There’re some foods you should entirely avoid while you’re on the ketogenic diet. Foods that contained high carbs make it much harder for you to lose, and also foods that are full of sugar and starch like white bread, pizza, pasta and white rice.
Carbs or carbohydrates are one of three main food types that the body needs to work correctly and does its function properly. The other two are fat and protein, because carbohydrates give the body energy. The body breaks carbs down to use directly or later. If the body doesn’t need to use the carbs for energy, it stores them in the muscles and liver to use later. Though, if the body doesn’t use these stored carbohydrates, the body converts them to fat.
Research in the New England Journal of Medicine found that people who going on a low-carb diet to lose weight lost more weight than those followed a low-fat diet after 6 months, but not after 12 months.
