Is Keto TOO Much for You? Do This Instead [Lower-Carb/Better-Carb]

A keto diet is a very low carb diet. The purpose of a keto diet is to encourage your body to produce ketones, which are breakdown products of fat metabolism. Ketones can be measured, and if your body is producing them, you are burning fat.

In other words, a keto diet is an effective fat-loss diet. But what if it is too extreme for you? Restricting your carb intake to around 20 or 30 grams per day cuts out a lot of favorite foods and limits fruit and other plant-based foods.

So what do you do if keto feels out of reach? You can get fat loss results by simply reducing your carb intake and making better carb choices. This video explains the difference and how you can enhance this less extreme strategy to make fast, healthy progress.
