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.”
