2. Chicken and Red Meat

Meat and poultry are staple foods for anyone on the ketogenic diet. They're rich in B vitamins, potassium, selenium, zinc, and other minerals, but have net zero carbohydrates. Red meat and chicken are also high in protein. You can preserve your muscle mass and strength by consuming high-quality protein while on a low-carb diet. If possible, you should eat grass-fed meat because it contains more omega-3 fats, conjugated linoleic acids, and antioxidants than grain-fed meat.
