A strict keto diet requires as little as 20 grams of net carbs per day in order to sustain weight loss. If that sounds restrictive, that's because it is. 20 grams is less carbs than what you'd find in one medium-sized apple, for perspective. On the keto diet, 80 percent of the diet is comprised of fat, 15 percent is protein, and a mere 5 percent of calories come from carbohydrates. Other low-carb diets calls for 20 to 60 grams of carbs a day, while the average person's diet is comprised of 55 percent carbohydrates, 30 percent fat, and 15 percent protein.

PD: Las dietas de Atkins y Dukan, dos famosas dietas de pérdida de peso se basan en la cetosis como método de adelgazar y ya han sido denunciadas y demostradas dañinas para el organismo a largo plazo. De hecho sus autores están expulsados del colegio de dietistas por realizar tales dietas que incumplen el juramento que juraron cumplir: mantener el nivel de salud de la gente.
