Are you on the keto diet, but struggling to reach your fat content? It might seem like fat would be easy to get more of, but not when you consider the goal is 70-75% of your daily intake of calories being from fat. With keto, you need the fat so that you can enter ketosis, where your body is burning fat for fuel. My favorite way to ensure that I am getting the proper amount of fat in my keto diet is by replacing one of my meals with Keto Fuel. Keto Fuel is a delicious and creamy meal replacement shake that supports the ideal carb/protein/fat percentages needed to keep you in Ketosis. When combined with a healthy diet and exercise, KetoFUEL promotes high-impact fat loss. Here are some other easy ways get more fat into your diet.
Stick to the Healthy Fats
When adding more fats to your diet, it is important to focus on the right kinds of fats. Healthy fats while on a keto diet will ensure that you maintain the right health and energy, while also increasing your fat intake to enter ketosis properly. Good sources of fat include avocados, nuts, eggs, cheese and animal protein which is your saturated fat. Other saturated fats include clarified butter, regular butter, and coconut oil. Fatty fish contain omega3s, which are also great to add to your diet.
Make Keto Coffee in the Morning
For a simple bulletproof coffee, just blend a cup of brewed coffee with a tablespoon of coconut oil, 1-2 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream, and a tablespoon of butter. You can change the quantities if you want, but this recipe has about 35 grams of fat just for one cup of coffee.
Use Fats When Cooking
Also make sure you are adding your healthy fats every time you cook. There are several kinds of healthy fats that you should keep handy in your fridge or pantry:
• lard and other animal fat
• coconut oil
• olive oil
• avocado oil
• peanut oil
• other nut oils (macadamia, almond, walnut, etc.)
• sesame oil
There are so many ways to add in fats while cooking, increasing the fat and the flavor at the same time. Not only does fat make life tastier, easier, healthier, and more satisfying, it increases your weight loss while on keto. Don’t be afraid to add the fat!
