Diabetics, both Type 1 and Type 2 alike should adhere to a diet that is practical to follow long-term and one that meets all their nutritional needs. While this article gives a brief overview of the highly popularised ketogenic (keto) diet and its effects on diabetes, it will also discuss what you should consider when planning your diet.
The keto diet is a very low carbohydrate, high fat diet that is believed to have various health benefits. It involves a drastic reduction in carbohydrates and replacing it with fat. This reduction puts the body in a metabolic state called ketosis where the body uses fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates.
