So what is the keto diet? Where does it come from and why is it so wildly successful?
The year was 1921, Rollin Woodyatt- endocrinologist, found that through starvation and a high fat low carbohydrate diet you can produce 3 water soluble compounds acetone, β-hydroxybutyrate and acetoacetate. Together they are referred to as keytone bodies. This was then used to for the Ketogenic diet- by Russel Wilder, that aided people with epilepsy.
So why is the keto diet so successful with weight loss? Well mostly because it helps us put our body into a state ketosis, where the main energy is coming from keytone bodies and not glucose levels. Many people that use the keto diet found that they are able to think more clearly, work harder in more stringent situations, and most of all handle stress easier.
