The keto diet is a high fat, moderate protein, low carbohydrate diet that forces the body to burn fat, a state known as “ketosis”. Staying in ketosis is a very personal thing with a number of variables such as an individual’s physique and activity levels. The only way to know for sure if you’re in ketosis (and to what degree) is to measure ketone bodies.
Whether you measure ketones or not, the generally accepted level of carbohydrate intake for keto dieters is around 30g of available carbs per day.
