Calling All Keto Diet Newbies — This Is the Only Grocery List You Need to Get Started

You've finally decided to embark on the keto diet — congratulations. As a refresher: the ketogenic diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet. Fewer carbs equals lower glucose levels in your blood, causing your body to use the fat it's storing as energy. 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. To make your transition to the world of keto a little easier, we compiled a shopping list of foods that are keto-approved. Check them out below.
