What Is Keto/Ketosis

What Is Keto?

The Ketogentic Diet consists of eating high-fat, moderate protein, and low-carbohydrates. By reducing carbs/sugar, eating more good fats,the body will in turn enter into a state of ketosis where the body begins to burns fats/ketones for fuel/energy instead of glucose/carbs/sugars.

What Is Ketosis?

Ketosis is a metabolic state in which some of the body’s energy supply comes from ketone bodies in the blood, in contrast to a state of glycolysis in which blood glucose (sugar) provides most of the energy.- Wikipedia

What are Ketones?

Ketones are substances that are made when the body breaks down fat for energy. Normally, your body gets the energy it needs from carbohydrate in your diet. But stored fat is broken down and ketones are made if your diet does not contain enough carbohydrate to supply the body with sugar (glucose) for energy or if your body can’t use blood sugar (glucose) properly. –WebMD
