Discovered by Russel Wilder in 1921, the ketogenic diet was derived as a solution for pediatric epilepsy. But it was eventually reimagined as a weight loss formula. The idea is to stick to high fats, moderate proteins, and low carbs.
The macronutrient breakdown is approximately 55% to 60% fat, 35% protein, and from 5% to 10% carbs totaling to around a 2,000 caloric intake for a day.
