WHAT IS THE KETOGENIC DIET?

The ketogenic diet (often calledketo) is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares similarities to paleo, Whole30, and Atkins.It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat.When your body switches to burning fatfor its primary fuel source, that’s when you hit ketosis.

While on the Keto diet you’re supposed to get at least 70 percent of your calories from fat, 15 to 25 percent from protein, and 10 percent from carbohydrates. You’re supposed to avoid all grains, legumes, root vegetables, fruit, (except berries) and sugar.
