If you’ve been thinking about losing weight, you’ve probably come across the keto diet. This high-fat, low-carb diet is intended to put your body into a state of ketosis, where fat is being burned for fuel instead of carbohydrates. Although many people have found weight-loss success 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.

While bumping up your fat intake and cutting down on carbs can help decrease hunger and keep blood sugar in check, the keto diet is not for everyone, so always check with your doctor or a registered dietitian before making any major changes to your diet.

These breakfasts feature at least 15 grams of healthy fats from sources like avocado and nuts and are paired with low-carb veggies like greens and mushrooms.
