Beginner's Guide to the Ketogenic Diet

This guide focuses on the Ketogenic diet and how an individual can begin their journey to getting and staying in ketosis.

Introduction to Keto

A keto diet is best known as a high fat, low carb diet. When an individual eats a high carb diet, they produce glucose and insulin where glucose is the primary energy source. When glucose is used, fats are stored and hence, there is a lack of fat burn. However, when you lower your carb intake, the body goes into ketosis. The ketosis state is when we produce ketones as humans, and we bring down our glucose levels and put our bodies into a metabolic phase. 

 

The above is a paraphrase description of what the keto diet is, as explained thoroughly in the website named ruled.me.
