Dr. Jimenez Functional Medicine Ketogenic Diet Explained. A ketogenic diet, or keto diet, is a diet, which turns your system into a fat-burning machine. It has some initial side effects on health and functionality and many advantages for weight loss.
A ketogenic diet is comparable to other rigorous low-carb diets, like the Atkins diet plan or LCHF (low carb, higher fat). These diets wind up being ketogenic more or less by accident.
The main difference between LCHF and keto is that protein is restricted in the latter. A keto diet plan is made specifically to lead to ketosis. It’s possible to measure and adapt to optimal ketone amounts for wellness or bodily and psychological performance. Below, you can learn how to use keto to achieve your personal goals. We cover and explain the concept for a clear understanding.
