Keto diet is a health fad that refuses to die. The diet, which is a quick and reliable way to lose weight, has been a rage among many celebrities, including comedian Tanmay Bhat and American TV star Kim Kardashian. Union Minister Smriti Irani appears to be the latest to join the keto bandwagon. Or so it would seem.
The Instagram-savvy politician posted a picture on her account of a bowl of chicken, with the caption ‘Keto chicken’. While the emoticons accompanying the photo didn’t suggest she was too happy with the food, the photo she posted right after was of a box of donuts with the caption ‘sugary end to the day’.
For the uninitiated, you can’t have sugar if you’re on keto diet.
So, Irani is either on the keto diet, with the keto chicken being her current best friend and the donuts are a cheat dish. Or she’s not on the diet and the chicken was just a one-off meal. Guess only the Union minister knows for sure.
The keto diet is a high-fat and low-carb diet which relies on breaking down fat for energy instead of carbohydrates. High on fat, moderate protein and near-zero carbs, it is known to achieve wonders when it comes to weight loss.
Unlike other diets, keto encourages the intake of cheese, along with cream, butter and ghee. And it’s all about the protein-rich meats
