The ketogenetic diet is a food plan that reduces caloric intake and energy acquired from carbohydrates, placing the emphasis instead on proteins and fats. This process forces the body to burn fat rather than carbs, and has shown to positively affect those with diabetes, cancer, epilepsy, and Alzheimer's. When cutting out carbohydrates to such a degree, your body enters a metabolic state known as "ketosis," which efficiently burns your body's fat, and converts said fat into ketones in the liver, a process that supplies energy to the brain. The diet has shown to be effective for many people, but there's a lot to understand before committing, and you should always consult a doctor before committing.
