The low carb diet allows users to consume 70-75% of their calories from healthy fats, 15-20% from protein and 5-10% from carbs.
The regime is fairly strict, with quite a few foods on the no-no list so going on this diet requires a little time and preparation.
Here are some keto-friendly breakfasts to make your mornings that bit easier.
You can enjoy your favourite bacon lettuce and tomato sandwich using keto cloud bread made with whisked egg whites, cream cheese, psyllium husk and baking powder. You can bake them in the oven for about 25 minutes before adding your bacon, lettuce and tomato. Delish!
Keto coconut porridge
Enjoy your morning porridge keto style using coconut cream, coconut flour, eggs, psyllium husk and coconut oil. Add berries and a little more coconut cream and enjoy!
You can add your favourite keto-friendly veggies such as spinach or asparagus and add some feta or ricotta to beaten eggs. Pop into muffin tins and bake in the oven for a quick and easy portable breakfast.
Keto pancakes and berries
