Your body is a fat-burning machine...but only if you make it one! First used by ancient peoples as a treatment for epilepsy, a high-fat, low-carb diet changes your body's mechanics so instead of burning glucose for energy, it burns pure fat. Over the centuries, such diets have provided medical relief to many, but in the 20th century, it was discovered the weight loss potential of modified versions of this treatment could burn more fat than any other diet. So the ketogenic diet was born. Since then, it has been adopted by millions who hope to shed pounds and stay healthy without sacrificing some of their favorite foods. In this Newsweek Special Edition, we lay out a complete guide to the keto diet and break down the benefits of entering ketosis and staying there.
