The ketogenic diet is getting popular for those who want to lose weight. If the keto diet is followed correctly (consuming less than 50 grams of carbohydrates per day), the body should enter a ketosis state, where it mainly uses fat as fuel instead of carbohydrates. It has been said that the ketogenic diet also increases blood sugar levels and allows you to control hunger and desire for food.
What I liked most about this diet was that I was very hungry. On the other hand, the ketogenic diet is not without defects. Sometimes it was a challenge for me to get enough fiber every day and find food that I could frequently eat every day without getting bored. Breakfast was not a problem (bacon and eggs!), but most other foods contain so many carbohydrates that a single bite would free you from ketosis. But when I found out that there are wonderful foods to eat, following this diet became much less demanding. Here are the wonderful foods to eat on the ketogenic diet.
Chicken breast is another wonderful food in the ketogenic diet. It is also one of my favorite meats. It tastes good, can be prepared in several ways, and probably can only be used in any meal. You can dice it up and pan fry it. You can add it to your beautiful and delicious salad, or you can eat it as a snack. Your food is your own game.
Cheese is a wonderful appetizer and goes well with bacon or beef flakes. There is a huge collection of cheeses to choose from. It contains high Protein with very low carbohydrates. Cheese is also a good companion for your meat or vegetables. However, you may also be more aware as some cheeses have many calories.
Avocado is only one of the safest and healthiest foods in the ketogenic diet. It is very healthy food in virtually all nutrition programs. Avocadoes are full of great Protein, carbohydrates and are rich in fiber. Avocados are great because they fit into your dishes or directly into many dishes. As I said before, I like to mix them to give your food some flavor and fat.
Finally, eggs should be my favorite food in the ketogenic diet. If I don’t eat ketogenic food, I also like eggs. Eggs have Protein and therefore are full of healthy fats. Also, eggs are cheap and in many ways, easy to produce. You can make scrambled eggs, put them in an omelet with some vegetables. You can also make it your daily snack by just boiling it.
Greek yogurt has rich Protein, which helps you to enhance your digestive health. it is also an alternative to cheese. A single 1-oz serving of Greek yogurt contains 16 calories, 0.1 gram of fat, 2.8 g of Protein, and 1 gram of net carbohydrates.
Zucchini is also one of the biggest vegetables you can eat during a ketogenic diet. It is not the cheapest vegetable carbohydrate available, but it is cheap, easy to cook, and many dishes.
