Vegetarian Keto Plan For A Day

9 Mar ‘24 By AnikKetogenic Diet

The ketogenic diet, or keto diet, is a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake (usually less than 50 grams per day) and increasing fat consumption to induce a metabolic state called ketosis. In ketosis, the body burns fat for energy instead of carbohydrates. This diet typically consists of 70-80% fat, 20-25% protein, and less than 10% carbohydrates. Benefits may include weight loss, improved blood sugar control, increased energy, and mental clarity. However, it's essential to consult with a healthcare professional before starting the keto diet, as it may not be suitable for everyone.
