Many people wonder if nuts and seeds are fine with ketogenic diet due to their high fat levels. Nut lovers rejoice because the answer is a big yes. In fact, there are plenty of them are perfect for ketogenic diet. Among the best nuts for keto are pecans, macadamia, walnuts and cashews are fine but should be consumed in moderation. Peanut butter is also good but check the labels for traces of added sugar, hydrogenated oils, monosodium glutamate and modified food starch. On the downside, raw nuts are rich in phytic acid that tends to irritate the gallbladder. In this case, limiting yourself to two to three ounces in a given meal and sticking to it is best. Seeds are high in nutrients, healthy fats and are low in carbohydrates, making them better than nuts. Recommended seeds are sunflower, hemp, chia, and flax seeds, and add them to your salads and trail mixes.
