Eggs are a unique, versatile, and hunger-busting food, whether you make an omelet or a crustless quiche. The average egg contains around 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of fat.
7. Keto-Friendly Fruits
While many fruits are off-limits on keto, you can still experience the juicy flavor-bursting goodness of several keto-approved fruits like berries. Pairing energy-boosting, fibrous low-carb sweet fruits with a fat like coconut cream to slow the blood-sugar spike is a smart move for keto dieters. This sweet raspberry chia seed pudding does the trick.
Tricks for Making Your Keto Diet More Filling
Add More Fat
Fat is filling and provides more calories per gram compared to protein and carbohydrates. Boost your fat intake by adding butter or coconut oil when cooking meals or by making a salad dressing with olive oil or a dessert bowl of coconut cream, nuts, and berries. To avoid hunger and cravings, grab a healthy high-fat snack food like an avocado, a boiled egg, or a spoonful of nut butter.
Add More Fiber
Fiber feeds the healthy bacteria (probiotics) in your gut and helps you feel fuller for longer. Most keto health advocates and experts recommend a balanced low-carb diet with a wide variety of fiber-rich foods, such as leafy greens, eggplant, cauliflower, cruciferous veggies, berries, and asparagus.
Snack on zucchini or kale chips when you want a salty crunch. Make sure you cook your fibrous veggies with delicious fat like butter, duck fat, or coconut oil. Drizzle olive oil over colorful, healthy salads.

Drink More Water
When you think you’re hungry, you might just be thirsty. Drinking a large glass of water before you eat can help you feel full and even eat less. It’s also important you stay hydrated on keto and get enough sodium and other electrolytes. Some keto dieters add electrolyte and mineral powders to their drinks.
