Dr. Josh Axe describes what a ketogenic diet is, what is is not, and how it can work when nothing else does. He states that "medical studies are now proving that the ketogenic diet can help you lose weight, boost brain health, fight neurological disease, balance hormones, and do a whole lot more."

The ketogenic diet, a very low carb diet, was created in the 1920s specifically to treat epilepsy and seizures. With a ketogenic diet, the body stops burning sugar for energy and starts burning fat. The body then creates ketones which is a fuel source for the brain.
