What is Keto lifestyle?!
Keto is short for ketogenic. Therefore a keto lifestyle is someone who adheres to a ketogenic diet and undergoes long-term ketosis.
When under ketosis the liver produces ketones which are used in the body as an energy source. These ketones are produced as a result of the breakdown of fats inside the liver. Ketosis occurs when a high portion of a diet stems from fat sources.

You’re probably asking how do I live a keto life-style?! Well its simple – make sure your daily food intake should comprise at least 70% fats, 25% proteins and 5% carbohydrates.
It can be challenging to change daily eating habits and beliefs. The huge benefits of a keto lifestyle only come after months of sustaining these eating habits. That’s why KetoWorld stocks a selection of food items and gear to not help you transition into this way of life – but to sustain it over a long period.
