If you’re jumping up and down ready to jump-start your health, the keto diet is for you! Below is a list of over 100 delicious keto snacks that will help you maintain a state of ketosis on your keto diet!
But first, what is the Keto diet?
In short, the keto diet trains your body from using carbs for energy to using fats for energy. The quickest and fastest way your body can produce energy is by burning carbohydrates. Glucose and insulin are produced when you eat carbohydrates which allows you to run, jump and swipe your thumb up as you scroll this article.
Your body needs fuel for energy. But what if you don’t give it the standard carbohydrate fuel you’ve always given it? What if that dries up? What if it HAS to use fats as fuel?
Well, the only way that can happen is if you deplete it from carbohydrates.
The keto diet is high in fats and very low in carbs. This changes your body from using carbs to fat as energy.
So instead of donuts and french fries, you get to indulge on bacon, cheese and exotic items such as biltong and coconut fat bombs – yum!
