I’ve been hearing a lot about the Ketogenic diet since the beginning of the year and now it’s become so popular. Never heard of the keto diet before? Well, it’s a low carb, high fat diet. I would say that it’s very similar to the Atkins diet that gained popularity in the early to mid 2000’s. It involves eating less carbs and replacing it with fat which then helps your body burn fat like crazy. For more detailed info on how the process works, you should read this guide from Ruled.me.
