I find that I just canNOT follow any eating plan that has a 'name'. Seriously. I looked online for what "keto diet" really is and I found variations - some that I would not do and some that I think I am
This is how I eat: any meat/poultry/fish, any leafy green vegetable (lettuce, spinach, kale, cilantro), all veggies but not
potatoes, yams or sweet potatoes, no rice, no food made from flour made from grains, no food made with sugar (or honey or maple syrup) and the only fruit I eat is berries a couple of times a week. I eat eggs, nuts and cheeses. I use butter or a butter/olive oil spread when I saute mushrooms., for example. I also use sunflower or walnut oil when I find them on sale. I eat some vegetables cooked and some raw like these: bell peppers, mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, cabbage. A typical dinner for me is a piece of chicken, a handful of riced cauliflower (Green Giant has the best in my opinion, no added salt.) with some cilantro or parsley mixed in and a couple of these on my plate: radishes, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, a broccoli floret or two, a slice of red or green pepper, a celery stalk cut up, a little piece of cheddar.
Well, I could go on. I don't think this is a "keto diet" because it's not high fat. I'm mindful of extra salt so I buy low-sodium olives (Early California brand) and rinse them out. Anyway, this works for me and my lab tests are really good.
