The Keto Diet Explained (And Who Does Best On A Ketogenic Diet?)
The keto diet explained is one of a series of posts about eating right for YOUR specific body type.
In this post, we’ll explain ketosis, the keto diet and the “ketogenic approach” (a less-rigid, more lifestyle-focused way to apply the principles of ketosis) – and, you might also want to read my rant, here about the use of the word DIET.
We’ll also explain who may (or may not) benefit from being in ketosis (using either of these two approaches).
First – some definitions.
Ketones and ketosis
When your blood sugar levels are low, available fuel is low. In response, your liver produces small molecules of fuel (ketones) from fat, to provide the fuel your body needs to function.
When you are using ketones for fuel, your body is said to be in a state of ketosis.
