The ketogenic diet is low carb diet that offers many health benefits, its counted in the nutritional diet, that’s because of the known celebrity Halle Berry who was eating a keto diet for years to control her diabetes. It emphasizes lesser amount of protein and high amount of fat, such as cheese and avocados. Sounds weird, but this helps in removing carbohydrates, as the body starts burning the fat through this ketosis.
Our body takes two days roughly to enter at this state, as shared with NBC by dr. Pegah Jalali New York University Comprehensive Epilepsy Center.

Nearly 1 gram of protein per unit of body weight (kilogram or pound) is permitted. By reducing fiber from food with carbohydrates, one can get to know the net carbs, as explained by Mattinson.
Maybe it’s different in everyone’s case, but most of the people follow the ketosis diet that includes 20 and 50-gram net carb every day, Mattinson shared with the publication. One more thing that adds up to keto is even after consuming a wrong meal that has been served, it will still burn the carbs instead of fat.
As per the studies, keto holds some benefits, a paper published in Nutrition, in 2012, states that this diet can help diabetics in maintaining the blood sugar levels, despite consuming excess amount of fat and cheese. A
Additionally, this diet helps in reducing weight, as shown by studies. It’s advisable, that before going for keto diet one should concern with their health physician, Mattinson added. She is of the opinion, a diet that eradicates all the important food groups than it’s a red flag from her end.
