The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, moderate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet. Normally, your body runs on glucose (from carbohydrates) for fuel, but when on the keto diet, you’re body enters the metabolic state of ketosis which allows you to burn ketones (from fat) for energy. The ratio of macronutrients (macros) you consume is an important factor to keep in mind because keto is not just another low-carb diet, it is also a higher-fat diet.
