The ketogenic diet might help you shed a few pounds, but if you’re not a fan of eating bacon, chicken and cheese for every meal, you might find the diet limiting. Enter the ketotarian diet, a modification created by Dr. Will Cole that allows meat, fish and cheese in moderation but focuses mostly on low-carb choices; healthy, plant-based fats; and non-starchy vegetables. Here are 16 recipes to get you started.
