People across the world are adopting the Ketogenic diet due to its weight loss abilities. This high-fat, low-carb diet, while effective in helping shed those extra pounds, is considered quite tough to get used to. This is because the diet only allows you to consume very few carbohydrates -- less than 50 grams -- per day. Due to this, the body is forced to burn fats for energy, leading to the production of Ketones by the liver. The body enters a state known as Ketosis, where Ketones are used as an energy source. While this diet is known to aid weight loss, it can get a tad bit difficult for those who enjoy their occasional sweet treats. And if you don't want to bid farewell to your favourite desserts due to this diet, we have a solution.
Here are 5 simple low-carb desserts to make on ketogenic diet:
