The ketogenic diet is high fat, medium protein, and a low carbohydrate diet. The number one priority is to get your body into ketosis, a state where your body runs on ketones (product of fat metabolism) for energy and burns fat efficiently.
Without ketosis, the diet cannot be considered a ketogenic diet but just a low carb diet.
So what’s the point of going on ketosis anyway? Well, simple; to activate your body’s fat burning capabilities and make your body to burn fat effortlessly.
