Congratulations on taking charge of your health and wellness by choosing to start a ketogenic (keto) diet. While you may know that a ketogenic diet is a low-carbohydrate way of eating, there is much to learn about how it works and what you can do to successfully follow it.
What is a ketogenic diet?
A ketogenic diet is a very low-carbohydrate way of eating that delivers moderate amounts of high-quality dietary protein and high amounts of healthy dietary fat. This reduction in carbohydrate intake helps the body shift toward a state that promotes the breakdown of fats (from the diet and your body) to produce ketone bodies and enter a state known as “ketosis.”
When following a ketogenic diet, your brain, as well as other organs, depends on ketones as an energy source. Ketones are produced in the body once you have reached a state of ketosis and can be measured in the blood and urine to ensure that you stay in ketosis during the keto diet.
