Maya, I made this and it’s AMAZING! In the crust, which I reduced to less than half (just to reduce overall carbs), I used some ground pecans, almond flour and hazelnut flour. oh MY! I don’t feel one ounce of guilt eating this and thanks to you and all your recipes, I’m SO NOT DEPRIVED. I’m a foodie so I love to cook. You have made my Keto way of life a huge pleasure. I only come here for recipes cuz YOU GOT IT GOIN ON!!! Oh and p.s my picky hubby absolutely loved it too. I have to share even though I reallllllly don’t want to!!!!
Chocolate and cocoa contain moderate to high amounts of oxalate,[79][80] which may increase someone's risk for kidney stones.[81] During cultivation and production, chocolate may absorb the heavy metal lead from the environment,[82] but the total amounts typically eaten are less than the tolerable daily limit for lead consumption, according to a World Health Organization report from 2010.[83] However, reports from 2014 indicate that "chocolate might be a significant source" of lead ingestion for children if consumption is high,[84][85] and "one 10 g cube of dark chocolate may contain as much as 20% of the daily lead oral limit."[84]
"Meat is a high-quality, complete protein," Christy Brissette, M.S., R.D., president of 80 Twenty Nutrition, tells MensHealth.com. This means that in addition to protein's power to keep you full, it's got all nine essential amino acids you need in your diet. "Vitamin B12 is another nutrient found in meat that plays a key role in energy production and digestion," Brissette adds.
I give 4 stars for the effort to make something good for the diabetes patients.The only thing I did not like at this product is that the sweetness is way TOO strong. These is a problem with most of the American sweet products. I just want to remind to the Americans that the sweet products should have more taste/flavor and less of an avalanche of sugar. This product is a dedicated diabetic friendly product , so, in my opinion, the sugary taste must be diluted/suggested. We need to re-learn from other cultures, particularly from Europeans, how the sweets suppose to be; not aggressive, more like suggested/guessed sweet, and , evidently , much more healthier.The big scale producers might use a scale of sweetness, lets say from 1 to 10 (lets say scale 10 for over 25g sugar per serving), so the customers could make their choice also! Anyway , thanks diabeticfriendly.com.
Is the Stevia a necessary component to making the dish work or is it just an extra sweetener to coincide with the Erythritol? We’ve tried several versions of Stevia, and I just can’t seem to find my way past the after-taste, even in small amounts. I’ve been reading that it’s used to counter something about the Erythritol, but I wasn’t sure if that was the case here (and honestly have been too shy to ask anyone else lol).

Super low carb or Carb free are the only diet that worked me and it was HARD…I became a raging beast during the 1st 2 weeks. But for 3 months straight, I lost about 30lbs. Unfortunately my weight all came back and then some when I started going back to school and eating carbs again due to stress and lack of prepping ahead of time. Now I definitely want to go back and stay low carb as much as possible. Reading this is helping to motivate me 🙂 thank you.
For many people, when trying to lose weight, the answer seems obvious: eat less. Less food means fewer calories, which in turn means less weight, right? But that's not always true. Depending on what you're eating, it's very possible that even if, for example, you skip a meal, you're still making up those calories via snacks or other meals. Further, when your body isn't getting enough calories, it can go into starvation mode.
Another mineral you may want to supplement is potassium. While there is no concrete evidence that a dramatic potassium loss occurs on a low-carb regimen, Sondike says to ensure against problems he recommends patients use Morton's Light Salt -- a potassium chloride product that he says can add back any of this important mineral that's lost. Eating a few almonds is also a good way to supplement this mineral without adding carbs to your diet.
Hi Arti! Great question. It depends on where you are, but the answer is probably yes. If you’re not in the US, the substance you call essence is what we call extract: it’s a liquid that is made from vanilla beans and alcohol. If that’s what you have, regardless of the name, go for it! Just don’t use anything that is made using imitation flavors. Hope this helps!
I’m so excited about this recipe! It is hard to find gluten and sugar free in the same recipe sometimes. My only question is: Is there a way to make this dairy free as well? I’m trying to think of what would be a good dairy free substitute for Greek yogurt. I’ve seen some dairy free yogurts at the store, but they aren’t sugar free. I’m following a gluten/sugar free diet, but both my daughter and my son need dairy free, and if I made a cake, they would want to have some. As often as I make cakes and sweets for the rest of the family and I don’t get to eat them, it would just not work to make a cake that some of them couldn’t eat. I thank you and applaude you for your recipes and your enthusiasm for finding recipes for everyone!

