one main goal, which is to limit carbohydrate intake. Through a low-carb, high-fat diet, the ketogenic diet aims to shift the body’s metabolism from using glucose as its primary fuel source to using ketone bodies. This metabolic state is known as “nutritional ketosis”.
The goal of the ketogenic diet is to consume approximately 5% of carbohydrates, 20% of protein, and 75% of dietary fat. For a person consuming 2,000 calories per day, this equates to 100 calories (25 grams) of carbohydrates, 400 calories (100 grams) of protein, and 1,500 calories (167 grams) of fat.
