A ketogenic diet is high-fat, low-carb, which forces the body to use up its store of glycogen to reach a state of ketosis in which it burns fat. January 5 has been designated National Keto Day, which is the perfect day to celebrate with Keto Zuppa Toscana Soup.
Important: Consult your doctor before changing your diet.
