What is Keto

The origin of Keto diet dates back to 1920. It is when doctors began using it to manage seizures among patients with epilepsy.


Ketogetnic diet began with a nutritional plan made of carbohydrates, fat, and protein which forces the body to use fat instead of carbohydrates for energy. This process is called ketosis and it created two acids in the blood, ketones and decanoic acid, which our brain and body use to function.

A keto diet is devoid of carbs (carbohydrates). It and is different from normal dietary recommendations, where emphasis is for low fats. A normal keto diet will have 75-80% fats, less than 5% carbs and 15-20% protein.
