Ketosis is a naturally occurring metabolic process in which the body does NOT have enough glucose (blood sugar) to use for energy; resulting in the burning of stored fat; in-turn releasing fatty-acids called ketones. Simply put, ketosis is the most optimal and efficient state for your body to burn stored fat.
Keto is a low-carb, high-fat diet that lowers blood sugar and insulin levels; shifting the body’s metabolism away from carbs and towards fat and ketones. As we know, this metabolic state is called ketosis. Shifting the body’s metabolism in this fashion has many benefits.
