Keto diet is a diet alteration with an increase in fat and protein and a decrease in carbohydrates. These diets were altered to treat epilepsy. This diet will help to manage the weight reduction as it substitutes while changing the metabolism and force to work for with stored fat. When the body utilizes stored fat, weight reductions are visible, but it is not suitable for long term as it has the own problems. A short period of three months course will increase protein as well as helps to manage the deficiency and increase the stamina with proper weight reduction.
