The human body can adapt to using ketones, instead of carbs for fuel.
Ketosis is like giving your body premium fuel like you would for a fine sports car.
Typically we feed our body's simple carbs from breads and sugars for the immediate satisfaction of glucose. While it may seem unnatural at first to make the switch, the human body can adapt to using ketones, instead of carbs for fuel when carbohydrates are not available.
When you starve the body of carbohydrates and only have fat available, then your liver uses fat as an alternative fuel. The liver then turns fatty acids into ketones. Your brain and body utilize these ketones for clean, and actually more effective energy that keeps you full – without slowing you down.
