Finding a Balance Can Be Hard, but Eating Healthy Doesn’t Have To Be
The best way to set yourself up for success is to source healthy keto-friendly foods that nourish your body and help put you in ketosis. This means you’ll have to give your grocery list and pantry a makeover.
The best keto-friendly foods are:
Unprocessed meats are low carb and keto-friendly, and organic and grass-fed meat might be even healthier, beef, veal, game meat, chicken, turkey, poultry, pork, lamb, goat.
Preferably organic, free-range. Whole eggs — yolks and whites — are the main source of fat and protein.
Nuts and seeds
Macadamia, hazelnuts, brazil nuts, almonds, walnuts, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and nut butters.
A moderate amount is OK on keto, small amounts of raspberries, blackberries and strawberries are okay.
Fish and seafood
These are all good, especially fatty fish like salmon, also sardines, mackerel and herring. If you can find wild-caught fish, that’s probably the best, and seafood (shrimp, mollusks, lobster, etc).
Full-fat cheeses, sour cream, full-fat (unsweetened) yogurt, grass-fed butter, ghee, milk, and heavy cream.
Use fat in cooking, like Butter, Sesame Oil, Avocado Oil, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Hazelnut Oil, Walnut Oil, MCT Oil.
Fresh or frozen – either is fine. Choose vegetables growing above ground like Spinach, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, and other leafy greens and avocados.
Continue to the first day keto
Don’t forget: you don’t need to count calories. And most importantly…sit back, savor and enjoy the meal!

Frequently Asked Questions
Your Keto questions answered
WHAT IS A MACRO CALCULATOR?
A Macro Calculator basically tells you how many grams of macro nutrients you should be getting from carbs, fats, and protein. This keto macro calculator is optimized for the ketogenic diet.
Your Keto Macros Explained
Let’s recall that for the classical ketogenic diet, your food intake will be:
- 70-80% of calories from fats
- 20-25% of calories from protein
- 5-10% of calories from net carbs (Net carbs are the grams of carbohydrates in a food minus the grams of fiber in it)
With this distribution, a person eating 2,500 calories per day will eat:
- 208 grams of fat
- 125 grams of protein
- 30 grams of carbs
For most people, a range of 20-50 grams of carbohydrate intake per day is ideal for the keto diet. Some people can go as high as 80 grams per day to stay in ketosis, but the majority should stay in the 20-50g range for best results. Each person’s metabolism is different.
If you used the standard keto calculator, then your target carbs should be in this optimal range.
Protein should be kept to adequate proportions. Eating around 1.5 to 2g of protein per kg of lean body mass (0.68 – 1g of protein per lb. of lean body mass) is ideal. Your protein intake goal will only be higher if you want to build muscle, lift heavy weights almost every day, or follow a high-protein keto diet.
The remaining 70-80% of your calories come from fats. Since fat is the main source of nutrition on a ketogenic diet, it’s important to source high-quality, healthy fats.
Your calorie target is measured based on:
- Your total daily energy expenditure (TDEE)
- Your calorie intake goal (to lose, gain, or maintain weight)
For instance, if you need 2000 calories to cover your basic energy expenditure, but you want to lose weight, then your target calories can be 1800 (a deficit of 200 calories per day).
