    I am a professional barista who has worked in two different coffee shops (family owned upscale) and make special low carb drinks all the time. If any of you have a favorite drink that you need modified for keto, let me know and I can let you know what to tell your barista so they make it properly.
    As far as keto goes, you can have espresso or matcha/tea lattes made with almond milk (if they use the unsweetened kind) or coconut milk and the sugar free syrups, iced or hot. Cappuccinos and macchiatos can't really be made well with non-dairy milk by all baristas, but you can have those too if you get someone good. I'll get to the heavy whipping cream thing further down.
    You can only have chai (or other tea) lattes if they make their own unsweetened concentrate. Prepackaged chai concentrate has tons of sugar and preservatives, plus it's no where near as good. If you're in a coffee shop and they DO use prepackaged chai, ask them to brew you a fresh 4oz chai (or matcha/green or herbal tea If you don't want chai) and let it sit 6 minutes then make your latte from that. The flavor is fantastic. Any quality coffee shop should be happy to do this, not sure if Starbucks will though.
    Most of the time, heavy creams used have 1 or .5 carbs per two tablespoons (companies aren't required to list that it has any if it's .5g or lower per serving). Heavy cream is not zero carb. Lattes typically have 6oz to 12oz of milk in them. There are 2 tablespoons in 1oz, so keep in mind that your heavy whipping cream latte (called a breve) and depending on the size these Brians, could have 6 to 12 carbs per drink and up to 600 to 1200 calories. Almond milk and coconut milk usually has 1 to 2 carbs per 8oz and 30-50 calories. Half and Half has less calories but similar carbs compared too hwc. So just use your better judgement.
    Iced coffee with hwc is great on keto because they typically only add one to three ounces of cream compared too the 6 to 12 in breves.
    If you want an espresso drink made with Half and Half, it's a breve, not a latte. Lattes use milk. You can get breves made with hwc.
    If you have a hot ( cold is by actual volume minus ice) 20oz drink ( example), there are typically 4oz of espresso in it (4 ish shots). Your drink does NOT have 16oz of milk (or alt whatever) in it. It has closer to 10 or 12 depending on the drink. When you steam ( stretch) milk you incorporate air and it can up to double in volume. A good bit of it is air and doesn't need to be counted. Keep this in mind if you log your meals.
    The exception to the milk stretching is almond and coconut milk ( especially coconut). They lack the fat and proteins to stretch as much as dairy. Almond ( typically, depending on your barista's skill) stretches about 1/3 and coconut is about 1/4.
    If you really miss your mocha latte and are totally bummed out that you can't have chocolate syrup, most places have unsweetened cocoa powder somewhere. Have them add a half a tablespoon ( small/12oz drink) to 1.5 tablespoons (20oz/large) of unsweetened cocoa powder to two ounces of steamed milk. It has to be hot steamed milk or the cocoa powder won't mix in. Then add however many pumps of sugar free vanilla syrup (to your taste preference) and mix it in. Add this mixture to the espresso shot, mix), and then add whatever other steamed dairy/alt dairy you want to use. Bonus points to your barista if they offer to add a bit of cinnamon. This balances the flavor of the espresso and cocoa powder and is really yummy.
    I hope this helps some of you out next time you hit up your favorite coffee shop!

    My favorite keto coffee shop drink is iced coffee with extra heavy cream and 6shots of sugar free vanilla. (I dont like my coffee to taste too much like coffee)

  3. veterinarygopher

    I switched to an americano with a splash of cream and some Splenda. I love my espresso but didn't want the calories from a latte or breve.

3 Supplements To Jumpstart Ketosis

For some, adding supplements may make the ketogenic transition easier, or may even improve tolerance to certain foods. Here are 3 supplements that can help you kick start ketosis, improve blood sugar control, and fat digestion. Supplemental medium-chain triglycerides oil is the ketotic dieters best kept secret. The short and medium length fats can directly enter the mitochondria sparing precious cellular energy transport (ATP). Supplementation with MCT oil allows for a very biochemically efficient means to produce ketones. Longer chain fats, such as those found in omega-3s, require multi-step enzymatic conversion and are less efficiently converted to ketones despite having other health promoting properties. MCT oil is neutrally flavored, or available in a coconut flavor which can easily be added to a high fat smoothie. Dr. C sneaks plain MCT oil into butter coffee and drizzled over vegetables. Coconut oil is a source of MCTs but is not as well absorbed as the emulsified, highly concentrated supplemental forms. MCT oil can be cooked with due to its high smoke point. Use it liberally to boost your total fat content and stimulate nutritional ketosis on your very low carbohydrate diet Continue reading >>

    Hello everyone! I just checked my ketones a little while ago after I returned from my 3.5 mile walk to discover my ketosis level is back down to pink, or "small" as it calls it on the chart. I admit I haven't checked for well over a week, maybe two, so I've no clue if the ketones were higher within the last two weeks or not. The time I cheated was over three weeks ago and I felt the results as well as witnessed them on my test strip. And I figured out what it was I consumed to put me there and appropriatley got back on track and my energy levels went up again a couple of days later. In the last few days I've kept pretty good track of my carb intake and it remains around 19-20 per day. I still have plenty of energy, though. That's what puzzles me.........I still have lots of energy all day long, but the ketone density is down?? I was really excited a few weeks ago during induction to see the test strip at almost the darkest purple. Can anyone explain this phenomenon to me? I admit I really need to educate myself more on the Atkins site, also.

  2. spydermary

    The color of the strip does not matter, as long as there are some ketones present. A darker color does NOT mean that you are burning more fat than a lighter color. If you drink a lot of water your urine will be diluted and the strip will be more pink, not purple.
    I have only once had a purple color and it was first thing in the AM. Mine are usually small or medium and I have lost 20lbs in about 6 weeks.

  3. The3Macks

    Thank you, so much spydermary!! That makes me feel a lot better....... I am drinking much more water these days, and that's another goal I've achieved! Maybe I should try testing first thing in the morning and see if I have similar results as you have.
    Adorable baby you have in the photo!

Three Supplements That Enhance Ketosis

Low-carb, high-fat diets owe much of their popularity and effectiveness to the fact that they place a greater emphasis on unprocessed whole foods. In addition to enjoying more flavorful meals, dieters are able to obtain good sources of important nutrients directly from food sources, like certain vitamins, which are more bioavailable in fats. As a result, this reduces the need to supplement when consuming low-carb, high-fat diets. Having said that, there are certain supplements that can enhance the effects of low-carb, high-fat diets by enhancing the positive effects of ketosis. Omega-3 fatty acids can help enhance the effects of a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet by helping increase insulin sensitivity and reducing inflammation. Another major benefit of omega-3s is that they can help balance out your intake of omega-6s. When someones eating a high-fat diet, its ideal that their saturated fat sources be grass-fed if theyre from animal sources. Otherwise, commercially farmed animal products typically have higher omega-6 to omega-3 ratios. Fortunately, by supplementing with omega-3s, youre able to help counteract some of this effect.

    Hi everyone, I have to start off by saying that I was on ideal protein 2 years ago and lost 40 lbs, and after that I made a few unsucessfull tries (after I gained about 15 lbs) but that just made me more frustrated and made me gain all the weight back. Now I am more motivated than ever before, but I am not losing as fast as I did before! I am not on ideal protein(cant afford it this time) but still in a low carb diet, and walking almost everyday for about 2 hours and a little bit of strenght, which I though it would help me speed up the process but it isnt, I am on ketosis since day 3 and only lost 3bs the first time I did low carb with the same weight I lost 9lbs the first week! what is wrong with me now?

  2. ValRock
