By now, you’re probably familiar with the keto diet — the high-fat, moderate-protein, super-low-carb diet has helped people lose weight, gain energy, and transform their lifestyles. But as popular as the diet is, there are still many misconceptions about it. For starters, many people think you can’t eat any carbs at all in order to get into your body’s fat-burning state of ketosis. In reality, some carbs are allowed: about 50 grams or fewer per day. But what about sugar? Keto dieters have all but eschewed the sweet stuff in favor of calorie-free sweeteners like stevia. Just look at this roundup of keto fat bombs : they’re all sugar-free or incredibly low in sugar. To find out just how much sugar you can eat on the keto diet, we asked Brittanie Volk, PhD, RD, senior clinical and patient engagement specialist at Virta Health, for answers. That means all sources of carbohydrate, including refined sugar, should be limited to as little as possible to avoid the impact carbohydrates can have on blood sugar and insulin levels. So while sugar is a carb and does count toward your 50 grams or fewer a day, you should still limit sugar intake so as not to spike your blood sugar.

Dark chocolate can be added to your breakfast “cereal” such as my recipe for Faux keto oatmeal from KetoDiet, baked goods or yogurt. Look for unsulphured blackstrap molasses from organic sugar and always use with caution. Sorbitol is about 60 percent as sweet as table sugar sucrose and contains about 2. Hi Shonda, I mentioned it in the comments below – search for Truvia. So would the Yacon syrup would a suitable sweetener to use under the diet if our carb intake is very limited?
I haven’t tried it yet but it looks like a good option. Raspberries and blackberries contain 5 grams of carbs per grams, and strawberries contain 6 grams of carbs for the same serving size. When it comes to carbs – yes, peanut butter is fine. The table below shows estimates of net carbs in various sweeteners following a conservative approach of counting net carbs, where all calories are derived from them. Thank you Martina! Now you have better awareness of the names of ingredients that may not fit your low-carb lifestyle.
