Meat supplies a whole range of nutrients – including nutrients like vitamin B12 that you can’t get anywhere else. It’s also a key source of protein for keto diets. At the very minimum, humans need to eat enough protein to repair our muscles and do all the other important stuff that protein does. So “enough meat” means enough to serve as a primary protein source and round out your diet with essential nutrients that are mainly or only found in meat.

With only two ingredients, this low-carb dairy-free yogurt couldn’t be easier to make, so you can have a regular supply to turn into breakfast dishes or to add to sauces to make them super-creamy. This recipe gives enough about six small pots, but you can easily double the ingredients without having to adjust the timing. Serve this with a little honey and some berries for a fresh and fruity breakfast.
Yogurt is full of carbs so it would be better to eat a carbmaster like Kroger sells if you want to eat yogurt. Yes it is low fat but I like to add whipping cream for the extra good fat. Also, KETO is not a DIET! It is a way of eating. You will eat this way from now on. There is no eating KETO, then going back to regular way of eating. Your regular way got you in the mess in the first place. Once you go real KETO, it’s with you forever.
While I see your point with regards to animal suffering (which is an ongoing issue), this doesn't have to be the case and on the contrary, people are more and more interested in meat from ethical sources. Watching a TED talk may be an eye opener but we should all do some research on human evolution. Your comment is biased because it only looks at one side of the argument (not to mention that some points are totally wrong, such as comparing human digestion to elephants??)

I just made this for a birthday celebration. Absolutely fantastic! I had fresh limes and substituted for the lemon juice. It was so creamy and delicious 🙂 Even the sugar lovers were surprised at how great it was, couldn’t tell it was low carb. The next time I make this, it will get a topping of sweetened (Swerve confectioners) sour cream with zest mixed in. I can’t thank you enough for this recipe!
So I only had 24 oz of cream cheese, but I decided to wing it. My 9 in cheesecake pan is silicone and not very deep. After mixing everything ( did everything else by recipe, just less cream cheese) I had too much filling, so I also filled 5 silicone cupcake liners and baked it in a water bath on the lower rack. At 35 minutes the large cake was starting to brown but the small ones were still white, but seemed pretty solid, so I took them out and cooled them. Then at 45 minutes, the big cake seemed almost too brown, so I pulled it out. A couple hours in the fridge and the small ones( with no crust) popped out of the silicone liners and were super delicious. The big one came away from the sides cleanly and it would have been ready to eat already, but we already ate the little ones, so tomorrow we will see how yummy the cake is with crust. Yay for cheesecake!
Hi Dee Dee, It’s supposed to be jiggly in the middle when you take it out. It firms up as it cools and then when it chills in the fridge. I haven’t experienced cracking with it but the cause doesn’t have to do with being not done, it’s sudden temperature changes. If you want to be on the safe side you can bake it in a water bath next time. I hope you still loved the taste!
This is the only way my kids will eat Brussels sprouts! It’s actually great for me because this dish is fast, easy and healthy, and it makes a lovely side. Quick-cooking Brussels sprout halves are available in the prepackaged salad aisle at the grocery store. They’re a timesaver if you can find them, but you can always just buy whole ones and slice them in half. —Teri Rasey, Cadillac, Michigan
So I made the recipe for 16 slices. That was the default, but there was enough filling for two of the pies and only enough crust for one pie. I tried to adjust it to just 8 slices before I made the recipe but the amounts were really dumb. The amounts were in decimals for cups instead of fractions and weird amounts for tablespoons like 0.5 tablespoon, etc. 

This is one area where full keto and Bulletproof differ. Except for coconut, all nuts and legumes are suspect on the Bulletproof Diet and should be limited. All expose you to high amounts of omega-6s, inflammatory oxidized fats, mold toxins, and phytates (plant anti-nutrients). Peanuts are one of the main sources of mold toxins in our diets, and often trigger allergic responses with inflammatory polyunsaturated fats, lectins and histamines. The Bulletproof Diet also excludes all soy products due to their phytoestrogen content, which messes with your hormones and may promote cancer.
So this means you don’t need to go around drizzling bacon fat on everything you eat. You definitely can if you have a burning desire to do so and it fits into your macros… but it’s not at all necessary. It’s actually pretty easy to get adequate amounts of fat in your diet without going out of your way to do so. Contrary to popular belief, fat bombs, bulletproof coffee and the like are not fundamental for a ketogenic diet. They can be nice treats or occasional meal replacements if you like them, but they are often calorie bombs you don’t need in addition to balanced keto meals. While you certainly want to eat fat on the keto diet, calories still matter.

