Top 8 Meats that are Perfect to Kickstart that New Year’s Keto Diet

No doubt you’ve overindulged during the holiday season and following a night of ringing in the New Year went even further. Today, you are most likely staring at the scale ready to tackle a new diet or exercise program among a myriad of other New Year’s resolutions. 

If you plan or have considered doing a diet in the New Year (and ALWAYS consult your physician FIRST prior to starting any diet or exercise program) one of the more popular options is the KETO or Ketogenic Diet.  Basically, it’s very similar to the Atkins diet in that you avoid carbs and instead get your calories from fat proteins.  If you want to learn more you can check out this article with more details

And speaking of proteins, meats are the best source and the Gourmet Meat & Sausage Shop has got you covered with a plethora of succulent meats that will actually allow you to enjoy this diet. 

So, without further ado, here is a list of the top 8 Keto meats according to Men’s Health Magazine

1.    New York Strip Steak

2.   Ribeye Steak 

3.    Pork Belly 

4.    Lamb Chops 

5.    Chicken Thighs 

6.    T-Bone Steak 

7.    Porter House Steak 

8.    Babyback Ribs 

You might have noticed that most of the list is comprised of different cuts of steak. However, it’s the pork belly that has the highest amount of calories and fat by a long shot when compared to the other meats weighing in at just 4 ounces it contains a whopping 585 calories and 60 grams of fat! However, no matter which way you cut it (sorry, a butcher joke!) these meats are versatile and downright delicious and will help you stick to your diet. 

Happy New Year and Happy Resolution Season!
