A ketogenic diet is a diet that puts your body in a state of ketosis,which allows you to use fat for energy I.e using fat to lose fat….. Normally the body uses glucose from carbohydrate as it primary source of energy but when in ketosis It will not.
How do we achieve this
By not supplying your body with carbs and sugar . This reduces your stored glucose and your blood sugar and insulin level reduces,then your body starts looking for an alternate source of fuel(fat) releases it and burns it for energy I.e Decrease in glucose=increase in the metabolism of fat
