So What's a Naija Keto Diet Sef?

According to, a keto diet is a low carb diet, where the body produces ketones in the liver to be used as energy.

When you eat much carbohydrates (yam, rice, potatoes, bread, etc) your body will produce glucose. And since the glucose will be used as the main form of energy, your fats are not needed and are therefore stored in your body. But by lowering the intake of carbohydrates, the body is induced into a state known as ketosis.

When you eat plenty foods rich in fats and take away carbohydrates, your body will begin to burn ketones as the primary energy source. Optimal ketone levels offer many health, weight loss, physical and mental benefits.

The ketogenic diet essentially uses your body fat as an energy source – so there are obvious weight loss benefits. On keto, your insulin (the fat storing hormone) levels drop greatly which turns your body into a fat burning machine.

PS: If you intend to go on a keto diet, always consult your doctor or fitness/health specialist first.. for guidance on what type of exercises you can do.
