How does the Keto Diet work?
There are several forms of the Ketogenic Diet. The instructions differ in particular on the percentage of fat in the daily energy requirement.
In general, you can say that you shouldn't consume more than about 5 percent carbohydrates during a Ketogenic Diet. 25 to 35 percent of the daily food should be protein and 60 to 70 percent fat. Stricter diet forms of the Ketogenic Diet prescribe a fat content of up to 90 percent.
For comparison: For adults, the recommendation is usually to cover around 50 percent of the energy requirement per day with carbohydrates.
