If you’re looking for a diet to help you lose weight, burn fat, improve your
health, there is a perfect diet called keto.
Keto short for ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carb meal plan that drives the
body into ketosis. It’s a natural metabolic state where the body uses fat as its
primary source of fuel instead of glucose.
Ketosis is the main purpose of the ketogenic diet.
In ketosis, your body becomes incredibly effective at burning fat.
And the more stored fat is used as a fuel, more fat and weight you’ll lose.
It may sound unconventional to eat a high-fat diet to burn fat and lose

60-75% of your calories from fat.
15-30% of your calories from protein.
5-10% of your calories from carbs.

beneficial for health.
It has so far been linked to weight loss, reversing type 2 diabetes, and
managing blood sugar levels.

plan can make things easier.
