7 Keto Fat Bombs for a Satisfying Low-Carb Snack

7 Keto Fat Bombs for a Satisfying Low-Carb Snack

Just a few years ago “keto fat bombs” may not have sounded like the most appetizing or healthiest snack, but thanks to the ketogenic diet, this sweet confection is having a major moment. The ketogenic diet induces ketosis, a state in which your body burns fat for fuel instead of carbs. Fat bombs help dieters reach and maintain ketosis by providing a fuel-rich and satisfying dose of calories with very few carbs. Fat bombs usually have large amounts of fat of course, in the form of avocado or coconut oil and grass-fed butter. The idea with these high-calorie nibbles is to keep you fuller longer. Just remember to stick to one serving!
