As far as diets go, none is currently as popular as the Ketogenic Diet. A low-carb, high-fat diet, it works to speed up the metabolism and burn calories quickly.

Are you interested in utilizing the Keto Diet? Wondering what you can eat on the diet? Then don't stop reading now.

Without further ado, here are 15 delicious, healthy things to eat on Keto Diet.

15 Great Things to Eat on Keto Diet

The key to the Keto Diet is high-fat, low-carb foods. Some of the foods which best fit this bill are as follows.

1. Cheese

There isn't a single cheese in existence that isn't appropriate for the Keto Diet, as every cheese in the world is low in carbs and high in fat. Throw in cheese's high protein content and you've got a calorie-burning food for the ages.

You shouldn't have much trouble working cheese into your diet. You can either eat it by itself or just sprinkle atop of other keto-friendly foods.

2. Carb-free Meats

There are a variety of meats which contain few to no carbs. These include beef, pork, lamb, and chicken, to name just a few. As such, these meats are terrific for the Keto Diet.

In addition to containing almost no carbs, these meats are also high in protein, helping to sustain the muscle that often struggles to survive in a low-carb diet.

3. Seafood

Essentially free of carbs, seafood is great for those undertaking a Keto Diet. While all types of seafood offer Keto benefits, the best types of seafood for Keto purposes include salmon, shrimp, crab, and squid.

Your best bet is to alternate seafood dishes with other types of meat dishes. This will provide variety and allow you to absorb all of the beneficial nutrients these meats provide.

4. Coconut Oil

Another food which you can use to put yourself into ketosis is coconut oil.

Coconut oil is filled with a high-quality fat known as MCT. When MCT enters the body, it is quickly used for energy, foregoing the breakdown process that most fat goes through. As a result, coconut oil kickstarts the calorie burning process.

There are a number of ways to consume coconut oil. You can use it as cooking oil, you can bake it into foods with other ingredients, and you can drink it as is. Regardless of how you consume coconut oil, it will provide Keto benefits.

5. Greek Yogurt

While Greek yogurt contains more carbs than many other Keto-friendly foods, it provides enough protein to make it worth its while. Not to mention, as far as snacks go, it's about as Keto-friendly as you can get.

It should also be mentioned that Greek yogurt has appetite-whetting capabilities. It will help you to feel full throughout the day, ensuring that you don't overeat.

6. Nuts

Another keto-friendly snack is nuts. Low in carbs and high in fat, almonds, pistachios, pecans, macadamia nuts, and a variety of other nuts are exceedingly beneficial in revving up the calorie burning process.

And nuts don't just provide Keto benefits. They're also beneficial for heart health, cancer prevention, and mental health regulation.

7. Eggs

Regardless of your diet, eggs are always a great bet. High in protein and low in carbohydrates, eggs regulate the appetite, burn calories, and balance blood sugar.

8. Butter

Most of us think of butter as unhealthy. While it can be when eaten in excess, when eaten in moderation, it actually provides Keto benefits. This is due to its low carb content and high-fat consistency.

So, don't be afraid to spread that butter around. In the grand scheme of things, it's doing you a lot more good than harm.

9. Coffee

Think the Keto Diet will force you into giving up your coffee habit? Think again! Coffee is actually perfect for the Keto Diet, as it contains no carbs and works to speed up the metabolism.

Additional benefits of coffee include a reduced risk of diabetes and an improved mood.
