Can you really eat bacon as a healthy part of a ketogenic diet?
You most certainly can, as long as it is turkey bacon!
Despite the negative reputation, organic turkey bacon is actually a very nutrient dense food.
It is important to remember, however, that processed meats are still unhealthy so you want to find uncured and unprocessed turkey bacon if you want to get the most benefit.
We also only recommend that you only consume turkey bacon 2-3 times per week (and even less if you have high cholesterol).
With all this said, turkey bacon deserves to be recognized as a potentially healthy addition to a successful ketogenic diet.
