The ketogenic diet is a low-carbohydrate, high-fat eating approach that aims to induce a state of ketosis in the body. In ketosis, the body shifts from using glucose as its primary energy source to using fat-derived molecules called ketones.
The typical macronutrient distribution in the ketogenic diet is high in fats (usually around 60-75% of total calories), moderate in protein (about 20-30% of total calories), and low in carbohydrates (generally around 5-10% of total calories).
Keto-friendly foods include meats, poultry, fish, eggs, non-starchy vegetables, healthy fats (such as avocados, nuts, and olive oil), and dairy products with low carbohydrate content

Foods high in carbohydrates, like grains, sugars, and starchy vegetables, are typically restricted.
The ketogenic diet is associated with weight loss, improved insulin sensitivity, reduced inflammation, enhanced mental clarity, and some individuals experience better energy levels. It has also been explored as a potential therapy for certain medical conditions like epilepsy.
Some individuals may experience the "keto flu" during the initial adaptation phase, which can include symptoms like fatigue and headaches. Nutrient deficiencies and gastrointestinal issues are possible if not managed properly. Long-term sustainability and potential drawbacks should also be considered.
Yes, exercise can be integrated into a ketogenic lifestyle. However, during the adaptation phase, energy levels might fluctuate. It's important to ensure adequate hydration and electrolyte intake, especially when engaging in physical activity.
The ketogenic diet may not be suitable for individuals with certain medical conditions, including kidney issues, pancreatitis, or metabolic disorders. Pregnant or breastfeeding women, athletes with high energy demands, and those with a history of disordered eating should approach the diet cautiously and under medical supervision.
Ketosis can be monitored by measuring ketone levels in the blood, breath, or urine. Blood ketone meters provide the most accurate measurement.
While it can be more challenging, it's possible to follow a vegetarian or vegan ketogenic diet by focusing on plant-based sources of fats and proteins, such as avocados, nuts, seeds, and non-starchy vegetables.
The sustainability of the ketogenic diet varies from person to person. Some find it sustainable and enjoy the benefits, while others may find the restrictions challenging to maintain over time.

Note: Before embarking on the ketogenic diet, it's advisable to consult a healthcare professional, especially if you have underlying health conditions or concerns. This information is for general educational purposes and is not a substitute for personalized medical advice.
