Some of the best ketogenic fat sources you can consume are nuts. Keto Diet Nuts include Walnuts, macadamia nuts, and almonds which are low-carb, yet high in omega fatty acids and can fuel your energy during the day. Macadamia nuts are a great fit because they are high in healthy fat and low in carbs.
Nuts are concentrated with potent plant compounds that combat inflammation in the body and boost immune health.
Choosing the right variety of nuts is critical, considering some variations such as peanuts contribute to inflammation. When consumed in control, the high fiber content of nuts can limit your appetite helping you to avoid consuming excess calories.
There are some nuts that are better than others yet similar in macros.
If you need a keto snack on the go, are traveling, or are looking to fill in your fat macros at the end of the day, these nuts might be a good choice.
