The Ketogenic Diet (often termed keto) is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares many similarities with Atkins and other low-carb diets. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat and targeting your ideal protein intake. The reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.

This class will focus on cooking a few recipes that will enable you to eat delicious foods that meet the macro requirements for Keto. Some tips and planning ideas will be discussed.
