Meet the Keto Model
A standard keto diet model looks something like this:
- 20 percent of calories come from proteins
- 75 percent from fats
- 5 percent from carbohydrates
This macronutrient exclusionary diet eliminates sugar, grains, and most fruits while emphasizing green vegetables, fats, and proteins. The fat sources include avocados, nuts, cheese, bacon, red meat, (cheese, bacon and red meats can be eaten in moderation, but aren’t considered beneficial for health) eggs, and other saturated, polyunsaturated, monounsaturated, and natural trans fats.
