    How to get enough cals on a Keto diet???


    I try to eat 4000 calories and 300 grams of protein per day. I can get that much protein, but how can you get that many calories on a keto diet without carbs? suggestions?

    Oils (olive, coconut, avocado, etc.) are your friend too, in that situation.

    Fat is your friend on keto. Oils, butter, heavy cream, cheese, eggs, peanut butter (watch the carbs if you have too much). Fatty meats are great too. Mmm bacon

    It's not that hard. I did it for three months spending 70 a week on food. Eating a pound of 80/20 beef a day helps, especially with 1/2c of marble jack cheese melted on top.

    thats probably too much protein to stay in ketosis. But all the suggestions so far are good, plus nuts in general.

    i always found adding olive oil into my protein shakes did very well. also works great to flush out the plumbing..
