How much potassium do I need on keto?

Potassium is an important nutrient that's mostly found in plant foods. It can be a bit tricky to get enough potassium on keto, so make sure to be mindful of your potassium intake. You should aim for 4,700 mg of potassium a day [1]. Keto diet foods rich in potassium include:

  • avocados (~ 1,000 mg per average avocado)

  • nuts ( ~ 100-300 mg per 30g/1 oz serving, depending on the type)

  • dark leafy greens (~ 160 mg per cup of raw, 840 mg per cooked)

  • salmon (~ 800 mg per average filet)

  • mushrooms (~ 100-200 mg per cup)
