The keto diet is an ultra-low-carb diet. This means you’ll be eating significantly fewer carbohydrates than the average person, even fewer than a person following a classic low-carb diet. Exactly how many carbs you should aim to eat depends on your specific goals, as well as your age, gender, and level of activity, says Salter. Ketogenic diets tend to limit carbohydrate intake to just 20 to 30 net grams per day. On a standard ketogenic diet, fats typically make up 70 to 80 percent of total daily calories, protein about 15 to 20 percent, and carbs just around 5 percent.
