KETO is a diet that is characterized by extremely low carbs (7%), extremely high fat (73%) and below-average protein (20%). It is designed to be very effective at producing fast weight loss for the short term on an average daily caloric intake of around 1300 kcal.
KETO is an abbreviation for ketogenic (i.e. ketone generating), which is a diet that emphasizes quick weight loss by slashing the carbs you consume and, instead, filling up on fats, which causes the body to produce ketones (natural by-product of fat burning) helping you to enter a state of ketosis, where your fat-burning system now relies mainly on fat – instead of sugar (carbs) for energy.
