A low-carb, high-fat diet is the ketogenic diet. You've probably heard a lot about the keto diet over the past few years. While many fad diets fade away with time, the keto diet has only grown in popularity. Even some restaurants and food providers have begun to provide keto-friendly options. What foods do you eat on a keto diet? Consultant Nutritionist Rupali Dutta explains, "On a Keto diet, foods that are high in fat, protein, and fiber are ideal. Coconut oil, clarified butter (ghee), butter, chicken, eggs, all vegetables, lentils, legumes, pulses, dry fruits, nuts, seeds, cottage cheese, and other types of healthy cheese like goat cheese and feta cheese are some of the foods that can be included in a keto diet."
