There are endless diets, workout strategies, trainers and drugs to help you lose the weight! Maybe that’s why it’s vital to analyze all your options with scrutiny before you choose a diet plan. Therefore, we bring to you a diet plan which is gaining fame quickly due to its effectiveness –The Keto Diet.

In this post we will cover the basics about the diet in the attempt to answer the haunting question-“Will it work for me?” On a side note, all the important information regarding the NATA exam is available online.

What is a Keto Diet?

A keto diet is where you follow a low carb diet so that your body starts producing ketones in the liver for fuel.

Basically, when you consume food which is high in carbs, the carbohydrates are broken down into glucose and insulin. Glucose is the primary and preferred source of energy of the body. But when you defy your body carbs, it adapts to the change and starts producing ketones in the liver for energy by burning fats, this process is called ketosis. So, the aim here is to starve the body of carbohydrates and not calories, which is the general purpose of many diets. Also, for the students reading this article, best engineering colleges in Tamil Nadu have posted all the important dates of exams and counselling on their official websites.

The 4 Types of Keto Diets:

  1. The Standard Ketogenic Diet (SKD):

In this diet you stay within 20-50 grams of net carbs per day and focus on moderate protein intake and high fat intake.

2. Targeted Ketogenic Diet (TKD):

In this version of the diet, you eat 25-50 grams of net carbs or less around 30-60 minutes before exercise.

3. Cyclical Ketogenic Diet (CKD):

This diet involves higher-carb periods where you eat a low-carb, ketogenic diet for several days followed by a couple days eating high-carb.

4. High-Protein Ketogenic Diet:

Similar to SKD, but with protein.

And remember, a low carb diet is different from a keto diet. In a low carb diet the carb intake isn’t low enough for your body to go into ketosis.

What to Eat and Not Eat on a Keto Diet?

Your nutrient intake should be around 70% fats, 25% protein, and 5% carbohydrate.


  • Meats – fish, beef, lamb, poultry, eggs, etc.
  • Leafy Greens – spinach, kale, etc.
  • Above ground vegetables – broccoli, cauliflower, etc.
  • High Fat Dairy – hard cheeses, high fat cream, butter, etc.
  • Nuts and seeds – macadamias, walnuts, sunflower seeds, etc.
  • Avocado and berries – raspberries and blackberries,
  • Other fats – coconut oil, high-fat salad dressing, saturated fats, etc.

Do Not Eat:

  • Grains – wheat, corn, rice, cereal, etc.
  • Sugar – honey, agave, maple syrup, etc.
  • Fruit – apples, bananas, oranges, etc.
  • Tubers – potato, yams, etc.

Apart from this there are great diet plans and recipes you can find online to get your diet going!

Tips to get started!

  • Drink loads of water! Water keeps you hydrated and also controls hunger levels.
  • Eat plenty of salt. You pee a lot in a keto diet and are losing a lot of electrolytes and water. So, water and salt are a must!
  • Don’t cheat on your diet. This will only slow down the weight loss process.
  • Exercise. This goes without saying that excursing would definite benefit your weight loss and regulate blood sugar levels.
  • Start fasting! These boosts ketone level consistency.

Side effects of Keto diet:

  • Mental fogginess
  • Headaches
  • Flu-like symptoms aka Keto flu
  • Weakness
  • Mild irritability or fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Bad breath

But the results are worth the trouble!

Advantages of Keto Diet:

  • Weight loss, obviously!
  • Stabilizes blood sugar levels.
  • Reduces hunger.
  • Reduces risk of diseases.
