Like every year I have made the decision to get healthy, but after a month or so I give up and go back to my old ways.
This year I have started a new journey to change my lifestyle habits. I'm trying the Keto lifestyle.

So what is Keto?
"The keto diet changes the way your body converts food into energy. Eating a lot of fat and very few carbs puts you in ketosis, a metabolic state where your body burns fat instead of carbs for fuel. When your body is unable to get glucose from carbs, your liver converts fatty acids from your diet into ketones, an alternative source of energy. Burning ketones in place of glucose reduces inflammation and spurs weight loss." (taken from Keto Diet for beginners)
