WHY ADOPT A KETOGENIC LIFESTYLE
The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, moderate protein, low-carbohydrate way of eating. By restricting carbs and sugar, the body goes into a state of ketosis. Ketosis is the term for when the body burns fats/ketones instead of glucose/carbs/sugar.
The benefits of ketosis:
Improved Energy Levels
When first starting a ketogenic diet it is helpful to calculate your "macros", I like this one from Ruled.Me
Your ratios should be close to 5% carbs, 20-25% protein, and 70-75% fat to achieve a state of ketosis.
Not everyone on keto tracks macros, but it can be helpful, especially in the beginning to understand how they add up. Now that I have been keto for 2 1/2 years I still occasionally go back to tracking just to make sure I stay on course.
