What Is the Vegan Keto Diet?
We're currently writing a Vegan Keto Diet guide and the first question is "What is Keto?"
The ketogenic diet is low in carbs, high in fat and moderate in protein.
Carbs are typically reduced to less than 50 grams per day to reach and maintain ketosis — a metabolic process in which your body burns fat for fuel instead of glucose
Since this way of eating is composed mostly of fat — generally around 75% of your intake — keto dieters often turn to high-fat animal products, such as meats, butter and full-fat dairy.
However, those who eat plant-based diets, including vegans, can follow a ketogenic diet as well.
People on a vegan diet consume only plant-based foods, such as vegetables, fruits and grains, and avoid animal-based foods like meat, poultry, eggs and dairy.
Vegans can reach ketosis by relying on high-fat, plant-based products like coconut oil, seaweed, avocados, seeds and nuts.
