The keto diet is now the most popular weight-loss diet across the globe.
On the keto diet, you normally have to exclude grains, dairy, legumes, soy, most fruits and starchy vegetables.
You eat very few carbohydrate, most of which come from non-starchy vegetables, nuts and seeds.
The idea is to force your body into a state of ketosis.
This is where your body doesn’t have enough carbs for your cells to use for energy.
Ketosis happens within two to seven days of following the keto diet.
This is the state your body enters when it doesn’t have enough carbs for your cells to use for energy.
Your body starts making ketones, and your body uses these compounds in place of those carbs.
Simply put, body starts burning fat for energy instead of carbohydrates.
