What is Keto?
Keto is shorthand for the word ketogenic in ketogenic diet. While keto really refers to burning fat for fuel, it is most popularly used in reference to the keto diet (see below for more information). Some people feel better on a keto, low carb diet, or a moderately low carb diet. The amount of carbohydrates you consume will vary depending on your insulin tolerance and activity level.
Here are the average numbers of carbohydrates to consume for each diet type (depending on which resource you reference):
Keto diet – Under 25g net carbs per day
Low carb diet – 25g - 50g net carbs per day
Moderate low carb diet – 50g - 100g net carbs per day
It usually takes 3 days for your body to enter ketosis, but it can vary by person. Not everyone counts net carbs – some people count all carbs. Just a note that the keto diet isn’t right for everyone. Please follow a lifestyle that works best for you.
