What is the ketogenic diet?

A ketogenic eating pattern is very low in carbohydrates and moderate in protein, meaning a high percentage of total energy (kilojoule) intake comes from fat.
As fat is the main source of energy being consumed, the body must then use this (that is, break it down) as its main energy source or 'fuel'. When dietary fat is metabolised for energy, by-products called ketone bodies (molecules that are made by the liver from fatty acids) are produced which are used up by the body's tissues, muscles and the brain. This process is known as ketosis.
The body can enter ketosis during times of severe energy restriction (such as during fasting or starvation) or prolonged intense exercise, or when carbohydrate intake is reduced to around 50g per day, or less – the equivalent of around two slices of bread, and a banana.
Short-term side effects of ketosis can include fatigue, bad breath, nausea, constipation and headaches.
