15 Keto-Friendly Lunches With Up to 20 Grams of Fat

In This Article

You’ve likely heard about the keto diet for weight loss and advocates say it also helps decrease hunger and keep blood sugar in check. This high-fat, low-carb diet aims to put your body into a state of ketosis, where fat is burned for fuel instead of carbohydrates.

While it is possible to successfully lose weight on the diet, sticking to a lower carb count (a 4:1 ratio of fat to carbs is often recommended) can be hard to sustain long-term. It’s a good idea to check with your doctor or a registered dietitian before making any major changes to your diet.

If you’re looking to add more fat to your lunches, these recipes feature at least 10 grams per serving from healthy sources like fatty fishavocadocheeseeggs and nuts.
