Chinese cuisine offers a wide variety of delicious and nutritious foods that can be incorporated into a ketogenic diet.

Meats[edit | edit source]

One of the staples of Chinese cuisine is meat, and it can be a great source of protein and healthy fats on a ketogenic diet. Beef, pork, chicken, and duck are all excellent options. Pork belly, in particular, is high in fat and a great choice for those following a keto diet. Chinese-style beef and broccoli, Kung Pao chicken, and Beijing-style duck are also keto-friendly dishes.

Fish and seafood[edit | edit source]

Fish and seafood are also popular in Chinese cuisine and are great options for a ketogenic diet. Fish such as cod, bass, and halibut are low in carbohydrates and high in protein. Shrimp and scallops are also good options, and are low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats.

Eggs[edit | edit source]

Eggs are another staple in Chinese cuisine, and they make a great addition to a ketogenic diet. They are high in protein and healthy fats, and can be used in a variety of ways, such as in an omelette, fried, or as an ingredient in a dish like Egg Fried Rice.

Vegetables[edit | edit source]

Chinese cuisine also offers a wide variety of low-carbohydrate vegetables that can be included in a ketogenic diet. Chinese broccoli, bok choy, and Chinese cabbage are all low in carbohydrates and high in fiber. These vegetables are often used in stir-fries, soups and other dishes.

Nuts and seeds[edit | edit source]

Nuts and seeds, such as almonds and sunflower seeds, are also popular in Chinese cuisine and are a great source of healthy fats and protein on a ketogenic diet. They can be enjoyed as a snack, or added to dishes for added crunch and nutrition.

Fermented foods[edit | edit source]

Chinese cuisine also features a variety of fermented foods like Douchi (Black bean sauce) and soy sauce that can be keto friendly in moderation. These fermented foods are rich in probiotics and good for gut health.

Foods to avoid[edit | edit source]

It is important to note that many traditional Chinese dishes like dim sum, steamed buns and dumplings are not keto-friendly due to high carbohydrate content, often from rice and flour. Similarly, sweet and sour sauces, hoisin sauce and oyster sauce are high in sugar and may not fit in a ketogenic diet. If you're eating out, it's important to be mindful of these and ask for low-carb modifications.
