Q: Is Atkins 100 a ketogenic Diet?

Most individuals can maintain a fat burning metabolism when carbs are at the 50 gram level or less. Ketones are simply the by-product of fat burning. The body will switch to its back up fuel system of fat burning when carbs are low enough. A healthy active young athlete may be able to maintain fat burning at the 100 level, but most overweight individuals will need to be at the 50g level.
