National Keto Day

National Keto Day is not just about diet, it’s about lifestyle! The point is that a person limits the consumption of carbohydrates as much as possible, replacing them with fats and proteins. The body reacts to this in a unique way: it begins to intensively burn fats, using them as fuel. Have you tried this food?


The ketogenic diet was developed in 1921 by Dr. Wilder. He collected numerous data and concluded that severe carbohydrate restriction has a positive effect on patients suffering from epilepsy. Previously, fasting was used for this – it cannot be called ineffective, but how long can you refuse food? The doctor was sure that the proposed regimen contributes to the production of the same amount of ketone bodies, but at the same time the body is saturated, and the person is not exhausted.

The discovery began to be effectively used for therapeutic applications. The keto diet was first used at the Mayo Clinic. It was so good for epilepsy that it even replaced pharmaceutical products in 1938 and beyond! Gradually, it was standardized – it came down to us almost unchanged. Over time, the hype subsided – medicine did not stand still and offered new treatment options.

The diet became popular again in the 1990s, and even now almost every person who has thought about losing weight at least once in his life knows about it. National Day was created in 2019 at the initiative of the American nutritional supplement retailer The Vitamin Shoppe. Learn more about the ketogenic diet today!
