What is the difference between a low-carbohydrate diet and a ketogenic diet?

They share similar principles but a ketogenic diet restricts carbohydrates even more to get the benefits of nutritional ketosis. A low-carbohydrate diet would typically limit carbohydrate intake to 130-150 grams. The ketogenic diet recommends a maximum level of 50 grams of carbohydrates a day (20-30 grams of “net carbs” without fiber) to get into ketosis.
