The 6 Best Nuts for Keto and 3 That Will Kick You Out of Ketosis

July 7, 2023 0 Comments

Many nuts fit into the high-fat keto diet recipe.

“Nuts can be a great addition to a keto diet because they’re low in carbs and high in healthy fats,” says Haley Bischoff, MD, nutritionist and owner of RÅ«tsu Nutrition. Bischoff adds that nuts are also rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber.

As if these benefits weren’t enough to start the crunch, nuts have also been well researched for their ability to help reduce the level of cholesterol and triglycerides1, improve blood sugar levels and reduce inflammation2. These cardiometabolic bonuses can add to the overall picture of healthy weight loss while on keto.

Of course, if you want to lose weight, the feast of nuts cannot be all day, every day. But here’s some intriguing (and frankly, pretty awesome) news: Studies show that eating nuts in moderation does not contribute to weight gain3. Actually, the body doesn’t even usually absorb all the calories from nuts4, according to a USDA study. Nuts such as almonds eaten whole can provide up to 32% fewer calories than listed on the food label due to their bioavailability and the way the body absorbs their nutrients.
