You may have heard of the ketosis diet and have been wondering about what it's like to make the transition. Maybe you see someone at your place of work who brings their own lunch and adheres to the ketogenic diet, which generally means that this person will be eating high amounts of healthy fats (think avocado, coconut oil, MCT oil, etc.) while cutting out sugars and processed carbs nearly completely.

You may have also wondered if making the transition to a ketogenic diet is difficult.

Below are a few foods that make the transition easier -- all while still adhering to your new ketogenic diet!

1.) Have All the Meats!

Making sure you're eating a lot of clean protein is vital to keeping your ketogenic diet. Try to eat as much poultry as you can, but you're also clear to eat steak and other red meats.

2.) And All the Seafood, Too

You'll be able to eat as much seafood as you want on the ketogenic diet. But if you opt for sushi, you need to make sure you 86 the rice -- because you'd be breaking your no carb rule.

3.) Veg Out on Low Carb Veggies

You'll want to eat plenty of veggies that grow above grown, especially our leafy greens. Opt for spinach, mushrooms, green beans, and green bell peppers. Stay away from potatoes and other veggies that are higher in starch.
