Carbs consumed and ketosis

Generally, if someone wants to start doing a keto diet to burn more solid instead of carbs, then it is recommended to reduce daily carb intake to less than 50 g.

1g of carbs= 4 calories

So if a person has a basal metabolic frequency of say 1600 calories, why would they need to eat extremely limited carbs in order to reach ketosis? Even if you gobble 200 g of carbs wouldn’t that exclusively be 800 calories and your organization would burn through that and still need to burn a good amount of fatty to assistance power needs?

I feel like there is a key article of information I’m missing.