A low-carbohydrate diet has been found to reduce endurance capacity for intense exercise efforts, and depleted muscle glycogen following such efforts is only slowly replenished if a low-carbohydrate diet is taken.[38] Inadequate carbohydrate intake during athletic training causes metabolic acidosis, which may be responsible for the impaired performance which has been observed.[38]

Hi Gigi, Low carb and keto is about the balance of macronutrients eaten (fat, protein and carbs), not specifically meat or lack thereof. Most people on keto do eat meat, though some people do vegetarian keto. Fat is actually necessary for many body processes. There is no issue for the kidneys with a high fat diet, but if you eat too much protein that isn’t great for the kidneys. It’s a common misconception that keto is high protein (it isn’t). Keto is great for diabetics as it naturally helps stabilize insulin. All of this being said, please know I’m not a doctor and you should consult your doctor on any medical questions or before starting any diet. If you have more questions that aren’t medical questions, I recommend our low carb & keto support group here.
It is important to harvest the pods when they are fully ripe, because if the pod is unripe, the beans will have a low cocoa butter content, or sugars in the white pulp will be insufficient for fermentation, resulting in a weak flavor. After fermentation, the beans must be quickly dried to prevent mold growth. Climate and weather permitting, this is done by spreading the beans out in the sun from five to seven days.[54]
The penultimate process is called conching. A conche is a container filled with metal beads, which act as grinders. The refined and blended chocolate mass is kept in a liquid state by frictional heat. Chocolate prior to conching has an uneven and gritty texture. The conching process produces cocoa and sugar particles smaller than the tongue can detect, hence the smooth feel in the mouth. The length of the conching process determines the final smoothness and quality of the chocolate. High-quality chocolate is conched for about 72 hours, and lesser grades about four to six hours. After the process is complete, the chocolate mass is stored in tanks heated to about 45 to 50 °C (113 to 122 °F) until final processing.[62]
But what was learned from the earlier two Thai action movies, was that it was no longer necessary to repeat the action from different camera angles. This would stem from confidence in showing off the stunts from a single viewpoint, and not feel sore from not being able to cover it from multiple angles. And Chocolate had some really nice buildup in the complexity of these set action pieces. It teases with what's over the horizon starting from a few thugs at a street performance, and sets up carefully crafted action sequences for our heroine to flit from one to another, each being an excuse to dispatch goon after goon coming at her.

One thing to consider when you're shopping for sugar-free dark chocolate is the percentage of cacao in your chocolate. True dark chocolate products contain anywhere from 70 to 100 percent cacao, and the higher that number is, the richer and more bitter the chocolate will taste. Luckily, most sugar-free dark chocolates are sweetened with stevia and other sugar alternatives that help offset the bitterness of a high percentage of cacao.
White rice is the main side dish made in Brazil. This is the way my mom would make it and taught my sister and I. What makes this so different is that we fry it in oil with minced onion and garlic before adding water. You can also use part water, part chicken broth. The secret is to not let it overcook because it should come out loose and not sticky.

Studies have shown that people losing weight with a low-carbohydrate diet, compared to a low-fat diet, have very slightly more weight loss initially, equivalent to approximately 100kcal/day, but that the advantage diminishes over time and is ultimately insignificant.[6] The Endocrine Society state that "when calorie intake is held constant [...] body-fat accumulation does not appear to be affected by even very pronounced changes in the amount of fat vs carbohydrate in the diet."[6]
I have taken my cake out of the oven, I used pyure sweetner and only used 1 cup of it instead of 1 1/3 cup like it said originally, I wish I had read all the suggestions because I would have added that little bit extra almond flour like you suggested. The batter still wasn’t too runny so I figured it would work. I added a couple of drops of orange flavoring and a pinch of salt. I batter was so good I was tempted to eat a little extra batter My springdoem pan did leak but I am not too worried about that. I did need to leave the cake in 10 extra minutes as it wasn’t completely cooked at 30 minutes. I’m so excited to try this, I’ll come back later and give you my opinion on taste

