Ketogenic Diet Vs. Low Carb: Is There A Difference?
While all ketogenic diets are low carb, not all low carb diets are ketogenic.
The keto diet is a low carb diet that is based on the process of ketosis-a metabolic state in which your body uses ketones for fuel instead of glucose. For your body to reach a state of ketosis, carbohydrate (carb) intake must be limited to under 20 net carbs per day. (Sometimes a range of 25-30 net carbs works-it all depends on your body. Example: Your current weight, activity level, and gender all play a part in determining the number).
A Low Carb Diet is not based on ketosis & requires you to keep your carb intake to under 50 net carbs per day.
