WHAT IS THE KETOGENIC DIET?
The ketogenic diet (often called keto) is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares similarities to paleo, Whole30, and Atkins. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat. When your body switches to burning fat for its primary fuel source, that’s when you hit ketosis.
While on the Keto diet you’re supposed to get at least 70 percent of your calories from fat, 15 to 25 percent from protein, and 10 percent from carbohydrates. You’re supposed to avoid all grains, legumes, root vegetables, fruit, (except berries) and sugar.

- Pouring off some of the bacon fat partway through cooking will help keep the zucchini from getting to soggy and will also help the bacon get crispier.
- Using a thicker baking pan is important for this recipe because a thin baking pan could warp in while baking causing the grease to spill onto the bottom of your oven.
- You must use Parchment paper Not waxed paper. You can also use a baking rack over a baking pan, or a non greased cookie sheet if preferred.
- Serve with a side of Keto Approved Ranch Dressing.
