As you can see there are a great range of delicious foods you can eat on a ketogenic diet to boost your health.

We recommend eating a high amount of salad and cruciferous vegetables every day to boost your potassium levels. 

These provide a large amount of plant based nutrients which are needed to help the body during weight loss.

Cooked vegetables lose some of their nutrients when heated, so it's important to eat plenty raw vegetables.

We recommend eating lots of kale, watercress, broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy, spinach, beet tops, asparagus and arugula.

When eating meat, try to look for high quality grass fed animal products, as these contain more nutrition. 

Always check the labels on foods and avoid foods with added MSG (monosodium glutamate) as this is made from corn starch and will slow down weight loss.
