What Is the Keto Diet? Experts Weigh In... and Celebs Sound Off

Don't come for Al Roker's diet of choice. The Today Show personality has proven before that he can get feisty toward naysayers of the ketogenic diet, which he's been following since September. (Ask Roker about his favorite keto bread recipe!)
