Abstract:

Because fat has a higher caloric content than carbohydrates, it is expected that a high-fat diet will result in greater calorie intake. However, the review concentrates on the benefits and adverse effects on the body, as well as explaining the metabolic pathways that occur in people and some animals following a ketogenic diet.
