Keto comes from the word Ketosis.
Keto is a very low-carb, high fat, moderate protein diet that trains your body to burn fat for fuel instead of glucose (carbs - bread, pasta, sugar, fruit, these all turn into sugar/glucose in our body).
You drastically reduce your carbohydrate intake and replace it with fat. Reducing carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.
In ketosis, your body becomes incredibly efficient at burning fat for energy. It also turns fat into ketones in the liver, which can supply energy for the brain lifting the brain fog, reducing inflammation and reducing weight.
Protein and fat are the priorities, where carbohydrate intake should be minimized.
The keto diet, is not new, it's quite 'old'. Our ancestors ate this way.
It's a supercharged version of the old Low Carb / Atkins / Paleo diet.
Keto is a long term way of life, not just for weight loss, but for energy, lowering inflammation and reducing your cravings for sugar.
