What Is the Keto Diet?

Following the keto (or ketogenic) diet means that you consume most of your calories from foods that are high in fat rather than carbohydrates, per the Johns Hopkins Medicine Health Library.

Typically, your body uses carbohydrates to make glucose, which you use as energy throughout the day. Therefore, when you sacrifice carbohydrates, your body cannot make any glucose. Instead, it breaks down fat cells to use as energy, which helps you lose weight.

Healthy, high-fat foods are the staples of keto diets—including eggs, fish, avocadoes, nuts, and vegetable oils. Around 70% to 90% of your calories will come from foods like those if you're following the keto diet.

It can be difficult to track how many calories you are consuming from high-fat foods. Luckily, there are some apps that can help.
