Raw Nuts & Seeds

RULES AND GUIDELINES: Always try to buy raw, monitor portion sizes carefully and make sure you count carb grams as certain nuts do contain carbs.

The best serving size is the palm of your cupped hand for raw nuts and 1-2 tablespoons for raw nut butters.

Dairy Fats

RULES AND GUIDELINES: Make sure to count impact carbs from all dairy sources and always choose full fat versions to avoid hidden sugars.

Always try to buy raw, organic, and grass fed sources of dairy and limit servings sizes since too much dairy can be inflammatory in certain individuals.

  • Full Fat Hard Cheeses (Raw, Grass Fed 100 Day Aged is recommended because it has NO lactose) 74% fat (NOTE: Over-the-counter processed cheese is “ok” but monitor portion sizes carefully since it lacks enzymes and friendly fats)

  • Full Fat Cream Cheese (try to buy organic) 88% fat

  • Fatty meat or fish
  • Olives
  • A handful of raw nuts or seeds
  • Raw, grass fed cheese
  • 90% dark chocolate
  • Full-fat Greek yogurt or full-fat cottage cheese mixed with raw nuts
  • Berries and heavy whipping cream

Macro Symbol (P) = Proteins

RULES AND GUIDELINES: Try to choose protein sources that have a liberal amount of fats and try to buy grass-fed, organic, hormone and antibiotic free, along with free range poultry.

Lean cuts are still healthy sources of high quality protein, but higher fat meats and fish should be your staples. If you do consume a leaner cut (chicken or turkey breast, venison, veal) make sure to add another fat source to the meal—unless it’s a post workout meal with keto carbs (details below).

Serving sizes are listed below, but the easiest way is to consume a fatty protein serving that’s the size of the palm of your hand or deck of cards

Beef or Steak: (try to use grass fed-fatty cuts) 70% ground beef is 60% fat, Venison (add fat source)
