What is Keto?
Simply put, if you’re “on keto” or “going ketogenic,” it refers to how your body changes from burning carbohydrates as its preferred fuel source to prioritizing fat burning. Humans are fueled by burning glucose first and foremost, and glucose comes primarily from dietary carbohydrates. When you’re on a ketogenic diet, the foods you eat lack the amount of carbohydrates required to produce enough glucose for all its tissues, so it looks for the next best fuel type. That’s fat. And that’s where ketones and ketosis come into play.
