The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that in medicine is used primarily to treat difficult-to-control (refractory) epilepsy in children. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates.

A keto diet can be especially useful for losing excess body fat without hunger and for improving type 2 diabetes. While you eat far fewer carbohydrates on a keto diet, you keep up moderate degrees of protein admission and may expand your admission of fat.

The decrease in carb consumption places your body in a metabolic state called ketosis, where fat, from your eating regimen and your body, is scorched for energy. The "keto" in a ketogenic diet originates from the way that it permits the body to create little fuel atoms called "ketones."

This may help keep you alert and centered.
