Thanks to its ability to promote weight loss, many people are adopting the Ketogenic diet these days. This diet is high on fat and low in carbohydrates, and is considered to be the go-to diet for many to shed those extra kilos. But as tempting as it may sound, it is also considered one of the toughest diets to adapt to, given that you are allowed to consume only less than 50 grams of carbohydrates. This makes the body burn fat for energy, causing the liver to release Ketones and with this, the body enters a state called Ketosis.