With some two million children involved in the farming of cocoa in West Africa, child slavery and trafficking were major concerns in 2018.[5][6] However, international attempts to improve conditions for children were failing because of persistent poverty, absence of schools, increasing world cocoa demand, more intensive farming of cocoa, and continued exploitation of child labor.[5]

They used to moan and complain there are no cereals in the house, but they have learned to cook their own breakfasts and look for what ingredients we have rather than reach for a box of cornflakes
Hi. I made this recipe using a half cup cocoa powder, a quarter cup powdered icing Natvia (stevia erythritol) and cocoa butter I had in the fridge for over a year! :O. I also added a quarter cup chopped Brazil’s as they are so low carb. I wasn’t expecting much but it was absolutely fabulous!! My whole family scoffed the lot and they are not even Keto! They are just like Ferrero Rocher without the wafer. Divine. Thank you.
"An acute bout of high-intensity exercise distributes blood away from the stomach and intestines due to the need for greater circulation of blood to the muscles, which may be a factor involved in appetite suppression. This does not occur with less demanding exercise," David Stensel, a professor of exercise metabolism at Loughborough University in Leicestershire, England, told Greatist.

These non-GMO, 100 percent vegan dark chocolate chips melt easily in the oven (or, let's be real, your mouth) and are the perfect way to sweeten up just about any desert. Reviewers love this brand of chips for both taste and health benefits, with one person raving that these are these are the best chips they've ever found. They write, "The taste is beyond amazing especially for anyone who love[s] dark chocolate like I do. I started on a ketogenic diet for health reasons and was afraid that I would never be able to enjoy chocolate again unless I did it myself (time consuming). I'm so happy that there is a brand of chocolate chips I could buy that tastes fantastic." For $30, you'll get four packs of these unsweetened chips, which each hold 9 ounces of chocolate.

When weight loss stalls something needs to change. Firstly it could be that you are near your goal weight and so you have found a natural balance, secondly other things might be creeping back in that you have forgotten to count (for example too many creamy coffees or an extra glass of wine). Take a look at how much you are eating for breakfast and dinner, are they too big and actually the same size as 3 meals just eaten in 2? Nuts, dairy and alcohol are generally the biggest culprits in stalling weight loss. Sometimes we just have to remind ourselves of the health benefits of LCHF rather than the weight loss. It will happen, albeit slower than we would wish. For me it is about no longer counting anything, no longer being on the sugar roller coaster, improved nutrition and no longer having any guilt surrounding every meal or snack. Good luck and be patient my friend 🙂
On the diet, you can get frozen and ready-to-eat South Beach Diet meals, along with some meals you make on your own. They also encourage you to buy South Beach Diet–branded snacks. The upside is that they’ll tell you what to eat all day and there’s little cooking involved (great if you hate your kitchen); the downside is that you have to buy your food through them, and the choices can become limiting. Plus, when you’re buying packaged foods, you’re not getting the full nutritional benefit you would from eating whole foods.
Hi Mel, Assuming that your ranch dressing doesn’t have sugar added, you don’t need to worry too much about limiting it, but within reason. This is my homemade ranch dressing recipe, which has 0.9g net carbs per 2-tbsp serving. It would be hard to find a store bought one with much less than that, even though some round anything less than 1g down to 0g, which isn’t truly accurate. Also, keep in mind that if weight loss is your goal, some people find that too much dairy can cause a stall. Finally, make sure you aren’t using all your “available” carbs on ranch dressing – have it with some low carb veggies!
Some people on a keto or low carb diet choose to count total carbs instead of net carbs. This makes it more difficult to fit in more leafy greens and low carb vegetables (which are filled with fiber), so you should only try that if you don’t get results with a net carb method. And, start with reducing sugar alcohols and low carb treats before deciding to do a “total carbs” method.
Made this for my church Christmas Potluck. Flavors were amazing but dish was a soupy mess, even after refrigerating for almost 24hrs. If I make again, i will not add almond milk to pudding and make 1.5-2x more of the whipped cream. I didn’t have enough with the recipe amount and had to run to store for more heavy whipping cream. Otherwise, it’s a wonderful recipe! Thanks so much for posting and hope the feedback helpful.
I wish I’d read through the comments before making this. I substituted plain Trader Joe’s liquid stevia for the Sweetleaf vanilla liquid stevia. Otherwise, I followed all ingredients and instructions exactly, but it turned out grainy and bitter. I then added a drop of peppermint essential oil hoping to redeem to a better flavor, but it was no help. It might be super helpful if the recipe instructions indicated clearly to use no substitutions for brands or types of stevia.
Maya, I made this and it’s AMAZING! In the crust, which I reduced to less than half (just to reduce overall carbs), I used some ground pecans, almond flour and hazelnut flour. oh MY!

