Frequently Asked Questions
Is coconut oil a healthy fat for a keto diet?
Yes, coconut oil is rich in medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) which are quickly converted to ketones. It's a popular fat source in keto cooking.
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.
How do I manage constipation on a keto diet?
Drinking plenty of water, increasing fiber intake through non-starchy vegetables, and consuming foods rich in magnesium can help alleviate constipation.
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.
Can I drink alcohol on a keto diet?
Alcohol can be consumed in moderation on a keto diet, but keep in mind that some alcoholic beverages are high in carbs. Stick to options like dry wines or spirits with low-carb mixers.
