As for losing weight, I've tried everything at this stage: cabbage soup diet, grapefruit diet, master cleanser (Beyoncé did me), Atkins, counting points, juice and meal delivery services. You call him, I tried him. Do not even start getting infomercials for weight loss.

Eight months ago, I gave birth to my second child, Viviana. With my Viviana came an extra 13 pounds, four pairs of slit pants and a couple of zippers. I gave myself seven months after giving birth for which I did not even think about dieting. I am not trying to recover my body. I grew up and gave birth to two human beings, it's amazing and I do not want to erase it.

What I want to "come back" is my confidence in myself and my ability to wear my pants without tearing them.

So here I am in known territory, browsing the Internet for a New diet to try. It is clear that the ketogenic diet is doing a while (even Al Roker is a big keto fan.) I thought I would give him a shot for 30 days to see what was going on.

The buzz

The ketogenic or ketogenic diet is a diet high in fat, moderate in protein and low in carbohydrates … I speak very little of carbohydrates!

According to nutritionist Keri Glassman, based in New York, only 5% of calories from carbohydrates, 20% of protein and 75% of fat. To put this in perspective, with a 2,000-calorie diet, this only represents 25 grams of carbs (which I usually eat at 6 am thanks to my coffee cream).

How can a diet so rich in fat actually work? In reality, the explanation is logical: normally, our body uses glucose (carbohydrates) as fuel. If you exhaust your body of carbohydrates, it will turn into fat for its source of energy. This metabolic state is called ketosis and is supposed to turn you into a machine to burn fat! Getting there does not happen overnight, it can take a few days to a few weeks.
