Tried and tested by Halle Berry, Vanessa Hudgens and other celebrities, the keto diet is a low-carbohydrate, high-fat eating plan that leaves little room for errors and has a well-known reputation for rapid fat loss. For 26-year-old Maurishire Akabidavis, that diet should have been a great way for her to finally take control of her eating habits. However, a year later, she is among many former practitioners that expressed reservations for this highly restrictive eating plan.

Registered dietitian Scott Keatley told Women's Health that a typical ketogenic diet focuses on cutting carbohydrates and upping fat intake to force your body to use the latter as a form of energy. He explained that within the first week, your body will be operating on such little sugar that it has to start "gobbling up" fat for energy instead.
