14-Day Keto Meal Plan: Day 1
A keto or ketogenic diet is very low on carbs and high on fat, which brings your body in a metabolic state of ketosis. This means that your body is running mostly on fat, because it does not have enough carbs to burn for energy. It is extremely effective when it comes to weight loss, consisting of less than 20 grams of net carbs per day.
