The Keto-Friendly Grocery List

The Keto-Friendly Grocery List

The ketogenic diet, often referred to as simply “keto,” has soared in popularity as many have found weight loss success with this low-carb/high-fat way of eating. Critics of the diet often say it is a fad that will only provide quick yet unsustainable weight loss results. However, as more people put the diet into practice for extended periods of time they are finding health benefits outside of weight loss such as sustained energy levels, reduced inflammation, reduction in sugar addiction and mental clarity.

The concept of a high-fat diet can easily frighten many, as for years we were taught that the phrase “low-fat” meant the healthier option. However, there are many delicious health foods that fit within the standards of a keto diet. Take a look at the grocery list below for ideas on how to shop healthy and keto.
