Despite the many different kinds of diets that you have no doubt heard about in your life, there is bound to be a few that are new to you. One of these in particular might be the Ketogenic Diet, also known as the Keto Diet, which is a high-fat, low-carbohydrate regimen. The theory behind the high-fat, low-carbohydrate ratio is that the body will rely on fat for energy instead of on carbohydrates, and therefore the body will become more lean as a result of having less fat stored in the body. Ideally, the Keto Diet will allow the body to go into ketosis, or a metabolic state where ketones - which are fats - are burned for energy instead of glucose - the carbohydrates. Those that follow the Keto Diet also consume just the right amount of protein that the body needs on a daily basis. Contrary to some of the other diets that are in existence, the Keto Diet does not focus on counting calories. The focus is instead centered on the fat, carbohydrate, and protein make-up of the food as well as on the weight of the portions. But what led to the creation of the Keto Diet?
