The Ketogenic diet, better known to everyone now as Keto is still one of the most popular diet plans of the decade. It has one simple premise. Eat anything you want, except for carbohydrates. The only sad part about that is carbs also happen to be delicious! Luckily there are some cheats you can use to satisfy your cravings while staying true to your diet goals.
The idea behind keto is that by increasing your intake of proteins and fats while eliminating carbohydrates encourages the body to rely on a new energy source. When proteins and fats become the primary nutrient, the body starts generating ketone bodies which replace glucose that is usually generated when the body digests carbs. This has a host of benefits for the body including lower blood sugar, better results from exercise and rapid fat loss as long as a calorie deficit is maintained.
