The Keto diet, also called the ketogenic diet, is a high fat, low carbohydrate diet. The basic premise is to consume a low number of carb grams and a higher level of protein and fats. When you replace your carb intake with fat, you put your body into ketosis.

Keto works to help you lose weight and fat quickly, but it’s difficult to maintain. Plus, there are some people that should not use this diet.

The Paleo diet takes its name from the prehistoric Paleolithic Era. The idea is that we should eat like our early ancestors- the hunters and gatherers.
