Nutritional Values of Commonly Used Ketogenic Foods

I’ve had a number of emails and requests from patient’s to locate a source for fat percentages and protein contents of various foods as they prepare and follow a ketogenic lifestyle.  I’ve looked all over, however, nothing easy and concise has made itself readily available, and there hasn’t been a simple one page tool at your fingertips . . .

Hopefully, this list will start to fill that gap.  Use the list to calculate protein and fat levels as needed.  Let me know if I can add to the list or if there are foods you commonly use that I’ve missed.  Keep the ketones up and your waistline down!
