How Keto Diet works?
The keto diet is a high-fat, low-carb diet moderate-protein intake diet. It causes your body to burn fats instead of carbohydrates. In a normal physical state, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted into glucose, which is then used for producing energy.
However, if carbohydrates are scarce, the body will start converting fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies to replace glucose as an energy source. An increased level of ketone bodies in the blood, is a state known as “ketosis”.
Ketosis is a metabolic condition that occurs when the amount of carbohydrates in your diet is so small that the body simply must use fatty acids for producing energy.
When the body is short of carbohydrates, it begins to consume fat reserves, and as a result a weight loss occurs.
During the diet, it is important to eliminate low-carb foods from your diet and focus on fats and proteins. Here is a list of products that can and cannot be used with the keto diet.
