A category of products that are suitable during the ketogenic diet, which is based on low carbohydrate intake, optimal protein intake and higher fat intake. By reducing carbohydrate intake, the body gets into a state of ketosis, in which the fat from the diet is converted into the necessary energy. Your liver begins to make substances from the fat you take in, called ketones, which serve as a source of energy (particularly for the brain).
The body thus creates a kind of alternative source of energy, which it uses if it is deficient in blood glucose.
The main advantage of a ketogenic diet is that you have a constant supply of energy, you do not feel tired, hungry and then nervous. However, if you are taking medicines for diabetes, high blood pressure or you are a breastfeeding mother, a ketogenic diet is not suitable for you.
The most popular types of ketogenic diet include:
SKD (standard ketogenic diet) - 75% fat, 20% protein, 5% carbohydrates.
CKD (cyclic ketogenic diet) - for example, 5-6 diet days and 1-2 days with high carbohydrate intake.
