What is the keto diet? Is it good to be in ketosis?

A ketogenic diet is a high-fat, moderate-protein, and low-carbohydrate diet that shifts the body’s metabolism from utilizing glucose to utilizing fat (in the form of ketone bodies) as the main source of energy [1].

The ketogenic diet promotes weight-loss due to its appetite-suppressing effects and increased fat metabolism [2]. There is also growing evidence to suggest a ketogenic diet can help with the prevention and treatment of several lifestyle diseases (cancer, depression, diabetes, obesity and heart disease) [3].
