Keto Food Pyramid For Ketogenic Diets [infographic]

Keto Food Pyramid Break Down

70% Fat

Fats take up the greatest percentage of the keto food pyramid for a ketogenic diet and can be found at the bottom largest portion.

  • Fats will be your energy source through ketosis.
  • You should aim for healthy Saturated Fats such as Coconut oil and Butter
  • Monounsaturated Fats such as Avocado and Macadamia Nuts
  • Plenty of Omega-3s such as those found in some nuts and oily fish

25% Protein

Moving towards the middle of the Keto Food Pyramid we get to fatty protein rich foods such has meats, eggs, and whole fat cheeses. Protein should make up 25% of your Ketogenic Diet.

Do not eat excessive protein as this can push you out of ketosis. For more information on Ketogenic Diet Weight Loss, Ketosis Done Properly is Key

5% Carbohydrates

The small area at the top of the keto food pyramid you will see a small allowance of 5% for carbohydrates. This will allow for a modest amount of mostly green cruciferous vegetables to fit into your ketogenic diet. You could add “some” nuts such as Almonds or Walnuts at very small amounts, we find Macadamia Nuts to be the healthiest (be mindful of high Omega-6s in Walnuts as they can be inflammatory).

This small amount of carbohydrates in the Keto Food Pyramid is not so you can fit a cupcake or block of chocolate in at night. As stated above that 5% carbohydrate allowance is to be made up of mostly green cruciferous vegetables and trace amounts of carbs in other things such as macadamia nuts or heavy cream.
