Know what foods you should eat in your Keto Diet
Keto Diet foods
All the cuts and forms of meat are very low in carbs so there are no restrictions in this group. But for your well-being, you must choose a healthier option. The meats include all cuts of beef and mutton. Chicken and seafood are relatively lower in saturated fats and high in other beneficial nutrients. All the members of this food group are keto-friendly.
The eggs again are very low in carbs and contain mainly fats and protein. Although the recipe of the omelets varies and may include some non-keto-friendly options. But we will make the choice of ingredients easier.
