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, your diet lacks 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.
The Benefits of a Ketogenic Diet
This is why some expert and studies, like the one published in theNational Library for Medicine, speak to the benefits of a ketogenic diet. If your metabolism has already converted to a ketogenic method, your body will be more adept at burning existing fat stores.

A metabolic state when your body uses fat as the primary fuel source rather than carbohydrates. There are raised levels of ketone bodies in the blood.
