Keto 101

The ketogenic diet is a low-carb, high-fat and moderate-protein diet that alters the body’s metabolism to use fat as the preferred fuel, rather than sugars. When your body enters a fat-burning zone it creates ketones for energy, leading to weight loss and the following benefits:

1. Fat burning 

2. Metabolism support

3. Sustained energy

4. Muscle recovery

5. Improved cognitive function and focus
