Getting on the high-fat, low- carb nutrition plan known as the Ketogenic diet is simple. All you have to do is consume plenty of healthy fats, moderate amounts of protein, and severely limit your carb intake—to less than 20 net grams per day.
The goal behind this restrictive diet isn’t just to brag about your new eating resolution but to reach the elusive ketosis. This is a metabolic state in which your body is forced to switch from burning glycogen (carbs) to ketone bodies (fat) as its main source of energy.
And here’s the tricky part. Knowing whether you’re in ketosis is the tricky part. In fact, telling what’s going inside of your body is easier said than done.
Here’s the good news. The following infographic gives you the low down on the main symptoms of ketosis—all presented in a simple and compelling visual manner.