This is an amazing and impressive dish to make and is full of the Indian spices we love! The chicken can be marinated overnight if you have time and you will find the flavors permeate the meat even better. This delicious low-carb recipe gives you quite a mild flavor without much heat, but if you like spicy Indian food, feel free to add in more cayenne till you get the heat you want!
There are different ways to include nuts and seeds into your daily meals. Variety is key to keep you eating these foods on a daily basis. That way, you’ll also meet your daily macros and stay healthy along the way. Another great thing about these foods that they’re also an excellent source of fiber. With all that said, add these nuts and seeds to your keto shopping list today.
This recipe is quite straightforward and simple to follow, but the results are amazing! You have the flavor and consistency of cheesecake, but without the high carb content. You can even make it more mousse-like in the middle by beating more air into your filling ingredients, which would be a good idea for a lighter dessert after a heavier meal. This can be served without the sour cream topping if you want to.
First, a little background: Eric Westman, MD, director of the Duke Lifestyle Medical Clinic, explained to Health in a previous interview that in order to successfully follow the keto diet, you need to eat moderate amounts of protein, reduce your carb intake, and increase fats. When you reduce your carb consumption, your body turns to stored fat as its new fuel source—a process called ketosis. To stay in ketosis, followers of the keto diet must limit their carbs to 50 grams a day, Dr. Westman says.
This milk yogurt contains just 1 gram of net carbs, giving you a little wiggle room when it comes to carbohydrates. If you are craving additional sweetness, you can choose to sweeten your low carb yogurt with a keto-friendly sweetener, like stevia or monk fruit. You could also top with fresh fruit like blueberries or raspberries, avoiding high-carb fruits. Or, make a yogurt parfait with chia seeds and keto yogurt topped with homemade whipped cream, made with heavy whipping cream or coconut cream.

Nuts are a great source of fat, and can be a great keto snack. However, it is easy to go overboard. Most nuts are calorically dense, so they can be easy to over-consume. On more than one occasion, I have found myself sitting next to the jar of nuts and “just having a few more”. Before I was aware, I had probably consumed 800 extra calories of nuts! Depending on your goals, consuming nuts in excess can hinder your progress. That’s not to say that nuts are off limits, though. Instead, portion out single servings beforehand. Avoid sitting down with the entire container. This goes for every other snack, but I feel that nuts are one of the easiest things to overeat.


You can usually use a mix of multiple flours to get a realistic texture in baking recipes. Combining flours and experimenting with your baking can lead to much lower net carb counts in recipes. We think these lemon poppyseed muffins (a mix of almond flour and flaxseed meal) make a great texture when combined with the fats from the heavy cream and butter.
We love cheese’s creamy and smooth texture, but when you need a little crunch, it’s Whisps to the rescue! The crispy snack is made with 100 percent real cheese and is baked until it boasts a cracker-like texture and crunch. When you’re avoiding saltines, grab these low-carb thins and use them as a base for other fat-filled toppings such as jerky bits or avocado.
I can’t figure out why this recipe calls for 32oz. of cream cheese, even if making into 12 cupcakes; I ended up with a huge amount of the “cake” part after filling the cups. I could have followed the Pina Colada cupcakes but because I didn’t plan to add the Pina Colada ingredients, I thought it best to follow this regular cheesecake recipe. Did I miss something that told me to reduce the amount of ingredients if making cupcakes? Everything still tasted great but I have a ton of product left over.
Studies have shown intake of polyunsaturated fats, fiber, magnesium, and L-arginine found, all of which are found in nuts, may help reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease death, and some inflammation markers in the body. In addition, nuts provide antioxidants that are protective for the body, so this is mostly a concern if you’re eating them in large amounts daily.
I am slightly (?) confused—in the article you use phrases such as “the low carb yogurt theory”–it can be assumed–expect approximately–The actual number of carbs has been proven– Theory, assumed, expect, and “has been proven” just seem to be at odds with each other…I’ve given up Yogurt while on a keto diet and miss it. How are these claims substantiated? Appreciate any assistance you can provide..Brian Jamieson
The nominal amount of carbs allowed on keto makes it challenging to find snacks that won't screw up your diet. But nuts should be a go-to for any keto enthusiast, as they're high in fat without being loaded with too many carbs. If you're looking for the lowest carb nuts, add these to your emergency snack stash so you're prepared when hunger strikes.
