Ketogenic Rat

Sometimes a picture says it all. Two rats were fed the same calories. The rat ¬†pictured on the left was fed the standard low fat/ high carb Western diet and the rat pictured on the right was fed a high fat/low carb ketogenic diet. Notice the visceral fat covering the somewhat sickly-looking organs of the WD rat, and the lack of fat around pristine organs in the KD rat? See how awesome the liver of the Ketogenic Diet rat looks compared to the Western Diet rat. Eating keto and switching the body to fat burning cleans out the fat in a fatty liver … and in other organs. The process is made even quicker if you combine intermittent fasting.
