Keto is the short form of ketogenic, which refers to a low-carb and high-fat diet.

It has a myriad of benefits and health advantages if used properly, and many people are continuing to appreciate the food.

One of the best-known benefits of the diet is weight loss as your body starts to burn fat for fuel.

The ketogenic diet bares some similarity to the Atkins and low-carb diets since, in all of them, there is little to no carbohydrate intake.

In such diets, the consumption of carbohydrates is switched to fats which causes your body to go into a metabolic state known as ketosis.

At this metabolic stage, you burn fats easily for energy, and the body also turns fats into ketones, useful for the supply of energy within the brain.

Salads: A Great Option On Keto

Salads are one of the easiest low-carb options when you’re on a ketogenic diet.

They’re easy-to-make, convenient to carry and don’t need to be heated so they’re always ready to eat.
