The ketogenic diet has become one of the most popular diets. Some people are following this diet for health reasons, more commonly though, I would say people are jumping on this low-carb diet to lose weight. To give you a quick summary of what the Keto diet is about, your diet would be made up of a lot of fat. A general rule of thumb would be 5-10 percent carbs, 20 percent protein and 60 - 80 percent fat.
When you follow the Keto diet correctly, your body enters a state of ketosis. This is why people are dropping pounds because your body does not have as many carbs to burn, so it starts burning the fat! In a short amount of time, you can see some impressive results. However, just like all diets I believe they are not always sustainable. Carbs = life in my opinion and after trying Keto for a number of months I know this diet isn’t for me. That doesn't mean I can’t enjoy these Cookie Dough Keto Fat bombs though!
So, what makes these Cookie Dough Keto Fat Bombs are perfect keto-friendly option? HEALTHY FATS! Almonds AND Almond butter will be found in this recipe and because they are relatively low in carbohydrates you can snack on them without sabotaging your Keto diet efforts.
