What are good fats for ketosis?
If you constantly struggle with consuming enough healthy fats on your ketogenic diet, you are not alone. An average keto diet is 70 percent fat and the truth is, sucking on a frozen stick of coconut oil (aka, fat bombs) probably isn’t the healthiest way to get the fat into your system. This is why keto sauces are so amazing – they offer the healthy fat with additional health benefits!
