The KETO Diet is all about pushing our body into a state of Ketosis which is a normal metabolic process. When your body doesn’t have enough carbohydrates from food for your cells to burn for energy, your body burns fat instead to keep working. My husband and I have been living this KETO life for a while now and we both are feeling fantastic.
