Is Cottage Cheese Keto?

Cottage Cheese is keto-friendly because it is low in net carbs.

Low in Net Carbs

Cottage Cheese is good for keto because it is low in net carbs (3.38g of net carbs per 100g serving).

It is important to limit your net carb consumption to 20g - 30g per day to stay in ketosis.

You can calculate your ideal daily net carb allowance by using this keto macros calculator. Then use the serving calculator below to determine a serving size that fits your net carb budget.

Low in Fats

Cottage Cheese is low in fats so make sure to supplement it with foods that are high in healthy fats.

Your body uses fat as energy while on ketosis so it is important to include healthy fat sources in your diet.

Examples of healthy fat sources for keto are virgin olive oil, grass-fed butter, and MCT oil.

Minimally Processed

Cottage Cheese is minimally processed and free of harmful ingredients like non-keto sweeteners, highly refined oils, and food additives.

It is important to check both macros and ingredients of your foods to achieve a healthy weight loss on keto.
