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

1- Keto:

Refers to your body being put into a state of ketosis: when your body is very low on carbs — it begins to burn fat for fuel

Fat begins to be your primary source of energy

Benefits – possible weight loss + some say when they are in ketosis, they can have higher energy + possible brain boosting

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
