What is the Ketogenic Diet?

The Ketogenic diet alters what we as people have looked at as “healthy” for years. We have heard “low fat.” If you eat fat, you will get fat. Turns out, this is far from the truth. Carbs and sugars are what cause the weight gain. When you keep your carb and sugar intake as low as possible and eat high fat foods, your body will then make fat your main energy source. High fat foods include ground beef, eggs, avocados, olive oil, coconut oil, steak, etc. (I will include a list in a later post). Adjusting to this perspective, is hard to do. I was so scared thinking “Oh my god. I can’t gain one more pound!” This decision was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
