22 Snacks for a Ketogenic Diet

Are you thinking of going onto a ketogenic diet? Being on a diet shouldn't mean a short-term quick fix that causes your weight to suddenly plummet, then bunjee back up a few weeks later when you quit. It means that you follow a way of eating that is more sustainable in the long run, with more long term results. Having said that, a ketogenic diet is not suitable for everyone, so make sure you consult a healthcare practitioner before following this type of diet.
