Why you should try keto Indian recipes

A keto diet is a proven way to lose excess weight without feeling too hungry. It’s a high-fat and low-carb diet that drives your body into ketosis, a state where you predominantly burn fat for fuel instead of carbs.

Although it’s been controversial for a long time, there are studies that show beneficial effects of a keto diet. Beyond weight loss, it can improve your cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar, lower your triglycerides.

It can be challenging to find low-carb Indian recipes because Indian food tends to have high-carb ingredients (like rice, potatoes, peas, lentils, sugar) which you should avoid while on keto.

We’ve made sure to choose only low-carb Indian food for this list. These recipes are great options to try on a keto diet as they contain no more than 10 g carbs per serving.

If you aren’t sure whether a ketogenic diet is right for you then you should consult a registered nutritionist, dietitian or your family doctor.

Keto Indian food for weight loss

A ketogenic diet and weight loss are certainly good comrades. So how exactly do they work together?

As already mentioned, a keto diet makes your body burn more fat for fuel. The aim, like any weight loss diet, is consuming less calories and burning more than you need to maintain your weight.

Some keto diets also provide an increased protein intake which is great for satiety and faster metabolism. High-protein low-carb Indian food can certainly reflect well on how your body looks!

Indian cuisine has numerous keto-friendly options with healthy veggies and spices to help you control your weight loss (and lots of Indian salads for weight loss can be found too!). So this low-carb Indian food list is well worth a try!
