The Keto Diet is currently one of the most popular fad diets for people of all ages, and there’s a big reason why. Those who follow the Keto Diet correctly can lose large amounts of weight in a short period of time, simply by drastically decreasing the amount of carbohydrates ingested on a daily basis.
Other types of diets that eliminate carbohydrates, like the Atkins Diet or the South Beach Diet, follow similar principles, but are not true Keto Diets.
Unlike the Atkins or South Beach Diets, which are also low carb diets, the Keto Diet also focuses on a high intake of fat each day. While following the Keto Diet, your fat intake will be the greatest percentage of your daily calories.
Yes, you read that correctly. A diet that requires the majority of your calories to come from fat? Sounds like it’s not even a diet at all. While eating large amounts of fat sounds like the exact diet everyone would want to be on, it is much more complicated than what it sounds like. This will allow your body to enter a state of Ketosis in which it burns fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates.
