Burn fat, not sugar, the ketogenic way
A ketogenic diet is not for everyone.
That being said, I don’t view it as a “diet” because it is not – it is a lifestyle.
The ketogenic lifestyle is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet, which reduces inflammation in the body.
I have been following the ketogenic diet (also known as keto) for almost a year now and find many health benefits for myself.
I dropped that extra water weight and bloat, have increased energy and endurance in my runs, and never feel hungry.
The diet is not an easy one to follow – that’s for sure. It is a very specific formula of 75% fat, 25% protein (which I derive from fish and eggs since I am pescatarian), and 10% carbs.
The ketogenic diet is different from the Paleo diet because it does not freely allow for fruits since fruit does have a high percentage of sugar, albeit natural sugar
