16 Indian Keto Breakfast Recipes

A ketogenic diet is a high-fat, moderate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet. This diet induces the body to substitute fats in place of carbohydrates as a source of energy, leading to an accelerated weight loss, in addition to the reversal of PCOD, Diabetes, and Thyroid. The key to any keto diet is to trigger the process called ketosis, which involves the substitution of fat as a source of energy. For this process to occur, it is imperative that we consume foods that are extremely low on carbs, which is why we have curated these Indian Keto Breakfast recipes which would help you kickstart your day!

1.Keto Upma
