Following the plan can help some people shape up, according to fitness expert Daniel Herman.

He said: "A keto or ketogenic diet is a very low-carb diet (not no carb), which turns the body into a fat-burning machine.

"It has many proven benefits for weight loss, health and performance, as millions of people have experienced already."

The diet is thought to help the body enter into the fat-burning state called ketosis.

This can boost the metabolism and speed up weight loss results, Daniel explained.

He continued: "The 'keto' in a ketogenic diet comes from the fact that it makes the body produce small fuel molecules called 'ketones'.

"This is an alternative fuel for the body, used when blood sugar (glucose) is in short supply.

"On a ketogenic diet, your entire body switches its fuel supply to run almost entirely on fat.
