What can I actually eat on the Keto diet?

12 Jun , 2020

When we started our keto journey, we naturally looked online for information on what we can and cannot eat on this diet. A quick Google search resulted in an abundance of contradictory articles on the keto diet, which led to even more confusion than before we started.

If you're experiencing the same thing, don't worry - this article has been written especially for you! We've compiled the most basic and important information for you to get started on your keto diet.

Food you can eat on a keto diet

  • Meat
  • Fish
  • Butter
  • Eggs
  • Cheese
  • Heavy cream
  • Oils
  • Nuts
  • Avocado
  • Seeds
  • Low carb green vegetables
  • Plain Greek yogurt
  • Berries
  • Coffee and tea
  • Dark chocolate and cocoa powder

Should I eat fat free products?

The simple answer is NO! When food manufacturers drop the fat in their foods, they are likely to add in sugar to bring in the flavour and taste. These products usually have tons of added sugar or other starchy fillers to make them more palatable. Fat is flavour, and when you remove fat, you destroy the natural flavour and completely change the consistency. Food companies use sugar to make up for it.

One of the biggest mindset to shift when following a ketogenic diet is that fat is not bad, and it most certainly does not make you fat! Fat is your friend, so embrace it and enjoy the flavour it brings to your meals and drinks.

What is the keto flu?

Getting into ketosis can be quite a test on your body. Many Ketoers describe the first week as feeling like you have the flu. Some of the reported side effects include headaches, tiredness, nausea, dizziness, and an increase in cravings. To get through this, it is recommended to drink plenty of water.

Like any diet, keto works by ensuring you eat less calories than you burn.
