Maine Lobster Keto The Answer Will Surprise You Blog Image

Is Maine Lobster Keto?

The answer might surprise you!

The Keto diet took the world by storm a few years ago as celebrities and wellness personalities swore by the new approach to dieting.

The diet is pretty straightforward and looks remarkably similar to the Paleo and Atkins diets we’ve all known about for years. The principle? Keep your carbohydrate intake as low as possible by replacing carbs with fats. The thought-process of the diet is that the brain and body use fat as a primary energy supply rather than simply using carbs and sugars. This state of the body is otherwise known as “ketosis” and is why the diet allows you to lose weight.

Of course, the diet has a little more nuance than what was briefly described, but you get the idea.

So...what does any of this have to do with Maine lobsters? Lobsters, and a lot of seafood in general, are Keto diet approved!

Maine Lobsters for Keto?

Maine lobster might not sound like the ideal food for keto, but did you know it has zero carbs, high protein and is a low fat food? All key to success with the keto diet.

Lobsters are also packed with selenium and omega-3 fatty acids, which some say could help the body manage certain important functions such as the thyroid, while potentially helping to ease bouts of depressions at the same time!

Other Seafoods

At Get Maine Lobster, we serve a whole variety of seafood meals. If you’re trying the keto diet and want some more options beyond the usual foods, then why not try some of these:

Salmon is arguably the most keto-friendly food out there other than Maine lobster. is rich in potassium and low in carbs. It’s also packed with protein which, in addition to other benefits, is also great for portion control as the large amount of protein can make you feel full for longer.

Mussels are some of the most popular seafood dishes out there, and they make fine additions to any keto diet. While they do have carbs, it’s still relatively low and is more than made up by their high nutritional value.
