Pronounced like the word β€œkey” and the word β€œtoe” β€” Kee-tō

1.Shorthand for ketosis & often used as a prefix when used in this sense. (Ex. β€œKeto-Flu) β€” a state where the body stops using glucose as it’s primary energy source. Ketones, stored fat, & some amino acids become the primary sources.

2. Shorthand forketogenic diet β€” A medical diet prescribed to either reduce seizures in epileptics or reduce spikes in diabetics. The goal of keto is to achieve a sustained state of ketosis. Low calorie keto is often utilized by slimmers & lifters to cut a large percentage of body fat quickly, so it sometimes is thought as a fad-diet or even a crash-diet.
When used to cut fat there are 5 basic guidelines.
1. Most carbs eaten should be low netcarb, complex carbs & free of added sugar.
2.Eat more cal from fat than protein & more from protein than carbs. Protein can be broken down into glucose so eating too much threatens ketosis.

3.Restricting cal to 5% from carbs or less is most ideal. 10% is considered good for an active athlete who burns through glucose quickly.
4. Start out eating a highfat (65%-70%) & moderate protein diet (25%-20%).

5.Gradually work toward a very highfat (75%-85%) & low/moderate protein (20%-10%)β€”no less than 10% for an extended period. Too little can cause a starvation response where the body burns muscle protein for energy instead of using stored fat & the amino acids in dietary protein.

Keto Kevin: I am Keto-Kevin the Ketomite from Ketofalls, CA but I now live in Ketoville USA. I used to be an obese, diabetic having a seizure a day. But then I adopted a Kaleo diet-Ketogenic diet and the constant Ketosis has made me a healthy & convulsion-free bodybuilder with 8% body fat. My likes are working out, ketofucking my girlfriend ketorria, water, avocados, and steak. My dislikes are flour, ketards, keto flu, keto crotch, the keto farts, keto snobs, people claim keto buyer follow the cheato diet, the ketotic shits, ketomites who do dirty keto or lazy keto, and keto cops.
