15 Keto Meals That Are Great For Losing Weight

There are so many options for diets these days, it’s so hard to distinguish which is our best option. The list begins with paleo, Atkins, low carb, and now, of course, the keto diet. The keto diet is best described as a diet that is extremely high in fat and very low in carbs.

 15 Keto Meals That Are Great For Losing Weight

The whole purpose of the keto diet is to allow your body to enter into “ketosis”, which is the metabolic process in which our body is producing and using “ketones” as its primary source for energy.

Our bodies can start producing ketones as early as 12 hours after avoiding glucose. This does not mean your body will enter into ketosis this quickly, this metabolic process can happen as early as three days, or can even take as long as two weeks. It all depends on how long your body has been using “sugar” as its primary source for energy.

Ok, just wanted to give you a little information on what the keto diet is and when you should expect to start seeing results.

Now that we’ve covered that basis, let’s cut down to brass tax here!

Let’s dive into those delicious keto meals!
