  3. 3. 3 T he ketogenic - or keto - diet is based on high fat intake, replacing carbohydrates in the diet with fats. A dramatic reduction in carbs puts the body into a state of ketosis, which is when the body burns fat for energy, rather than carbs. When the body is in a state of ketosis, the liver turns fat into ketones, which supply energy for the brain – with the reduction in carbohydrates causing significant reductions in blood sugar and insulin levels. A ketogenic diet includes high-fat meats, fish, nuts, oils, low-carb vegetables and high-fat dairy produce, such as cheese. Foods that are high in carbohydrates should be eliminated, which includes pasta, rice, bread and baked goods, as well as legumes, root vegetables, high- starch vegetables such as potatoes and most fruits.
