In recent years, the keto diet has become the go-to nutrition plan for people looking to lose weight, quit carbs and create a more healthful balance of gut bacteria.

This particular dietary intervention, which is built around high fat consumption, moderate protein and barely any carbohydrates, is especially useful for those looking to burn the most stubborn kind of fat of all – that which forms a soft mound across the midriff. Of course, equally fascinating is the potential of ketones to boost cognitive function and energy supply.

While fat is king on the keto diet, since the intention is to alter the macronutrient your body uses for fuel (which is to say, from carbs to fat), many people are unsure exactly how much protein to consume, since the prevailing wisdom is that too much can kick you out of ketosis. The consensus appears to be somewhere between 1-1.7g per day, per kg of body weight. In other words, around 85-110g per day if you weigh 70kg.

Ultimately, around 25-30% of your daily calories while on keto should come from protein, with 60-65% coming from fat and only 5-10% from carbohydrates.

Needless to say, protein powders for keto dieters can be incredibly useful, especially for athletes and those engaged in sports, who should trend towards the 1.7g per day range. With that in mind, here are four keto-friendly supplements you ought to consider.
