What Is the Keto Diet?
People often think of the ketogenic diet as a way to lose weight. It is true that when you stay in ketosis (don't worry, we will explain this in a bit), you will shed excess body weight. That is just a fact of nature. And to be honest, there are a lot of people who only want to use the keto diet to lose fat and excess body weight they have never been able to lose before.
If that is your goal, you came to the right place. As a happy side-effect, you are going to realize a lot of other health benefits.
While the keto diet is becoming increasingly popular, it is certainly not new.The keto way of eating has been around for centuries as an informal way to treat epilepsy. It can be traced as far back as 500 BC as a form of fasting for multiple health benefits. Ancient Greek philosopher and physician Hippocrates taught that epilepsy was a biological and not a spiritual problem, and he recommended fasting (a form of low-carb eating like the keto diet) to treat and prevent it.
