Ketogenic diet is possibly one of the most loved and the most controversial diets to have emerged in the recent times. The diet requires you to restrict your intake of carbohydrates and derive energy from fats instead. Many celebrities across India and abroad are a fan of the diet. Actress Huma Qureshi has been rather vocal about her keto journey. But there are also many nutritionists who are not very kicked about the diet.

Therefore, it is always a good idea to consult an expert before you embark on this diet.
