What is ketosis?

Change your fuel.
Power your life.

Ketosis means using fat as your fuel, instead of carbs – which is actually how we’re designed! This includes the fat you consume, and the fat you store. In fact, we work better without needing to burn carbs at all, because our body has to transform carbs to fat before it can use that energy. Cutting carbs means your body can burn fat how it wants to: first, and faster. Below are just some of the advantages of ditching the carbs and instead eating foods enriched with high quality fats as your body’s more efficient fuel source.
