According to foreign scientists, the ketogenic diet (keto diet) reduces the risk of infection with the new type of coronavirus, and if the infection does occur, it can protect against its severe form.

This is a low carb, high fat, medium protein diet.

According to scientists, the small amount of carbohydrates stabilizes blood sugar levels (and this stops inflammation), reduces the percentage of fat and cholesterol in the body. This type of nutrition promotes the proliferation of special cells that have immunomodulatory activity.

On a keto diet, fat can be obtained from oils and lard, meat and fish, cheese, milk, eggs, avocados and nuts. Almost all of these foods also contain an adequate daily intake of protein.

Carbohydrates can only be taken from vegetables, fruits, and cereals, pasta, potatoes are prohibited. Sweets and alcoholic beverages are strictly prohibited.

According to doctor and TV presenter Yevgeny Komarovsky, only strong immunity can protect against coronavirus, so it is now more important than ever to lead the he althiest possible lifestyle.
