Ketogenic Diet Grocery List

Are you just getting started on a ketogenic diet and not sure where to start as far as what to eat? The list below is full of the most popular “keto foods” broken down into respective categories.

Ketogenic or “keto” diets are a form of very low-carbohydrate diet where generally under 20g of carbohydrates are consumed each day. With glucose being in limited supply from the low carb intake your body will begin producing ketones to power your body. Some believe ketogenic diets are more effective in terms of fat loss because of this but the important thing in any diet is the caloric deficit – remember there is no magic in weight loss. With that said, many people find eating a higher fat low carb diet is easier to stick to and keeps them full longer. If you’re interested in seeing if it works for you we recommend a 2-3 week trial period.
