The ketogenic diet is based on providing the body with energy from fats while minimizing the consumption of products with a large number of carbohydrates and an adequate supply of protein. It’s recognized that fats in the keto diet should constitute even 80-90% of the daily menu, taking into account its daily caloric requirement. It’s important to choose a variety of sources of fats and to focus only on good quality fats (especially polyunsaturated fatty acids).