I would agree with many, but not all of your points. “Fat and carbs don’t make us fat. It’s only processed fat (vegetable oil) and processed carbs (white flour and added sugar) in processed foods (foods with more than one ingredient) that inherently lead to overeating and weight gain.” I have also said this throughout my website and one of the biggest myths I try to bust is that we are not NO carb we are LOW carb. By removing processed food from our daily diet, we almost become low carb by default. Nutrient dense, low-carb whole foods are encouraged but not to be overdone. Lower carb diets reduce insulin resistance and inflammation. Lower carb diets, with healthy fats, gives a better blood lipid profile and lower TG which is the best predictor of heart health. There are so many benefits from eating nutrient dense lower carb whole foods.
Low-carbohydrate diets are associated with increased mortality, and they can miss out on the health benefits afforded by high-quality carbohydrate such as is found in pulses, fruit and vegetables.[3][4] Disadvantages of the diet might include halitosis, headache and constipation, and in general the potential adverse effects of the diet are under-researched, particularly for more serious possible risks such as for bone health and cancer incidence.[5]

The ketogenic diet is used to treat drug-resistant childhood epilepsy. It has become a fad diet for people attempting to lose weight.[39] Dieters trying this often do not achieve true ketosis as this requires extreme carbohydrate restriction, and maintaining a ketogenic diet is difficult.[39][11] Some diet advocates make misleading claims that the ketogenic diet can treat or prevent cancer.[14]


Hi I’m new to Keto. I have been reading about it, and understanding what to eat and what not to eat. My problem is I’m not sure if I’m doing it correctly. I’m constantly hungry whereas information reads that I will never be hungry. I use fats as required along with topping up with vegetables in my meals yet this does not fill me up. I haven’t experienced the Keto flu and I’ve even put on weight! I have been doing this for about 3 weeks now. Any ideas where I am going wrong.

On this diet, you’ll be led through four phases. First, you’ll focus on foods high in protein, and then add vegetables back in, followed by gradually introducing more carb-containing foods foods, like fruit and whole-grain bread, plus an allowance of two celebration meals per week. In the final phase, you’ll aim to maintain your weight loss results by eating foods from all food groups, supplementing with oat bran, and fitting in fitness daily.
Known as "Dutch cocoa", this machine-pressed chocolate was instrumental in the transformation of chocolate to its solid form when, in 1847, English chocolatier Joseph Fry discovered a way to make chocolate moldable when he mixed the ingredients of cocoa powder and sugar with melted cocoa butter.[27] Subsequently, his chocolate factory, Fry's of Bristol, England, began mass-producing chocolate bars, Fry's Chocolate Cream, launched in 1866, and they became very popular.[30] Milk had sometimes been used as an addition to chocolate beverages since the mid-17th century, but in 1875 Swiss chocolatier Daniel Peter invented milk chocolate by mixing a powdered milk developed by Henri Nestlé with the liquor.[18][24] In 1879, the texture and taste of chocolate was further improved when Rudolphe Lindt invented the conching machine.[33]

And most important, she notes: Her blood sugar is at an all-time low. About a year ago, she went to the ER because her blood sugar levels rose to between 600 and 800 mg/dL — indicating she was at risk of a diabetic coma. But now, her postprandial glucose is between 150 and 200 mg/dL. “My sugars have been on a steady decline since March,” she says. Her A1C — a two- to three-month average of blood sugar levels — also went from 10.4 to 8.7, an improvement, though still in the range for type 2 diabetes, according to according to the ADA.


