The '''ketogenic diet''' is a high-[[fat]] adequate-[[protein]] [[low-carbohydrate diet]]. A ketogenic [[diet]] is a popular lifestyle for many [[diet]]ers trying to [[lose weight]] or to live a [[low carbohydrate]] load diet. A [[diet]] high in [[fat]] and low in [[carbohydrates]] ([[sugar]]s) that causes the body to break down fat into molecules called [[ketones]] which can be tested with urine [[ketostix]] or blood [[https://www.amazon.com/Ketostix-Reagent-Strips-100-Count-Box/dp/B0000532GH ketone test]]. [[Ketones]] circulate in the [[blood]] and become the main source of [[energy]] for many cells in the body so that you are using your fat stores for energy needed for both [[resting metabolic rate]] and [[physical activity]].

Keto diet net carbs

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat adequate-protein low-carbohydrate diet. A ketogenic diet is a popular lifestyle for many dieters trying to lose weight or to live a low carbohydrate load diet. A diet high in fat and low in carbohydrates (sugars) that causes the body to break down fat into molecules called ketones which can be tested with urine ketostix or blood [ketone test]. Ketones circulate in the blood and become the main source of energy for many cells in the body so that you are using your fat stores for energy needed for both resting metabolic rate and physical activity.

Use in medicine: A ketogenic diet is used to treat difficult-to-control (refractory) epilepsy in children.
