Ketogenic Diet - What is it?

A new diet trend that has gained popularity both in the medical community and among everyday health seekers is the ketogenic diet.  The ketogenic diet is based on the body’s ability to switch into a state known as “ketosis,” in which its primary fuel source changes from glucose, converted from carbohydrates, to ketones, which are converted from fat.  While this diet is effective for people looking to lose a few extra pounds, it is also becoming a leading method in the treatment of several chronic diseases, including epilepsy, cancer, and diabetes.
