The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, abundant protein, low-carbohydrate diet, which is mainly used in medicine to treat uncontrollable epilepsy in children. This diet forces the body to burn fat instead of carbohydrates. Usually, carbohydrates in food are converted to glucose before being transported in the body. Glucose is also an important energy for the brain. However, if there are only a few carbohydrates in the diet, the liver will convert fat into fatty acids and ketones.

In the process of ordinary eating, the body will also produce ketone bodies, but there are not many opportunities for production, and the production amount is not enough to reach the concentration of nutritional ketosis.

The ketogenic diet eats low sugar, moderate protein, and high oil in order to allow the body to stay in nutritional ketosis for a longer time, to increase the blood ketone concentration (representing fat burning), and to determine the effect of re-burning fat.
After entering stable ketosis, you can enjoy the benefits of a ketogenic diet to your body, such as improving hormones, appetite, antioxidants, etc., and weight loss is usually a side effect.
