The Keto or Ketogenic Diet is a very-low carbohydrate diets but allows you to increase fat intake. By lowering the amount of carbs intake, turns your system in a ketosis state.

At this state, the body becomes efficient in burning fat as source of energy. Furthermore, the fats in the liver will be converted into ketones which becomes the energy source for the brain.

Some uses this diet as their method of losing extra pounds without the feeling of hunger. Others incorporate Keto salts like Ketond for faster results. However, before using these supplements, physician's advice is highly recommended. 

There are several types of Keto diet.

The standard ketonic diet is a very low carb (5%) , high fat (75%), and moderate protein (20%) scheme.

The cyclical ketonic diet is a scheme that includes days of eating higher on a “cheat day”. For example, 5 days of standard ketonic diet followed by 2 days of higher carb meals.

The targeted ketogenic diet is used by individuals who are into gyms. This diet lets you increase the amount of carbs during workouts.

The last type is the high-protein ketogenic diet. Like the standard ketogenic diet, it is also a very low carb (5%) scheme but increases the amount of protein (35%) thus reducing the fat intake (60%).

Aside for weight-loss, Keto diet is also recommended for diabetic individuals. Diabetic persons lack insulin, when they eat  large amount of carbs, their blood sugar shoots. Since there are less carbs in the diet, there are only few amounts of carbohydrates digested and turned into glucose which lessen the amount of sugar in the body.

There are also other benefits of a Keto Diet like prevention of heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, polycystic ovary syndrome, brain injuries and acne.

In following the keto diet, not only for weight-loss, but for other purposes limits some food intake like sugary food, grains or starches, fruits, beans and legumes, root vegetables and tubers, high-carb alcohols and even some condiments.

The good news is that you are allowed to increase some food in your meals likes meat, fatty fish, eggs, butter and cream, cheese, nuts, healthy oils and plenty of avocados.
