The keto diet is a high-fat, low-carb diet that focuses on putting the body in a state of ketosis where it burns fat for fuel instead of carbs. This leads to significant weight loss and increased energy. Despite the misconception that the keto diet is too restrictive, there are a variety of options such as clean proteins, nuts, seeds, oils, and even full-fat yogurt that can be consumed. It's crucial to monitor the intake of macronutrients to maximize the diet's benefits. It also helps break addiction to carbohydrates and reduces sugar and sweets cravings. Additionally, one cup of cruciferous vegetables is recommended for each loosely grabbed handful. The diet has also been reported to reduce inflammation and improve overall health.
