“What can I eat with the keto diet ?!”
When you almost eliminate an entire macronutrient (in the case of keto, these are carbohydrates), achieving a proper nutritional balance becomes a little more difficult.
People interested in trying keto often ask themselves:
- Can I eat vegetables? If so, which ones?
- It is fruit completely out of bounds?
- What about foods that have a small amount of carbohydrates, such as cheese?
- Is bacon a protein or a fat?
- Is butter healthy?
That’s why we created this handy keto food list.
Warning: You may notice that this infographic is a little different from the other keto guides you’ve seen.
We won’t tell you that some foods are completely banned. Instead, we have classified foods that are normally considered “no-no” into the keto diet into a “eat less” cube.
By thinking about foods in a continuum from “eat more” to “eat less,” you’ll be able to follow the keto diet and still include a wide range of nutritious foods. (Although, with severely restrictive diets like keto, we always recommend working with a doctor, especially if you plan to follow the diet in the long run).
Use our continuums to make keto food choices that are “a little better,” whether you’re navigating the aisles of the grocery store, cooking homemade food, or ordering a menu.
Also, learn at:
- Incorporate a blend of keto-compatible proteins, vegetables and fats to create nutritious meals
- Strategically improve your food choices (based on what you eat right now) to feel, move, and look better.
- Customize your intake for your individual lifestyle, goals, and (of course) taste buds.
As a bonus, we’ve provided space to create your own personal keto food list on a continuum. In this way, you can create a delicious menu suitable for you, which does not require headaches.
