The keto diet is a very strict low carbohydrate diet and high fat diet. There are a few versions of the keto diet but the standard being 70-80% fat 10-20% protein 5-10% carb. This typically being 50g of carbohydrates or less per day.
The purpose of this diet is for your body to burn fat more efficiently by producing ketones instead of glucose. This is achieved when your body doesn’t have enough carbohydrates to turn into glucose. Therefore your liver turns fat into ketones as another source of energy.
It is said this diet may help certain medical conditions and help with weight loss. Here is a link to the Healthlines website where you can read more information about this.
