( — April 9, 2018) Cheyenne, Wyoming — High protein/low carb diets are all the rage, and for good reason. They deliver results. Meat eaters aren’t the only ones who can benefit from it either as there are ways for vegetarians to get in on the act by simply planning ahead smartly. Ketosis is the aim so staying fueled on protein rich foods is the key to it all. 

“The simplest definition of the vegetarian ketogenic diet is a diet free of meat, fish, and fowl flesh that restricts carbohydrates,” says “By eating in this way, we can reap all of the benefits of the ketogenic diet while reducing our carbon footprint, decreasing animal abuse, and improving health. Eggs and dairy — two of the main animal products you can eat on the vegetarian ketogenic diet — are nutrient dense, and their production has much less of an impact on the environment than lamb, beef, farmed salmon, poultry, turkey, and pork.” 

Bearing in mind the harmony of the environment, animals and overall health, the vegetarian keto diet is doable and humane. The only thing to focus on is to keep carbohydrate intake to less than 35 grams for each day while filling up on as much healthy fat and protein laden foods as possible. Here are some of the best foods for inducing ketosis, courtesy of the Comprehensive Guide to Vegetarian Ketogenic Diet by

  • Vegan “meats” – tempeh, tofu, seitan, and other high-protein, low-carb vegan “meats.”
  • Leafy greens – spinach, kale, etc.
  • Above ground vegetables – broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, etc.
  • High Fat Dairy & Eggs – hard cheeses, heavy cream, butter, eggs, etc.
  • Dairy Alternatives – unsweetened coconut-based yogurt, coconut cream, vegan cheeses, etc.
  • Nuts and seeds – pistachios, almonds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, etc.
  • Avocado and berries – raspberries, blackberries, and other low glycemic impact berries
  • Sweeteners – stevia, erythritol, monk fruit, and other low-carb sweeteners
  • Plant-based fats – coconut oil, olive oil, MCT oil, red palm oil, etc.

This is pretty much as good as it gets regarding advice on healthy fats and protein derived from plants. Following a diet that consists dominantly of the above is a sure way to usher the body into ketosis and stay there. It also helps to include a supplement to ensure all nutritional bases are covered, as such the KetoFast™ Supplement Powder by HealthyWiser™ is a good choice since it not only sustains ketosis with the exogenous ketones it provides but it also enhances the body’s ability to absorb nutrients.
