Do our bodies need carbs? Doesn't our brain need glucose?

Most cells in the body can use either glucose or ketones. A very small amount of glucose is needed, but the body can make this itself using a process called gluconeogenesis that occurs in the liver (and occasionally in the kidneys) which turns protein into glucose. Your body takes some time to get efficient with the metabolic processes needed to support the keto diet, but after a little time the body will be able to meet your energy needs and produce the small amounts of glucose needed.
