5 Easy Tips for Getting Enough Healthy Fats for Keto


For most of us, keto requires a pretty big shift from thinking of fat as the enemy, a “bad macro,” towards thinking of it more as part of the solution—an important part of healthy habits. But getting “enough” can be a challenge. So what is a ketonian to do?

Why it matters


First, let’s talk about why dietary fat matters on keto. 

The keto diet is a high-fat, low-carb diet that puts your body in a state of ketosis, where your body is burning fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates. But you still need to be consuming enough calories to power your body! And relying exclusively on protein can lead to medical concerns. Your body needs both protein AND fat to function.

So, how do you get enough fat on the keto diet? Here are some tips and tricks:

1. Add healthy fats to your meals

Adding healthy fats to your meals is a great way to increase your fat intake. Some examples of healthy fats include olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, and grass-fed butter. You can drizzle a bit of your favorite oil on top of your meals or cook with them to add flavor and healthy fats.

2. Eat fatty cuts of meat

Meat is a great source of protein and fat. When choosing meat, opt for fatty cuts such as ribeye, salmon, and chicken thighs. These kinds of cuts can help you meet your daily fat intake.

3. Snack on high-fat foods


We generally recommend avoiding too much snacking, but if you need some extra calories anyway, high-fat snacks like nuts, cheese, olives, and avocado are a great options. These snacks are not only delicious and keto-friendly, but can also help you reach your daily fat goals.

4. Use full-fat dairy products


Full-fat dairy products such as cheese, cream, and yogurt are great sources of healthy fats. They are also delicious and can be used in a variety of recipes. So, don’t be afraid to indulge in full-fat dairy products!

5. Make fat bombs
