A keto diet is, simply put a low carb, high fat diet (LCHF) but under strict parameters. It is one of the toughest diet schedules to stick to but promises quick results as it burns fat efficiently. Keto is more a lifestyle change than a simple diet fad and those who aspire to lose weight under this regime will need to seriously consider that this diet must be continued long term for full mental, physical and performance benefits to happen.
A ketogenic diet reaches its goal by putting your body into a metabolic state by starving it of carbs, instead of calories. When you eat excessive fats and excluding carbs from your diet your body begins to burn ketones as its primary energy source which leads to the quick weight loss experienced by many. As with all diets, please do check with your doctor is this one would be suitable if you are suffering from any health issues.
