Keto diet. What to eat?

Low-carbohydrate diets have grown in common over the last several decades. These diets have varied from simple low-carbohydrate diets to ketogenic diets and even zero carb diets. These dietary methods have gained popularity due to their efficacy in causing rapid weight loss as a result of significant improvements in eating patterns and rapid water weight loss as a result of extreme carbohydrate restriction.
In a keto diet, carbs can account for 10% or less of overall calorie consumption, with protein accounting for 15-25% and healthier fats accounting for the rest. Eating in this way will assist the body in achieving ketosis, a biochemical mechanism that occurs as the body switches to burning fat for food, which occurs only when glucose levels are exhausted. To put it simply, following the keto diet effectively entails eliminating all forms of sugar and certain carbs and stocking up on foods with a high fat content. Here is a list of food to include in your keto diet:
1. Nuts, seeds & healthful oils.

2. Fish and seafood.

3. Low-carb veggies such as broccoli.

4. Cheese.

5. Poultry & eggs.

6. Plain Greek yoghurt & cottage cheese.

7. Berries & Avocados.

8. Unsweetened coffee & tea.

9. Dark chocolate & cocoa powder.
