Ketosis is a miraculous Metabolic state when your body uses Ketones/Fat for Fuel instead of Glucose
As we know Keto is a high fat, moderate protein and low Carb Diet

The process of Keto Adaptation takes about 2-3 weeks during that time your body starts to use the body as Fuel
Hence making you a fat-burning machine

However, what makes your Diet Keto-genic isn’t the High amount of fat
Fat is just a source of energy
Ketosis comes from restricting your carbs, which keeps your blood sugar low and allows your liver to start producing ketones

Glucose and Ketones are opposite to each other and can’t co-exist very well

In A Keto-genic Lifestyle
•60% Energy From Fats
•30% Energy From Protein
•10% Energy From Carbohydrates
