in Plain English

There’s all sorts of confusing information out there.

What is Keto?

In a nutshell, keto, or ketogenic, is a style of eating that uses weight-based ratios to determine what is eaten in a given meal.  Ratios are calculated as total weight of fat vs. total weight of carbohydrates plus protein.
