What is the keto diet?

The keto diet is very similar to the Atkins Diet—it’s low in carbs and high in healthy fat. By replacing carbs with fat, your body is put into a metabolic state called ketosis. In this state, your body becomes extremely efficient at burning fat for energy. This helps people lose weight, but it can also help people lower their blood sugar and insulin levels.
