What is a keto diet?
 
A keto diet is well known for being a low carb diet, where the body produces ketones in the liver to be used as energy. It’s referred to as many different names – ketogenic diet, low carb diet, low carb high fat (LCHF), etc.
 
When you eat something high in carbs, your body will metabolize glucose and secrete insulin.
  • Glucose is the easiest molecule for your body to convert and use as energy so that it will be chosen over any other energy source.
  • Insulin is secreted by the pancreas to help glucose in the blood enter cells, providing them with energy to function.
 
 
Since the glucose is being used as a primary energy, your fats are not needed and are therefore stored. Typically on a normal, higher carbohydrate diet, the body will use glucose as the main form of energy. By lowering the intake of carbs, the body is induced into a state known as ketosis.
 
Ketosis is a natural process the body initiates to help us survive when carbohydrate intake is low. During this state, we produce ketones, which are produced from the breakdown of fats in the liver.
 
The end goal of a properly maintained keto diet is to force your body into this metabolic state. This is not achieved via through “starvation” of calories but through “starvation” of carbohydrates.
 
Our bodies are incredibly adaptive to what you put into it – when you overload it with fats and take away carbohydrates, it will begin to burn ketones as the primary energy source. Maintaining a state of ketosis has been associated with weight loss, which may have several health benefits.
