KetoGENIUS is a ketogenic diet, which focuses on high protein, high fat, and low carbs.
WHAT IS A KETONE?
Glucose is what your body uses for energy, but when glucose runs out (or more appropriately runs in short supply) then it uses fats. As fats burn they produce ketones. Glucose (a type of sugar) is the body's main energy source.
Your body can use ketones for a different source of energy - your brain can actually run on ketones as well! (Ketones is another way of saying, let your body run off fat instead of carbs!)
So how do you get your body to run on ketones?
Fasting helps because your body burns through the glucose first, and then to the fat. That is why so many people throughout history have recommended fasting.
NOTE: Please consult your doctor before doing any diet whatsoever! Especially if you have any cardiovascular issues, diabetes, or are pregnant. Again, please read our disclaimer at the bottom of this page, or click here.

BONUS: TIME RESTRICTED DIETING
There has been a lot of research regarding eating within certain time parameters. A good rule is to try to follow this: If you first meal of the day is at 8am, the last bit of food you eat should be consumed by 8pm. Then you give your body 12 hours of time to digest the food. As Medical News Today wrote:
Research has shown that time-restricted eating can work well alongside efforts to build muscle.
One study investigated time-restricted eating in young men who followed a set resistance training program for 8 weeks. The men restricted their eating window to 4 hours on the 4 non-workout days each week.
The authors concluded that participants who followed the time-restricted eating plan reduced their calorie intake without losing strength. However, time-restricted eating did not result in reductions in body weight or body fat compared to a standard diet.
Another study placed resistance-trained men into either a time-restricted eating group or a normal diet group. Those in the time-restricted eating group ate 100 percent of their calorie needs during an 8-hour window each day for 8 weeks. The time-restricted eating led to a decrease in body fat with no reduction in muscle mass.
