A ketogetic diet is a high fat, moderate protein and low carb-25 gms/day diet; which prompts the liver to produce ketones. A ketone body is a fat soluble water molecule which is made up of betahydroxybutarate and acetoacetate.This ketone body has twice the amount of energy that a carbohydrate/glucose molecule has; and can travel through the blood-brain barrier to our cells; thus amplifying the energy or ATP production in the mitochondria of our cells.
It has tremendous benefits to the body and brain, as cells are multiplying rapidly.
