For the peeps that have been living la vida low carb, you know what a fat bomb is.
But, for newbies to the keto life, or just people that are curious, let me explain.
On the Keto Diet your body switches from burning insulin, which is produced in your body when you eat carbs, to burning fat.
One of the biggest mistakes I made when I first went Keto was to limit my carbs but not up my fat content.
That left me tired, cranky, and hungry ALL of the time.
Then I found the world of macro calculators and realized that I needed to get my rear in gear and get my fat intake to the proper levels.
Enter the fat bomb.
Fat bombs are gold when it comes to this.
You can have savory, or sweet, but they all help with that goal of getting your macros right and keeping your body the fat-burning machine it was meant to be!
I use a Keto nut butter that I buy from Amazon here
, which is mostly macadamia nut butter, but also has MCT oil in it for extra goodness. You can use any nut butter you want as long as it doesn’t have added sugar. The carb count will change a bit, depending on what nut butter you choose, but it will still be good.
What are the best nut butters for the Keto diet?
