You’ve heard by now that diets with low level of carbohydrates are very effective for weight loss. Also they have positive impact on many diseases such as Alzheimer’s, diabetes, cancer and epilepsy. The ketogenic diet is based precisely on the principles of a low carbohydrate intake. Daily recommended carbohydrates intake is 20-50 grams. Although every diet with less then 100 grams of carbohydrates per day is low-carb diet, but so many carbs wont allow your body to come into a state of ketosis.
What is ketosis ?
When you don’t get enough carbohydrates, your body begins to seek another source of energy for your muscles. In the absence of glucose, it starts to burn fat and use them as fuel. When this happens, you actually bring your body into a state known as ketotis. And then begins the process of your weight loss.
