What is Keto Diet?

Keto diet is also known as the ketogenic diet and it is a high fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that is designed to promote weight loss. As suggested by experts, this diet is advised to be continued for more than six months, that too with breaks during period.

A recent study from Harvard University in the US had revealed that the ketogenic diet has numerous risks. Kidneys help metabolize protein, and the keto diet may overload them.