I was on long acting insulin at 44 units twice daily. Short acting insulin three times daily at 25 units each. It was through the lchf eating changes I was able to get down to 5 units twice daily of the long acting and 3 units of short acting twice daily.Quite a difference in med changes. Cholesterol readings went from over 400 down to little over 200. A1c from over 9 to 7. All in a 30 day period. I had only been doing lchf for 30 days when tested. Lost 13 pounds. Stressful times hit me and started eating again. Just now getting back to lchf eating because I know this works. I need this for myself. I felt better, got around better, was much happier. It took time and constant monitoring to reduce my insulins under medial supervision. Was told to keep doing whatever it was I was doing by my pimary care as well as my endocrinologist.

A small, randomized crossover study published in the Journal of Diabetes Sciences and Technology found that after three months, people who followed a modified, low-carb paleo diet saw greater reductions in their A1C, their triglycerides, their diastolic blood pressure, and their weight than those who followed a traditional diabetes diet. (The approach also increased their levels of LDL, or "good” cholesterol.) The diabetes diet in the study involved consuming no more than 6 g of salt per day, reducing saturated fat and total fat intake, and upping intake of veggies, fiber, whole grains, fruits, and veggies. Compared with the diabetes diet, the paleo diet involved eating less dairy, beans, potatoes, and cereals, and more veggies, fruit, meat, and eggs.

Although chocolate has been eaten since at least 1400 B.C., the way we eat it is a relatively recent invention. Ever taken a bite of unsweetened baking chocolate? Gross. Just try to imagine sipping a hot, frothy drink made of the stuff, maybe with some ground chili peppers for flavor. It's not something I'd look forward to as a treat, but that's how the Mesoamericans were enjoying it.
 But besides the cost of buying healthier chocolate at stores let’s talk about cravings shall we?! Giving in to chocolate cravings can be the biggest downfall when it comes to practicing a healthy lifestyle and/or trying to lose weight. But not indulging in chocolate just because you might lead a sugar free way of life or think you can’t possibly have it now that you need to lose weight, could put someone into depression! The key factor here is not so much enjoying chocolate, but it’s about the kind you are enjoying .
While the oven was on self-clean mode, I ran back to the store and exchanged my springform pan for a new one, bought some more unsweetened chocolate and eggs, and went home to try again. This time I cut the parchment large enough to run it up the sides about 1/2″. I buttered the underside of the parchment before buttering the rest of the pan, poured in the batter, and baked for 30 minutes as the center was too sift at 25 minutes. It only leaked about 1/2 tsp, which is likely the butter from the parchment. I know springform pans aren’t waterproof (or butter-proof in this case), but I’ve never had one leak before. I usually only use them for cheesecake and never line the bottom with parchment.

In this part of the world, there's no dearth of male action heroes, you know, those with real martial arts background. Think Jet Li, Jackie Chan, Donnie Yen, Wu Jing, and closer to home, Tony Jaa.

So Thai director Prachya Pinkaew is probably shrewd enough to identify this golden opportunity, and so introduces us to Yanin Vismistananda in her debut feature Chocolate.


The only adjustment I made to the recipe, was the addition of about a tablespoon of lemon juice to the cream cheese mixture; for just a little bit of tanginess to off-set all the sweetness. This is also how we make 4-Layer Delight back home, so I thought it would work here. I’ve tried it both ways, and the little hint of sourness from the lemon really seems to make it perfect; to me and the wife at least.

