High in Fats

Cream Cheese is a good source of fat because it does not contain any non-keto ingredients. (See ingredients list: sweeteners, oils, and food additives)

However, most of your fats should still come from natural and minimally processed sources like virgin olive oil, MCT oil, and grass-fed butter.

It is important to get your fats from healthy sources so your body can burn clean fuel while on ketosis.

Minimally Processed

Cream 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.
