[Preview] What do you eat on a keto diet?

A keto diet contains very few carbs and a higher proportion of energy from natural fat The protein amount should be moderate

The diet is based on real food like meat, fish, eggs, vegetables and natural fats like butter or from fatty foods like avocado, salmon or olive oil Avoid the carbohydrate rich foods like sugar, sweets and starchy foods, bread, pasta, rice and potatoes And you could end up eating something like this in a day, just as an example A simple way to explain the difference between regular food and keto foods is that you remove the large portion of carbs, rice, potatoes or pasta and replace it with vegetables prepared in fats For example veggies fried in butter or salads with olive oil

It can really be that simple So how much should you eat? Well, you can eat when you're hungry until you're satisfied Super simple! You don't need to count calories, you don't need any pills, no special products and no meal replacements on a keto diet You only need real food Another important difference – waiting until you're hungry to eat feels easy on keto, because your body can now switch directly to burning your body fat when needed
