The keto diet, or ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carb diet that is beneficial for everything from weight loss to neurological health, and more. It was originally developed in the 1940s to treat epilepsy and experienced a resurgence in popularity in the 1990s when the Charlie Foundation was established to promote its benefits.

The Keto Diet, or Ketogenic Diet is a high-fat diet that is moderate in protein and low in carbohydrates. This macro-nutrient ratio allows the body to switch from using carbohydrates (converted into glycogen in the liver) for energy, to using fat (converted into fatty acids and ketone bodies in the liver).

The human body is like a hybrid vehicle, relying on either carbohydrates or fat for fuel. For the most part, it cannot use both fuels simultaneously. Consuming fat allows the body to access hundreds of thousands of calories of stored fats that have been locked away during carbohydrate metabolism.

In addition to burning fat reserves and super charging weight loss, ketosis produces a clean burning metabolic fuel that has many benefits. Ketones lower production of reactive oxygen species (ROS),1 enhance mitochondrial biogenesis,2 3 and induce positive epigenetic expression.4 Because of its neurological benefits, I went on a Keto Diet in 2014, and it has been helpful in moderating my MS symptoms.

To help you get started on a Ketogenic Diet, I have compiled this page of my high-fat, low-carb Keto Diet recipes!
