There’s no denying that the ketogenic phenomenon has taken over the world — often known as our social media feeds. And it’s likely not going anywhere, anytime soon. Even celebrities and our #fitspirations have attested to its weight-loss claims.
If you’re unfamiliar with the diet, Ketogenic is a diet that encourages consuming good fats but restricts the intake of carbohydrates. This basically entails avoiding food with a high amount of sugar and starch: white rice, fruits, soda, and the like.
Wondering how you can survive on such a diet? Don’t worry. There are keto-friendly counterparts to these restrictions, and you’ll be glad to know it includes desserts so satisfying your sweet tooth is not out of the question.
If you haven’t tried out the diet, take baby steps and try these keto-friendly desserts from restaurants and small businesses around the Metro:
