Keto, Paleo, Whole 30, Intermittent Fasting, and Kintsugi Wellness:

Keep Carbs Low
Eat more Fat
Overdoing protein is bad
Ketones: refer to chemicals produced in the liver
Your body makes ketones when your body does not have proper insulin to turn sugar//glucose into energy.
Thus your body will then use fat instead.
The body then turns your fat into ketones— a type of acid, and sends them into your bloodstream. Your body’s tissues and muscles use them to fuel the body
