The keto diet is said to burn ten times more fat than a standard American diet – even without exercise, research suggests. Researchers studied people who have type 2 diabetes or were at a risk of developing it.
They found that that those following the low-carb plan advocated by the diet saw the most health benefits compared to those on a typical diet, whether the latter carried out physical activity or not.
The controversial ketogenic plan is relatively high in fat and advocates moderate protein – the most well-known being Atkins and Paleo.
Fans of the diet – said to put the body into an ‘optimal’ fat burning state – include celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Rihanna. To help Women Fitness’ vegetarian friends get started, we have our top 7 keto recipes for vegetarians!
