What Is the Keto Diet?
The ketogenic diet, or “keto” for short, is a low-carb, high-fat eating plan that has been shown to help people lose weight, improve their health, and even reduce the risk of certain diseases. It works by forcing the body to burn fat for fuel instead of carbs. This means that you’ll be eating a lot of fat, moderate amounts of protein, and very few carbs.
