The keto diet is a popular low carbohydrate, high-fat diet that promotes the consumption of high fat, low carbohydrate, and moderate protein meals. The keto diet, also referred to as the ketogenic diet was introduced in the 1920’s as a diet-focused remedy for acute epilepsy.

Patients showed drastic signs of improvement as well as moderate to extreme fat loss. The diet encourages the release of fat-soluble molecules called ketones, eventually forcing the body into a state of fat burning called ketosis.
