What is the Keto Diet?

So what is the keto diet anyway? The keto diet is a low carb way of eating that focuses on fats and proteins.

It’s very low-carb, lower even than an Atkins diet. But it focuses on high-fat foods and a big reduction in carbohydrates.

This fat loading puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis (aka, keto).

And when this happens: watch out! Your body becomes an effective engine for using fat as fuel, which in turn helps you lose weight.
