As always, be sure to talk to your doctor to make sure these suggestions are right for you. Keepin’ it keto? But which deli meats are best for your Keto diet depend on what you want to accomplish and how you plan to get there. In this nifty little guide, we break down three different types of Keto dieters, with meat and cheese recommendations for each one. Or hit up your local deli counter for a pound of our Top Round London Broil Roast Beef with 13 grams of protein per serving! Like, really, really busy? We got you. While sticking to Keto AND a hectic schedule can be challenging, these convenient snacks can help you hit your daily macros. What a fun snack. Short answer: Turkey. Fat content in turkey is much less than that in chicken, pork, and beef.
Recently, the ketogenic diet has gained a lot of popularity in the world of weight loss. This diet focuses on eating foods that are high in fat, contain moderate amounts of protein, and have little to no carbohydrates. When the diet is followed properly by eating less than 50 grams of carbohydrates per day, your body should enter a state of ketosis where it will primarily use fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates. It’s been reported that the ketogenic diet also stabilizes blood sugar levels and helps to control your appetite and food cravings. I’ve personally used the ketogenic diet in the past with great results. My favorite part about the diet was that I was never really hungry. However, the ketogenic diet is not without its shortcomings. I was sometimes challenged in getting enough fiber each day and finding foods that I could eat consistently every day without getting bored. Another challenge I came across was how to handle eating out with friends and family.
The rumors are true: You can eat bacon on the keto diet. One of my favorite keto-friendly meals is a spinach salad topped with chopped bacon, sliced chicken breast, diced mushrooms, and feta cheese. The high fiber content makes this vegetable a great way to meet your daily fiber needs. Short answer: Turkey. No antibiotics ever! Cheese also makes a great snack and pairs well with bacon or beef jerky as well. A great way to incorporate a healthy salad and veggies and some tasty deli meat. However, Greek yogurt is a great alternative to cottage cheese or shredded cheese when trying to maintain a low-carbohydrate lifestyle on the ketogenic diet. Although we do not have direct evidence that they are healthier, they make more sense from an evolutionary perspective.
