Keto is a process where your body is able to burn stored energy in the form of body fat and ketones, and you are no longer dependent on your regular high-carbohydrate meals to give you energy and brain support.
Being in ketosis means burning ketones for energy and pursuing a fat and keto-adapted state.
What Is Ketosis?
Ketosis is the presence of ketones. It’s not harmful. You can be in ketosis if you’re on a low-carbohydrate diet. You can also be in ketosis by consuming too much alcohol, which is not recommended.
