The ketogenic diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares many similarities with the Atkins and low-carb diets (Mawer, 2018).
The keto diet, as a rule, is very low in carbs, high in fat and moderate in protein.When following a ketogenic diet, carbs are typically reduced to under 50 grams per day, though stricter and looser versions of the diet exist. During the process, fats should replace the majority of cut carbs and deliver approximately 75% of your total calorie intake.Proteins should account for around 20% of energy needs, while carbs are usually restricted to 5% (Kubala, 2018).
Many starters would say that switching to a keto diet can be a bit overwhelming. There could be some tedious work especially when buying stocks from the groceries and finding alternative sources of snack but in general, the basic rule is to just reduce carb intake drastically and replace everything with fat.
