Ketogenic Food Pyramid

|Ketogenic Food Pyramid

Hi Friends!

We've been working on a keto food pyramid to help you stick with your diet and make the right food choices. Just like my recipes, this pyramid is primal-friendly and if you skip the dairy section, it's also suitable for a paleo diet.

To learn about ketogenic foods in detail, check out my Complete Keto Diet Food List. where I have also listed carb and protein content in common keto-friendly foods.

Isn't we should avoid the nuts and berries because of high carbs quantity in them. If we can use them what should be the duration and all can you specify how we can take it...

Hi Keshav, nuts and berries are fine in moderation - please, have a look at the full keto food list for more information: ketodietapp.com/.../Keto-Diet-Food-List-What-to-Eat-and-Avoid

Martina,
The part of the food pyramid illustration that shows how often is recommended, does it apply for the drink section only, or the food pyramid as well?
I am familiar with a few food pyramids and as far as primal or paleo nutrition pyramid goes like one from Dr Al Sears for example recommends that we eat meats often.
Thank you!

Hi Marcelo, that section only applies to the drinks. The food pyramid goes vertically while the drinks horizontally.

I also would love a small poster of thisSmile

Thank you! We plan to do that Smile

Hi guys,
I've been on Keto for a month now and lost about 15lbs. Now I'm in a stall. How can I resolve this. Also I'm way under in my calories for the day most days. Thanks

I see your food pyramid has soda/soft drinks as something to avoid.  What if it is diet soda or I often have a monster energy drink-absolute zero?  Both are no calorie, no carb. Are those on the "things to avoid" list also?

Reply

Hi Elizabeth, it depends. I follow a keto & paleo/ primal diet and therefore avoid all artificial sweeteners. Drinks sweetened with erythritol, stevia or other natural low-carb sweeteners are "allowed".

I can't eat dairy, so what can I eat to replace the full fat dairy section of the pyramid?

Reply

Hi Di, if you can't eat dairy, you can skip this section. Instead of dairy, you can use coconut milk, almond milk or other nut milks. Hope this helps!

Let me count the ways in which you rock...good job. Keep rockin it. I've learned so much from my new keto family and I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you so much Doug!

Dear Martina,
I hope you don't mind that I've converted the text to Russian.
What about healthy animal fats? Lard, tallow, goose or duck fat are delicious. Mmm, and cocoa (or cacao, I am always confused here) should belong to somewhere.
Thanks for the clear pyramid.

Hi Elena, not at all. Yes you are right, all these are suitable for a ketogenic diet. I just had limited space for the images in the pyramid. A complete list is here: ketodietapp.com/.../Keto-Diet-Food-List-What-to-Eat-and-Avoid

Yes, she does rock!

Thank you for this. It makes it so much easier to explain things to people who want to understand how this works. I think it would be a great idea to create this on manila paper with your kids.

Reply

Thank you, yes it would!

Reply

Thanks for this. It's great! So useful to give to family and friends who want to know what I will actually eat - much better than a written list of permitted foods.

You're welcome! Smile

Love this.  Thank you for developing this healthy pyramid.  I want to display it on my kitchen wall.  Do you sell a small poster size that I could frame and hang and/or give as gifts?

Reply

Thank you Marjjane, that's so sweet of you! We don't have this service at the moment but I'll look into it and see if we can do that some time soon Smile

Distilled spirits belong to the left of wine.  WIne definitely has carbs.  Distilled spirits (with no-carb mixers) have none.

Reply

It's not just carbs - I wouldn't advice drinking spirits more often than wine but that's a personal choice Smile Apart from other effects, alcohol blocks fat burning - that's why I put spirits last. Alcohol only in moderation (if any at all) - avoid for weight loss and have occasionally if in weight maintenance.
