Keto Grocery Shopping For Beginners

If you’re considering going keto, you’re likely looking to get lean quick and have mentally prepared yourself for cutting out almost all carbs from your diet. Although many healthy carbs can help uncover your abs, the key to killing the keto diet is eating foods that are high in fat, low in carbs, and contain moderate amounts of protein. That way, you allow your liver to produce ketone bodies, which the body uses for energy rather than its usual primary source of energy—glucose, a carb.

When we adopt a low-carb, high-fat diet, the body switches to burning fat (which turn into ketone bodies in the liver) for fuel—ultimately slimming us down, reducing bloat, and boosting brainpower. Before you vow to get trim and start your own keto journey, stock up on these essential keto groceries.

Since I have SO many products that i want to mention I realized I couldn’t put them all in one post. So I decided to break it into two posts. Today Is part 1 and In a few days, part 2 will be up.

**Disclaimer today’s post contains affiliate links in which i do make a small commission. By using my links you are helping me to keep my blog running thank you for your support.**
