I love learning. I learn something new every day and today I’ve learned about the foods you can eat on a Keto diet. I decided to focus on the actual foods you can eat on a keto diet because I was beginning to get a little fed up with my current limited options. These foods taste great and will most certainly fill you up on the Keto diet. If you’re not sure of what a Keto diet is, then head over to my Beginners Guide to a Keto diet post.
Check them out and let me know what you think of them below.
Basics of the Keto Plan
When you are trying to lose weight, tone up or simply boost your confidence, then you are likely to be willing to try a variety of different diets and meal plans to help you along your way. One of the popular meal plans at the moment is the keto meal plan.
The keto meal plan is essentially a low-carb, high-fat diet. When following this particular diet you should aim for foods that are low in carbs but that are high in fats.
So, much like any meal or diet plan, the burning question is, what foods can you eat on the keto diet?
Fish and Seafood
If you want to indulge in some keto-friendly meat then salmon, fish and some shellfish too. Not only is fish a great carb free food to have in your diet plan, but it is also packed full of other great vitamins and minerals too.
Low carb vegetables
The majority of vegetables contain very few carbs, however, there are some like potatoes that are high in carbs and therefore should be limited as part of a keto diet. The trick with a keto meal plan is to choose non-starchy vegetables and replace the starchy choices with them. You could use cauliflower as a mash or rice alternative and zucchini and butternut squash are great to replace spaghetti.
One great piece of news for those following a keto meal plan is that cheese is definitely on the menu. Cheese is usually low in carbs and high in fat. Which means that they work perfectly for keto diet followers. This is particularly true for cheddar cheese which is able to provide 1 gram of carbs per 28g serving! Why not combine them with the zucchini spaghetti that you will have learnt all about in the previous point?
It doesn’t seem to matter which diet or eating plan you follow, avocados are always a go to food on the list. This is because avocados are pretty impressive little vegetables. Whilst they contain about 9g of carbs per 100g of avocado, around 7g of this is actually fibre, which is a big thumbs up. Not only this, but avocados are also packed full of vitamins and minerals, such as potassium, which is something we all could do with getting more of in our diets.
Meat and poultry
It simply wouldn’t be a keto diet plan without having meat on the list. Fresh meat and poultry does not contain any form of carbs and are a source of high-quality protein, which means that they are definitely something that we should all be chowing down on more often.
Now you know more about what you can eat on a keto diet, you can start to think about whether or not it is going to work out right for you. If you do try it, then we are sure that by following it property and limiting your carb intake to between 20 and 50 grams per day, that you will soon start to see weight loss as well as you feeling overall healthier.
