A keto meal plan aims to shift your body to utilize only fat as a source of energy. This process releases ketones, which the body then uses as fuel, as opposed to carbohydrates and protein. Many people benefit from this as it helps reduce carbohydrate cravings, stabilize blood sugar levels, reduce body fat, and stabilize circulating fats in the body. It can also reduce the reliance on carbohydrates during endurance events. It can benefit some health conditions such as type 2 diabetes. If you suffer from any, please provide a letter from your doctor permitting you to undertake our plan.
