Ketogenic diet: High-fat, high-protein, low-carb diet aids fat burn, weight loss |

Originality the ketogenic diet was used only to treat epilepsy. Now, thanks to advocacy from celebrities who've had dramatic weight loss with it, the ketogenic diet is in vogue.

And not just a little weight loss. Results from the ketogenic diet have been dramatic. Some experts question whether ketosis is dangerous for the body. But it may actually be healthy. What's ketosis? It just means the body no longer gets many carbs and so doesn't depend on carbohydrates for energy. Needing fuel to burn, the body seeks out deep tissue fat that is buried in cells, around internal organs and in the belly, thighs, buttocks, hips and under the arms. With 2/3 of the U.S. overweight and 35-percent obese, maybe it's time to rethink some of these less traditional diets, medical advisers say.Ketogenic diet: High-fat, high-protein, low-carb diet aids fat burn, weight loss |
