Hemp seeds and oil are a great way to supplement a ketogenic diet. A ketogenic diet takes away the notion of fats being bad for you and instead concentrates on eliminating carbs from your diet. This can be tough for some because most meals we’re used to rely on carbs to round out the meal and fill you up. This is where hemp seeds are useful. Hemp seeds satiate your hunger well because they are high in fiber, but the benefits to your ketogenic diet don’t stop there.
Gamma-Linolenic acid, or GLA, is one of the benefits of hemp seeds and oil. They are full of it.

Twelve grams of it. Low calorie? Low carbs? Fills you up? Check, check and check! So start considering how hemp seeds to compliment your ketogenic diet and fit perfectly.
