21 Low-Carb and Ketogenic Weight Loss Snacks

This post may include affiliate links.

A new eating trend has taken the dieting world by storm. It’s called Ketogenics, and it’s shrinking waistlines left and right. Wait, hold on a second… Keto…what? Designed around your body’s natural production of ketones, the keto diet is essentially a high-fat, low-carb diet aimed to burn fat without starving your body. When you consume a carbohydrate-rich food like a bagel for example, your body produces glucose and insulin as its primary energy sources. Your body converts glucose into usable energy, and as a result, stores fats since it doesn’t need them immediately.

Alternatively, when you lower your intake of carbs, this “starvation of carbs” in a sense forces your body to use fats as energy instead of glucose. Known as ketosis, this metabolic process forces your system to draw energy from ketones, which are produced by the breakdown of fats. Ketosis makes weight loss a smooth-sailing process, and encourages the consumption of high-fat foods, meaning you wont feel starving or deprived!

And to simplify the process even more, we’ve grouped together 21 scrumptious snacks we encourage you to enjoy while taking on this eating lifestyle. These nutrient-rich munchies taste great and will hold you over between meals, without sabotaging your progress. Are you ready to achieve the physique of your dreams? Let’s get started!
