IS GROUND BEEF KETO?

At the most basic level, yes, ground beef is considered to be keto. Keto, of course, is the slang term for anything that meets ketogenic diet standards and can be eaten by those pursuing that way of eating.

But what exactly makes ground beef keto and more importantly, is all ground beef considered to be the same?

WHAT MAKES IT KETO?

First, ground beef is considered to be keto due to its high fat content. As a general rule, 70/30 ground beef contains 8g of fat per ounce. For comparison, chicken breast has less than 1g of fat per ounce.

Even when cooked or browned, ground beef retains a good portion of the fat, making it a wonderful meat to use in a plethora of keto/low-carb recipes.

CHOOSING A PROPER TYPE OF GROUND BEEF

Perhaps labeling ground beef keto isn’t the right thing to do without some further explanation.

To be specific, not all ground beef can be considered keto.

In fact, anything above 80/20 ground beef is too lean and doesn’t have the necessary fat content. When you’re choosing ground beef at the store, make sure to go for the 70/30 or 80/20.

Otherwise, you are getting into purely low-carb territory, which offers a higher amount of protein than what is needed for ketogenic diets.

Believe it or not, eating too much protein can actually hurt your low-carb diet. Protein can be converted to glucose by your body through a process known as glucenogenesis.

To put it simply, when your body breaks down proteins, it can then break the smaller molecules down further and turn them into glucose.

And, of course, glucose is what can stall or reverse your low-carb/ketogenic ambitions. Therefore, keep the protein moderate and the fat high, and aim to buy the proper mix of ground beef when grocery shopping!
