What is the Ketogenic Diet?
Well now I am not doing it, The Ketogenic diet is a low carb and high fat plan that shares similarities to the Atkins and Low-Carb diets. This diet involves drastically reducing carbohydrates and replacing them with fats. When this happens, the body becomes incredibly efficient and can turn all of the fat into energy.
Types of Keto Diets
Traditionally, the ketogenic diet is an incredibly low-carb diet with moderate protein and high fat. Traditionally, the ketogenic diet is about 75% fat, 20% protein, and less than 5% carbohydrate. The exact ratio can vary depending on whether your focus is mostly endurance or bodybuilding. Still, any good guide for beginners will go over all the information you need to know about this fascinating yet very non-traditional way of eating.

What Foods to Eat on a Keto Diet?
It depends on how you structured your diet, but here are some examples of popular keto-compliant foods. Sticking to about 20g of net carbs per day can be easily achieved with snack-type things like celery sticks or cucumber slices eaten with or without tuna dip. For cooking, you can make things like pepper stir fry. I’ve had great success with that.
Alternatives to the Ketogenic Diet, Well now I am not doing it
Before dismissing the Ketogenic diet, there are alternatives to it. One is the Modified Atkins Diet (MAD). The MAD restricts carbohydrates instead of protein like the keto does. Another option is to use nutritional ketosis (NK) because it’s restrictive enough that your body doesn’t think you’re starving; you’ll get plenty of fat and protein.
