The Best Nuts for Keto Diet

August 10, 2018

The keto diet has become one of the most popular recent health trends. Short for “ketogenic diet,” the keto diet is all about minimizing your carbs and upping your fats. After a few days of following this eating routine, you go into something called ketosis, or the state your body enters when it doesn’t have enough carbs for your cells to use for energy. At this point, your body starts burning fat for more energy.

While keto meals can be easy to plan, it can sometimes be difficult to find snacks that fit the bill. While nuts are always a great choice for a healthy snack and the fat content is great for keto, you also need to consider the carbs. Below we’re counting down the best to worst nuts based on the amount of carbs in a 1oz portion.
