What is Dirty Keto?
“Dirty Keto” is a variation of the popular low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet. Unlike the traditional keto diet, which focuses on healthy, unprocessed foods, the dirty keto diet allows for more leniency when it comes to food choices.
Dirty keto dieters still limit their carb intake to below 50 grams per day in order to stay in ketosis – the metabolic state in which your body burns fat for energy – but they are less strict about what types of food they eat. This means that dirty keto dieters may consume processed meats, full-fat dairy products, and other unhealthy fats.
