The keto diet is all about high-fat, low-carb consumption.

There’s nothing black and white about the keto diet. Yes, it will likely make you lose weight quickly. And yes, Halle Berry is an avid follower which automatically ups its coolness factor by about 100.

Keto is all about high-fat, low-carb consumption, which means you’ll be eating lots of fish, meat, eggs, and dairy. Foods like potatoes, pasta, and fruits are pretty much out of the question. The logic is that your body won’t be able to draw from carbohydrates, so it will enter into a state of ketosis. That means you’ll start burning fat for energy, resulting in quick weight loss.
