Summary

Diet plan that works by restricting carbohydrates drastically, causing the body to go into a state of ketosis, which means a body's energy is derived from ketones, the fuel created by the breakdown of fat stores. One feels less hungry in ketosis; however, it may cause unpleasant effects, such as unusual breath odor and constipation. The body changes from a carbohydrate-burning engine into a fat-burning engine and results in weight loss.
