What is the Keto Diet?
The Keto diet is an extremely low carb, high-fat diet. It is similar to the various low carb diets as well as the Atkins diet.
In this diet, you reduce your carbohydrate intake and replace it with fat. When you reduce your carbs this drastically, it puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.
During ketosis, your body becomes efficient at burning fat. Because you are not using carbs for energy, your body must use fat as energy. Therefore, your fat is turned into ketones in the liver so that it can supply energy to the brain.
Because keto diets focus on low carbs and high fat, drinking alcoholic beverages on the diet can be tricky. This is because many mixers put into alcoholic drinks contain sugar and other carbs. Only pure alcohols are safe to drink on the Keto diet.
