You've finally decided to embark on the keto diet — congratulations. As a refresher: the ketogenic diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet.

This process of burning fat produces ketones, eventually putting your body into ketosis. Figuring out what to eat on any diet is one of the biggest parts in getting started, and if you have zero clue as to what you should be eating while following the keto diet, we've got your back.
