Ketogenic Diet (Keto) for weight loss
To induce ketosis, the ketogenic diet restricts carbohydrate consumption to fewer than 50 grams per day.
The diet replaces carbs with healthy fats including avocados, nuts, seeds, coconut oil, and olive oil.
Goals determine protein intake. Protein helps maintain muscular mass during weight loss.
Ketones are produced when the body utilises stored lipids instead of glucose. Ketosis characterizes it.
Weight loss may be facilitated by the increased fat burning brought on by ketosis.
The ketogenic diet's high fat and moderate protein composition may reduce hunger and calorie consumption.
Glycogen depletion and water loss may cause fast weight loss in the first week or two of the diet.
