A ketogenic metabolism is one where your body burns predominantly fat for energy, and your liver generates sufficient glucose and ketone bodies to fuel your brain. Ketone bodies not only provide energy but they have many therapeutic and signaling properties. Ketogenic Forums is a place where we discuss the many facets of this ancient and beneficial metabolic state. "Keto" isn't a diet. It's a lifestyle. One does not "go keto" for a short period of time to lose a little weight. Changing your primary fuel from glucose to fat has so many health benefits: normalization of weight, reversal of type 2 diabetes, less inflammation, better arterial and heart health, mental acuity, retreat of brain diseases like Alzheimer's and dementia, and even reduction in some types of tumors.
