What makes a meal ketogenic?

Our ketogenic meals will be as low in carbohydrate as possible and have much more calories from fat than our other meals. As we understand the diet, most are trying to stay under 50 net carbs per day.

In order for our meal to be deemed ketogenic it must contain around 60% of its calories from fat and 20g net carbs or less. Net carb is defined as total carbohydrate minus fiber. We use nutritional analysis software to determine the stats on our meals (which may have discrepancies to other software).

Some of our meals may be low in carbs (like our taco bowl) but not quite high enough in fat to be considered ketogenic! By simply adding more fat to these meals (in this example, adding sour cream) you can achieve a "more ketogenic friendly" meal.
