Originally started in the 1920s to help treat people with epilepsy, the keto diet is a high-fat, low-carb eating plan that emphasizes weight loss through burning fat. By eating foods high in fat and limiting carbs, your body can safely hit ketosis, a state in which your body uses fat—in the form of ketones—as fuel instead of carbohydrates. Because your body's preferred fuel source is carbs, it will always turn to those first. But if you eat fewer carbs, your body will burn through them faster and start breaking down fat for energy.
PD: Las dietas de Atkins y Dukan, dos famosas dietas de pérdida de peso se basan en la cetosis como método de adelgazar y ya han sido denunciadas y demostradas dañinas para el organismo a largo plazo. De hecho sus autores están expulsados del colegio de dietistas por realizar tales dietas que incumplen el juramento que juraron cumplir: mantener el nivel de salud de la gente.
