We all expected keto diet to be just another diet fad that would die its own death. But this diet is booming and increasingly getting adopted. The biggest reason being that it helps people lose weight in a shorter span of time. To give you a brief about how this diet works, you have to get most of your daily calories from fats (60 per cent), followed by moderate protein (30 per cent) and minimum carbs (10 per cent).

When your body does not get enough carbs, it utilises fat for energy. While it helps people lose weight faster and has even helped many manage their diabetes and skin issues, there are others who complain of issues like constipation, headaches and irritability - because it lacks fiber!
So when it was observed that the keto fever was far from being over, entered a new version of the diet dubbed Keto 2.0. The new version of the diet has been launched with a few changes in the original plan:

- Keto 2.0 is more flexible.
- It addresses the concerns of the medical fraternity about the high intake of saturated fats.
What exactly is Keto 2.0?

The original keto diet was a concern for the doctors as it increased the LDL levels due to the high intake of saturated fats coming from animals. The new version encourages you to use plant-based healthier oils like olive, peanut and plant-based high-fat foods like nuts, seeds, avocado, healthier meat like fish, which will keep the LDL levels healthy. (Most of you may already be following it without realising)

Keto 2.0 is high in fiber, low in net carbs from plant-based foods. A version of it also allows you to take up your carb intake by 20 per cent, in comparison to the original 10 per cent. You have to limit your intake of fats from butter and bacon and have more nuts, vegetables, fruits and leaner proteins (like fish). This makes the diet pretty much like the Mediterranean diet, which is called the healthiest diets of all. But you should also know that increasing your carb intake, even if by a notch, might kick you out of ketosis - so see how your body behaves.

This new version is supposed to be highly beneficial for women suffering from any hormonal imbalance. The healthier plant-based fiber and fats have a positive impact on the hormones.
Whether the new version will be as effective as the original one to lose weight still remains a question. But this version is definitely the healthier and more sustainable one.
