The ketogenic diet has been around for nearly a century, but this high-fat, low-carb diet is only now finding its way into the mainstream as a means to lose weight and help improve overall health. The keto diet limits carbohydrates to as low as 20 grams a day, depending on your goals. High-fat diets have been shown to help control hunger and aid in weight loss. They have also been touted for improving cognitive function.
Welcome to keto 2.0 — a new and much-improved version of the low-carb eating plan that ditches red meat and poultry and focuses on nonstarchy vegetables, nuts and seeds. In this plant-forward plan, you can reap all the benefits of a keto diet, such as weight loss, increased energy and brain health support, but in a cleaner, more sustainable way.
