11 Low Carb Vegetables You Can Still Eat On A Ketogenic Diet

11 Low Carb Vegetables You Can Still Eat on a Ketogenic Diet When it comes to the ketogenic diet and low carb foods there is one food group I refuse to give up. Eating low carb vegetables has been (and will be) a part of my keto diet because of the valuable nutrients they provide. As long as you know which vegetables are low in carbohydrates and stick to your daily macro numbers, there is no reason why you cant continue to eat them. For example, I try and stick to a 75% fat, 15% protein, and 10% carb keto diet. So for a 2,000 calorie diet per day, I need to limit my daily carb intake to 50 grams or less. Many of the great tasting veggies listed below can (and probably should be) eaten on a low carb ketogenic diet. There are however several vegetables that do contain a high amount of carbohydrates that should be watched. I cant remember where I read it now, but a great way to remember low/high carb veggies is like this Above Ground Vegetable If it is growing above ground, it is likely very low carb (i.e. celery, spinach) Below Ground Vegetable Root vegetables growing below ground are likely high in carbs (i.e. potatoes, beets, carrots) This doesnt mean you cant eat root vegetables Continue reading >>

    I was just curious as to how you guys like to count your carbs. I read all kinds of posts to try and keep myself motivated, but I always wondered when someone would say that they have 20g of carbs a day if they meant total carbs or net carbs.
    What number do you personally like to hover around?

    Net carbs. I'm now averaging 31, but I shoot for 28. Occasional yogurt or cheap protein powder bump up my average.

    I got the cheapest, nastiest protein powder I could at WalMart - chocoalte flavored, it's like 4 net a scoop, plus ~2 net from unsweetened unflavored almond milk (can't do water, sorry). It's pretty decent carb-wise, I think, unless you go for 2-3 scoops a day :/

Total Carbohydrates In Ketosis

She has worked at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs and currently develops comprehensive nutritional and rehabilitative programs for a neurological team. While you must limit your total carbohydrates when using a ketogenic diet, certain carbohydrates are allowed. Most of your carbohydrates should come from fibrous sources, such as vegetables, which do not count toward your total carbohydrate count. Limit your non-fibrous carbohydrates to no more than five percent of your total daily caloric intake. Certain exceptions to this rule do exist. Consult a health care professional before beginning any dietary plan. Dietary fiber counts as a carbohydrate, but your body has difficulty breaking it down into glycogen, or sugar. Consuming dietary fiber has no effect on your ability to stay in ketosis, and so you do not need to worry about it affecting your diet in any negative Continue reading >>

On The Ketogenic Diet, Do You Subtract Fiber From The Total Amount Of Carbs?

Answered Mar 20, 2017 Author has 909 answers and 578k answer views Most people are missing the point of the question - the question was not about the benefits of fiber - the question was specifically around a ketogenic diet . Because fiber is not affecting your blood glucose levels, your body does not produce insulin in response. Production of insulin is what shuts off your ketosis. So, from that perspective - yes, you do subtract fiber from total carbs when calculating your carb limits that would still require you to stay in ketosis. Answered Mar 21, 2017 Author has 968 answers and 344.4k answer views The net carbs theory gets a bit ambiguous nowadays. The fiber you find in nuts and vegetables, two things commonly eaten on a ketogenic diet, can legitimately be subtracted from your carbohydrate total. These fibers are not digested, regulate bowel movements, aid in the prevention of heart disease etc. Things get weird when we start bringing sugar alcohols into play. These sugar alcohols are listed as fiber on the label, but do not act in the same way as the common soluble/insoluble fibers in whole foods. Ive seen reports of people having blood sugar spikes despite only consuming th Continue reading >>

Net carbs are ...

    When it comes to carbs, not all carbs are created equally. What does this mean? It means that some carbohydrates that you eat will be absorbed and processed by your body like a normal carb, whereas other carbohydrates will pass through your body without negative dietary effects. The carbs that cannot be processed, and instead pass through your system, are called indigestible carbohydrates. Indigestible carbs are fiber. How do you know which carbs ...
