A list of healthy foods for Keto dieting.
Nowadays Keto has become one of the most popular
diets to lose weight and get healthy.
The ketogenic diet simply removes foods which
are high in carbohydrates and replaces them
with healthy alternatives.
The goal is to stay under 20g of net carbs
per day so that that body can burn its own
fat for energy.
In today’s video we will share with you a
list of healthy foods which contain little
to no carbs or sugars.
These will provide the body with lots of nutrients
and allow it to heal naturally and shed excess
body fat.
Let’s take a look at some of these foods.
1.

on the planet.

to lower inflammation and provide energy and
nutrients.
This is unlimited on keto and is not considered
as a carbohydrate.

Pure butter that has not been blended with
vegetable oil is one of the best sources of

pasta or waffles.

alongside carbs such as bread.

cells.

Xylitol is a natural sweetener made from the
wood of birch trees.
This tastes sweet and exactly the same as
sugar yet does not cause a high spike in insulin.

or even a healthy pizza crust.
21.
Raw Cacao Powder
Don’t sacrifice your love of chocolate, as
you can use raw cacao powder in healthy keto
recipes.
Be sure to check this spelling and look for
“Cacao” and not “Cocoa.”
Cacao is made using a cold pressed method
which does not destroy its nutrients.

As you can see there are a great range of
delicious foods you can eat on a ketogenic
diet to boost your health.
We recommend eating a high amount of salad
and cruciferous vegetables every day to boost
your potassium levels.
These provide a large amount of plant based
nutrients which are needed to help the body
during weight loss.
Cooked vegetables lose some of their nutrients
when heated, so it’s important to eat plenty
raw vegetables.
We recommend eating lots of kale, watercress,
broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy, spinach,
beet tops, asparagus and arugula.
When eating meat, try to look for high quality
grass fed animal products, as these contain
more nutrition.
Always check the labels on foods and avoid
foods with added MSG (monosodium glutamate)
as this is made from corn starch and will
slow down weight loss
