When you put your body in a state of Ketosis you are burning fat to fuel your body, rather than carbohydrates. 

With this diet, certain foods need to either be limited or cut out completely. Foods like grains or rice, candy, and sugary drinks should be eliminated while foods like potatoes and fruit should be cut down on. The Keto diet is proven to be good for losing weight and cutting down fat from the body, but also should be used in moderation. The good thing is that you still can drink and incorporate coffee in your diet!
