Frequently Asked Questions
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.
Is the keto diet recommended for athletes?
The keto diet may work for some athletes, especially endurance athletes, as it promotes fat adaptation. However, high-intensity athletes might require more carbs for performance.
How do I track my progress on a keto diet?
Tracking progress can be done through regular weigh-ins, measurements, and before-and-after photos. Non-scale victories like increased energy and improved mood are also important indicators.
Are cheat days allowed on a keto diet?
Cheat days can disrupt ketosis and slow down your progress. If you choose to have a treat, opt for keto-friendly options to minimize the impact on your carb intake.
How can I manage social situations and dining out on keto?
Inform your hosts or servers about your dietary preferences. Focus on protein and non-starchy veggies when dining out, and make smart choices based on the menu.
