Keto diet:
  •  The keto diet system is based on consuming high levels of fat and protein (75% fat and 25% protein) and very few starches from non-major sources that do not exceed 5% of a person’s daily consumption, which is estimated at 50 grams per day.
  • Usually the body relies on calories from carbohydrates that come from sugar as a main source of energy,” and this method is preferred because it provides the body with energy quickly”
  •  What happens in the keto diet is that the body does not eat any source of carbohydrates, which lowers the levels of the hormone insulin in the blood.
  • This process make the body search for another source of energy, so it begins to break down fats and amino acids inside the liver to produce a new type of energy, 
  • (the ketone bodies)
  •   After it enters the body in a phase called ketosis, or ketoses, thus the main source of energy becomes fat instead of carbohydrates.
