In the process of metabolism, our body is accustomed to burning carbohydrates that have changed shape to glucose and then broken down into energy. However, in the ketogenic diet, our body is ordered to no longer break down glucose, because the amount of intake is very limited, and encourages the body to burn fat.
Unfortunately, many people who undergo this diet keto have a less precise understanding. Most of them forget to replace lost carbohydrates with fat. One reason is the concern in consuming fat. In fact, consumption of fats from natural ingredients, such as milk, yogurt, fish, meat, nuts, and vegetable fats such as avocados and olive oil is a type of healthy fat that will not adversely affect health.
In addition, the principle of a keto diet is to reduce carbohydrates and replace them with fat and protein. This sometimes makes people mistaken by consuming as much fat as possible. Although fat acts as a substitute for carbohydrates, keep in mind that not all fats are good. Even if the fat is good, it does not mean that consuming it excessively will bring better health for you.
