What are some common myths about the keto diet?
Myths about keto include the idea that it's all about eating excessive amounts of fat or that it's harmful for your heart. Research and expert advice can help dispel these myths.
What is the role of fiber on a keto diet?
Fiber is important for digestion and gut health. While carbs from fiber are counted, they have a minimal impact on blood sugar and can be subtracted from total carbs.
What's the difference between total carbs and net carbs?
Total carbs include all types of carbohydrates, while net carbs subtract fiber and certain sugar alcohols. Net carbs are often used in keto diets to gauge carb intake.
Are energy drinks suitable for a keto diet?
Most energy drinks contain added sugars or high-carb ingredients. Look for options that are sugar-free and have minimal carbs.
