A ketogenic diet must be extremely low in carbohydrate intake, plus moderate protein and a high in fat. Every person responds differently, so the amount of carbohydrates consumed can vary from 20g-50g, varying for the individual, in order to maintain a state of ketosis. This forces the body to switch from relying on sugars, and must use the stored fat and other fat intakes.
