What is the keto diet?
The keto diet involves eating lots of ‘good’ fat, to curb hunger pangs, while cutting out carbs and eating moderate amounts of protein.
It’s said to boost energy levels and help speed up weight loss.
The diet is based on ketogenis, which is when you eat less carbs to starve the brain of glucose – forcing the body to tap into its reserve source of ketones, which the liver produces from fat stores.
It takes about three days of following the diet to bring on ketogenesis.
