The ketogenic, or keto, diet is an eating plan that is based on a very high-fat, moderate protein and very low-carbohydrate intake. There are variations of the diet, but if you are following the standard keto diet, 75 percent of your calories will come from fat, 20 percent from protein and only 5 percent from carbs. Most keto diet experts recommend keeping your carbohydrates between 20g and 50g a day.
