The vegetarian ketogenic diet is a diet free of meat and restricts carbohydrates. The daily average carb intake for an individual on the keto diet is about 35 grams. The underlying rule for anyone on the Keto Diet remains standard, to get 70% of your calories from fat. A calorie is a measure of energy released on digestion of food.
For vegetarians, the remaining 25% to 30% calories should ideally come from plant-based proteins and dairy.
Another important point to keep in mind while starting the Keto diet is that not all vegetables have the same carbohydrate – protein – fat content. Potatoes, for example, are a high carb vegetable and not Keto friendly. Few of the vegetables that have a low carb content are leafy greens (spinach, kale, etc), broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini and eggplants. Cottage cheese is a great source of protein for vegetarians looking to start the Ketogenic Diet.
