What is the ketogenic diet?
The ketogenic diet is a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet that focuses on consuming foods that are high in healthy fats, moderate in protein, and very low in carbohydrates. The goal is to shift the body into a state of ketosis, where it primarily burns fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates.
