Keto Diet Grocery List

Starting the Keto Diet? Here's What You Should Stock Up on From the Grocery Store

If you're embarking on the keto diet, odds are you'll have to overhaul the way you normally eat. Virtually all carbs are off the table, including bread, grains, sugars, starchy vegetables, and high-sugar fruit. Instead, you'll eat plenty of fats (plant- and animal-based) and a moderate amount of protein. In fact, Catherine Metzgar, PhD, RD, and a member of the clinical team at Virta Health, told POPSUGAR that your macronutrient breakdown on the keto diet should be about 80 percent fat, 15 percent protein, and five percent carbs.

To achieve these macros, it's important to stock up on keto-friendly grocery items, especially since you'll be doing a lot of cooking and eating at home. Although you by no means need to buy everything on this list, it's a good place to start when thinking about buying the foods you'll be eating on the keto diet.
