What is Keto diet
So what is the keto diet? What does keto even mean and how is it done? First of all What does the word “keto” mean? Basically the body can run on two different fuels. One is sugar from carbohydrates in the food we eat, and the other is using fat for fuel.The keto diet is a very low-carb diet.So low in carbs that the body has to switch to mainly using fat for fuel.When the body is out of sugar, fat is converted in the liver into energy molecules called ketones, and the diet that results in this is called ketogenic, meaning it produces ketones. And that’s why the diet is called the keto diet.
Being fueled mostly by fat, a state called “ketosis”, it has many benefits including that you become a fat-burning machine.
