What is the ketogenic diet?

The ketogenic diet is a very-low-carbohydrate, high-fat, adequate- protein dietary approach. The aim is to bring a metabolic shift to your body, and enter a natural physiological state called ‘Ketosis’. And this is where all the magic happens, you’ll learn more about ’ketosis’ a little later in the post.

How ketogenic diet works?

After a few days if fasting or several days of severe carbohydrate restriction (<20-30 gas per day), the body’s reserves of carbohydrate become depleted. This is important, because our body can run on two types of fuel glucose and ketones (produced by processing fats in our livers). Our body cannot store to much of glucose so it always prefers to use up all the glucose in our blood stream before shifting to using ketones/fat as fuel.

In fact our body prefers to run on fats rather glucose, it is much more cleaner fuel for us. But with the modern dietary habits we eat too much of carbohydrates which creates a surplus and as our body cannot store glucose in its natural form, the excess is converted into fat. Yahh… you’re right pinch that bulging belly it’s that same fat we are talking about which is there because you ate too much sugar/carbs…. pun intended.

Well, it is true that we gain weight for lot more reasons, but eating too much sugar and carbs is where it all begins and then they go messing up our hormonal balance which leads to other factors increasing our fat storage.

But why we are talking about gaining fat, ain’t we should focus on losing it …. no one want’s to know where it came form all we want is when it will go away 🙂

Then listen to this, ketogenic diet is a great way to lose fat rapidly and safely while eating loads of delicious foods. This makes keto, exciting, rewarding and fulfilling. Keto diet doesn’t require you to restrict yourself from food, or eat bland, crappy diet foods all it require is get into ketosis and stay in ketosis.


The hard part about keto diet is to get into ketosis and stay in ketosis. Because it takes some real efforts to get into ketosis, where you will have to understand all the foods that you can eat and what you can’t eat. Your body might feel pathetic while the transition and many see flu like symptoms, but there is nothing to worry about. This is just a phase which might last few days, at max a week. It is just your body is dealing with sugar withdrawal and adjusting itself.

To get into ketosis, the steps are obvious – stop feeding your body any source of sugar/carbs. As the body’s limited glucose reserves depletes your liver will start producing ketones which is a by-product of fat burning.

Hurrayyy we have started burning fat ….

Simply put, the ketogenic diet shifts the body’s metabolism away from using and relying on carbs; rather, it results in a virtual complete shift toward fat burning. It’s worth reiterating that there are two ways to upregulate ketogenesis: 1. Fasting; and 2. Severe carbohydrate restriction, which is synonymous with the ketogenic diet.

What Does the Ketogenic Diet Look Like?

Remember, the ketogenic diet is a very-low-carbohydrate, high-fat, adequate-protein dietary approach. Traditionally, ketogenic diets are:

  • Very high in fat (~70-80% calories)
  • Very low in carbohydrates (~5% of calories or <30 grams per day)
  • Adequate in protein (~ 15-20% of calories)

What does that translate to? Here’s what the ketogenic diet would look like on a traditional 2000 diet:

  • 165 grams of fat (75% of calories)
  • <30 grams of carbohydrate (5% of calories)
  • 100 grams of protein (20% calories)

Now, if math isn’t your thing or you simply want more personalized results, then your best bet is a personalized custom keto diet plan, which provides you a complete breakdown of fats, protein, and carbs based on your height, weight, age, sex, activity level and goal – we recommend this 8 weeks of personalized custom keto diet plan.

What types of food can you eat on a ketogenic diet?

The ketogenic diet is NOT a typical low-carbohydrate diet. In fact, VLCKD (very low carbohydrate keto diet) are distinct from other diets that restrict carbohydrate, which are unlikely to be ketogenic and are typically defined as:

  • ‘Low-carbohydrate’ diets contain less than 130 grams of carbs per day or 26% of the energy from a 2000 calorie diet.
  • ‘Moderate-carbohydrate’ diets provide between 26-45% calories from carbohydrate.

The ketogenic diet is NOT a high-protein diet. A true ketogenic diet provides moderate amounts of protein. In fact, consuming too much protein may impair ketogenesis. Whether it’s through the process of converting excess protein to carbs (glucogenesis) or simply burning it for energy (prioritising amino acids over fats), extra protein can reduce the body’s need to produce ketones.

How can you start your Keto journey in the best way possible?

It is surprising to know that nearly 7 out of 10 people who try the keto diet fail in their first month itself. So, what makes the difference between success and failure on the keto diet?

Most people on a new diet have no plan.

They learn what to eat… and not to eat. They try new recipes…

But they DON’T have a daily plan to carry them through that critical first month.

Without a plan, it’s too easy to fall for peer pressure… to be unprepared… and to make bad decisions. So why do it?

Instead, what if you can simply follow a well-crafted plan that gets you through the first month. You’re never left to figure things out on your own. Nothing is left to chance…
