The ketogenic diet (Keto) is a low-carb, high-fat diet that aims to put the body in a metabolic state called ketosis. In this state, the body burns fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates. Proponents of the diet claim that it can lead to weight loss, improved mental clarity, and better blood sugar control.

To follow a Keto diet, you should consume high amounts of healthy fats (such as olive oil, avocado, nuts, and fatty fish), moderate amounts of protein (such as poultry, eggs, dairy, and legumes), and very limited amounts of carbohydrates (such as fruits, vegetables, and grains).
