details, which Pat may well already be aware are that the keto diet is very low carb. Basically, it exchanges carbs for fat and often has a pretty high protein content as well. The majority of the fat and protein typically come from animal sources: meat, eggs and dairy (butter and cheese). Several months ago, I attended an 11-part health lecture series by a woman who follows and recommends a modified keto diet in which the animal fats are replaced by plant-based fats such as olive and coconut oil (I know, controversial) and the animal proteins are replaced by plant-based legumes, nuts and seeds. As Cathy noted, legumes are not usually included on a keto diet; but, the speaker believed and explained the physiological reasons why this is a very healthy version of a keto diet.
