Best keto meals

Definition: A "keto meal" is very low in net carbs. It is not possible to put an absolute limit on it because it depends on the size of the meal. For most people a keto meal would be one with less than about 25g of net carbs. A good keto meal is a lot more than simply one that avoids carbs. "Keto" has gotten a really horrible reputation. Not because there is anything wrong with the keto nutritional philosophy but rather because of the horrible way that most people tend to implement it. There is no dispute, with keto diets, people lose weight – LOTS of it. The question is, is it healthy and what exactly are they losing – fat, muscle or both. As with most things, the devil is in the details. keto by itself is neither good nor bad, its how you implement it that determines if its healthy and if you lose just fat or lose muscle too. The meals below are not only keto but are high in protein and really healthy too. If you are trying to gain muscle then the protein content of the meal is very important. If you are trying to lose fat then its important to pack a maximum of protein, vitamins, anti-oxidants, fiber, and omega 3 fatty acids into a minimum of calories. Where most keto meals fail is that they lack non-starchy vegetables like spinach or leafy greens which contain lots of fiber and vitamins while only having a minimum of carbs.

The mistake most people make when googling "best keto meals" is that they are only getting a dangerous half answer. You cannot simply say that "baked chicken, spinach, and nuts" is a good keto meal because its NOT unless you eat just the right amount. Eat too much and you will GAIN fat, not lose it. Eat too little and you cause your body to burn off muscle. Not only do you need to know what meals to eat but what the proper portion size is!
