What is the Ketogenic Diet?

 

Q. What do you think about the Ketogenic Diet?

 

A. The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low carbohydrate, adequate protein diet. With this ratio, the body utilizes fat rather than carbohydrates for energy.

 

The popular Atkin’s diet is a ketogenic diet recommended for weight loss.  The diet includes intake of many high protein/fatty foods as well as fruits and vegetables aimed to suppress one’s appetite.  Before starting a new diet, consult with your doctor or a registered dietitian nutritionist first to ensure the diet is safe and meets your nutritional needs.
