The ketogenic (or keto) diet is a high-fat, low-carb diet that can change the way your body fuels itself. Instead of running on easy-to-access carbohydrates, your body turns to its fat stores and breaks them down into usable energy. For some people, switching to the keto diet has resulted in weight loss, more energy throughout the day and fewer cravings in-between meals.

Keto-approved foods are high in fats, moderate in protein and very low in carbohydrates. Foods like salmon, lean meats, full-fat dairy and low-carb veggies like kale, spinach and broccoli are all excellent choices. Although the exact numbers vary based on your height, age and weight, keto dieters should generally aim to get about 5 percent of their calories from carbs, 20 percent from protein and 75 percent from fats.
