What is the Ketogenic diet?

The Ketogenic diet is high in fat, low in carbohydrates and has just the right amount of protein. According to the definition on Wikipedia:

‘The diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that in medicine is used primarily to treat difficult-to-control (refractory) epilepsy in children. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates.’

The key to the paragraph above are the words:
