Thanks to celebrity weight-loss endorsements, niche products, and a slew of keto diet tomes and cookbooks, it’s all the rage again. That’s short for “ketogenic,” which describes a very-low-carb/high-fat diet that shifts a person’s body into a state of “ketosis,” or ketone-burning. (Ketones are chemicals produced by your liver after breaking down fat that may help suppress appetite.) Sounds a little sci-fi, but ketosis is really just an alternate way that your body burns the food you eat for energy.
