The Ketogenic Diet has been around for some time now, and I guess that’s it’s not difficult to see the reason why.
If you’re new to the concept, the Ketogenic Diet is based on consuming high quantities of protein (think bacon, butter, cheese) and massively reduced quantities of carbohydrates. Replacing carbs with fats apparently puts the body into a state called ketosis, where it becomes very efficient at consuming it’s own body fat as a source of energy
I mean, let’s be honest – a diet where you can consume meat, cream, cheese, butter and bacon all sounds to good to be true, right?
Having said all that, I have to come out right up front and say that personally I was somewhat more than a bit skeptical of it all. As someone who’s grown to love a diet that’s high in vegetable content and low in protein (especially animal protein), the idea of eating all that high fat content seems to be just plain wrong. And what happens when your body fat runs out?
All the same, I have to admit that the recipes over the next pages that I’ve gathered together are very tempting (nb: I tried some of them but not all), maybe enough to give the keto diet a try even?
