When you’re on a strict ketogenic diet, you have to make sure that you’re able to keep up with your daily macros. This means that you need a certain number of fats, protein, and carbs to stay on track with your weight loss goals.
Sometimes, these macros can seem a little outrageous for beginners. The people just starting the diet don’t understand how much they actually need to consume.
Because of this, they may fall short of one of their requirements. The macro they usually fall short of is their fats.
Fats might be the hardest macro to consistently reach just because this number is typically the highest and most people see it as a number that they just can’t get to.
The problem with falling short on your fats requirement is that you are slowing down your body when it comes the process of ketosis.
You won’t be losing the weight you should be losing if you were able to stay on top of your daily macros.
This is where fat bombs come into play.

Everyone knows that next to jelly, chocolate is the perfect partner to peanut butter. Some may even argue that chocolate is a better partner than jelly.
These fat bombs are going to remind you of Reese’s cups. However, there is going to be a little bit more to it when you taste the saltiness of the bacon.
Let’s be honest, bacon makes everything it touches infinitely better. I’ve never had anything with bacon that I didn’t enjoy eating.

I’m a huge cinnamon fan. This fat bomb gives people something they are really going to enjoy if they enjoy the taste of cinnamon.
Adding the coconut to the mixture only adds to the greatness of the fat bomb.
It may seem weird since most people see cinnamon as a type of sugar and they see coconut as a fruit, two things that aren’t really allowed on the ketogenic diet. Trust me, this fat bomb is going to work for you.
You are going to like it so much that you’re never going to believe that it’s helping you lose weight.

Neapolitan Fat Bombs
Anybody that loves ice cream knows exactly what Neapolitan flavor is. This is when you have chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry side by side.
You can either eat them separately or go all in and eat them together. It’s typically a great blend of flavors that keep your taste buds guessing.
The same holds true with this fat bomb. You’re going to have the three distinct layers that are chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry.
