The Ketogenic Diet or Ketosis Diet involves a high fat, adequate protein and low carbohydrate consumption. As it involves a high amount of fat, the diet forces the body to burn fat instead of carbohydrates. The liver converts this fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies to replace glucose and act as an energy source, especially to the brain.
