What is the keto diet?
The ketogenic diet is made up of a large amount of fat and a fair share of protein, with little to no carbohydrates. This means you get to eat lots of meat like steak, chicken & bacon. You can also add olive oil to your meals which adds plenty of flavour, you won’t eat like this with other diet’s!
