2. Weight Loss

Many people turn to the keto diet for weight loss, and some experts back the eating style as a low-carb option that can facilitate this goal. The diet includes plenty of dietary fats for sustenance; followers are instructed to get 70-80% of their calories from fat, 5 to 10 from carbs, and 10-20 from protein. Most of the carbohydrates come from non-starchy vegetables. Diets high in fat can help people feel full longer and eat less with each meal, thus promoting weight loss.
