A Ketogenic diet or popularly known as the keto diet is normally known as a diet with low-carb intake. In this diet, ketones are produced by the liver which becomes the primary energy source for our body. People also refer this diet as low carb high fat, low carb diet, etc.
In general, the food we eat is high in carb and to convert it in energy our body produces glucose and insulin. For our body, it’s easy to produce Glucose, which can later be used as energy source; thus our body chose it over other energy sources. Firstly, insulin is produced to process the glucose and it carries the glucose across the bloodstream in our body.
Since the body is using glucose as its primary energy source, fats are not required; hence they get stored. Therefore, on a higher carb diet, which we usually intake, our body uses the glucose as the energy source, resulting in storing the fat. Thus, by lowering the carb intake, the body goes into the ketosis state. It is a natural state, which our body follows to help us when we eat less food. In this process, ketones are produced in the liver by breaking down the fats.
The aim to maintain keto diet is to force your body to go into this metabolic state. But no one has to do this by starving, instead you have to lower your carb intake.
Our body is quite adaptive, if you overload it with fats, rather than carbs, it will start burning the ketones as its primary source of energy rather than glucose. Maintaining optimal ketone level have several health benefits, helps you in reducing weight as well as provide other mental and physical performance benefits.
