The keto (low-carb, high-fat) diet is all the rage. Try these recipes to get a taste of what it is all about.
Dr Siddhant Bhargava, Co-Founder, Fitness and Nutritional Scientist, Food Darzee, says, “Clinically, the Keto diet is used in neurological remedies, most particularly to diminish hard-to-control seizures in children. The Keto diet also highlights weight reduction through the process of fat-burning. The goal here is to rapidly shed the unwanted kilos, and eventually feel fuller with lesser cravings, while positively enhancing mood, cerebral focus and boosting energy levels. By cutting down on the carbs consumption and instead nourishing the immune system with fats, you securely enter a state of ketosis. This is exactly when the body breaks down both nutritional and stored body fats into elements called ketones. Your fat-burning system now relies predominantly on fat – instead of sugar – for energy. As compared to other low-carb diets, the Keto diet’s extreme carb limitations (about 20 net carbs a day or less) based on the version and the measured shift into ketosis are what set this progressively popular diet trend apart.”
