Low-calorie keto snacks – If you are following a keto diet, you already know that you can burn fat to get energy as long as you keep your carbohydrates intake down to a maximum of 50 grams per day. The fat in the foods you eat is broken down in the liver, producing tiny ketone molecules. Since your body no longer has the glucose from carbohydrates to use as energy, it becomes the primary provider of this energy.
A keto diet followed correctly will definitely have the results you expect. However, sometimes cravings and deprivation of foods that you used to adore before adopting a ketogenic diet can become an obstacle to your healthy diet, especially if you love snacking between meals.
To stay away from foods you need to avoid during the keto diet, we have prepared a list of delicious low-calorie keto snacks that you can prepare yourself, buy or eat as they are – plain.
Having these snacks at hand will make the difference between success and failure in sticking to your healthy lifestyle.

We’ve selected three of the foods that you can eat as they are to stay healthy, positive and committed to your keto diet.
Colourful, rich in fibre and antioxidants, juicy, refreshing and keto-friendly, berries are at the top of the natural foods you can eat to maintain good health. Since they are lower in carbs than other fruits, they are the perfect ketogenic diet snack at any moment of the day.