Eat fat only until full. Don’t eat any more than you can handle. Sometimes people think they have to eat lots of fat whereas it is really eating the fat that naturally comes with a meal (i.e:not trimming a fatty steak) and adding as much fat as feels right to your meals through sauces and cheese for example. I don’t go our of my way to eat extra fat. If you are still hungry though but don’t feel like the heavy feeling some fat brings, add some coconut cream to your smoothies.
Otherwise, if you can’t find erythritol, I’d probably go with something like Truvia Spoonable. That’s actually a combination of erythritol and stevia, but more common in stores. If you use that, you’d probably need about 2 1/2 teaspoons for the crust, 1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons for the cream cheese layer, 3 1/2 tablespoons for the pudding layer, and 2 1/2 tablespoons for the whipped cream layer. I’d still grind it for finer consistency if you can.
That sounds like a good idea! I also try to avoid gums/thickeners most of the time, but haven’t found a good replacement for pudding. I’ve never tried gelatin though – it might work! I’d start with the same amount and then see if you might need more than the amount of xanthan gum to get it thick enough. Let me know how it goes if you give it a try.
Hi Mylene, my first question will be did you substitute any ingredient in the recipe? If the outside is cooking faster it probably means that the center of the tortillas was thicker in the center. Also another thing could be that you did not squeeze out all the water from the zucchini leaving some moisture in the batter that make it harder to cook. Finally if it is not golden and the outside crisp too fast it could be a too warm oven. Always cook on fan bake mode to ensure that the tortillas cook well evenly. I hope this help! It is a delicious recipe and I make it all the time without any issue so it should work for you too 🙂 See you soon on the blog Mylene.

Severely restricting carbohydrates to less than 0.7 ounces (20 grams) a day can result in a process called ketosis. Ketosis occurs when you don't have enough sugar (glucose) for energy, so your body breaks down stored fat, causing ketones to build up in your body. Side effects from ketosis can include nausea, headache, mental and physical fatigue, and bad breath.
"We found that the type of diet people ate had a major impact on their metabolism. Those on the low-carbohydrate diet burned about 250 calories a day more than those on the high-carbohydrate diet, even though all the groups were the same weight," said Dr. David Ludwig, principal investigator of the study and co-director of the New Balance Foundation Obesity Prevention Center at Boston Children's Hospital.

I'm giving this candy only a 'fair' rating because in spite of being called 'DiabeticFriendly', it spiked my blood glucose up 40 points. I am very careful to check my blood glucose levels after eating anything new (especially anything sweet) because I manage my diabetes with diet alone. These chocolates taste great, look beautiful, arrived before the estimated delivery date and were beautifully presented. However, two pieces spiked my blood glucose as much or more as a regular candy bar would have. Your mileage may vary.... use caution!
Then don’t give up the fruit! Go for it. You sound like a fit and active person within the normal weight range. Generally the advice is to stay off excessive fruit, and high sugar fruit especially if people are overweight or have other health issues, then in that case fruit is not your friend. But with everything, eat within your personal carb limitations and eat to what is appropriate to you. Whole fruit is somewhat self limiting due to the fibre and water anyhow. You obviously have worked out a fabulous routine and it is working, so why change, stick with it Tom and enjoy 🙂
Dark chocolate boasts many added health benefits when compared to your standard milk chocolate bar: It's packed with antioxidants, additional nutrients, and is rich in fiber. But, the best sugar-free dark chocolate takes those health benefits one step further by eliminating artificial sugars, making it a great choice for health-conscious chocolate lovers as well as anyone with diabetes.

This special online-only edition of Exploring takes a closer look at the sweet lure of chocolate. We'll examine the fascinating -- and often misreported -- history of chocolate, follow the chocolate-making process, and take an online visit to a chocolate factory. We'll also look at the science of chocolate, and find out about the latest research into the possible health effects of its consumption. Lastly, we'll explore the somewhat controversial question of why chocolate make us feel so good.
I’m so happy you liked it! I love that you added peanut butter to the cream cheese. I just posted a peanut butter version of this dessert a few weeks ago. If you don’t have the peanut flour for the crust, use this on or the crust from the coconut version. I made a peanut butter pastry cream/pudding for that one. So Good! I’m impressed you did all of the mixing “old school”! My arm would have fallen off! Kudos! Have a nice weekend and thanks for taking the time to comment. -Kim

Is this pure stevia extract? I’ve never tried that, so I’m not sure, actually. Thinking about the recipe, it is the eggs and also the chocolate that bind the cake. The almond flour gives is a slightly cakey (=more fluffy) texture. From that standpoint it should not affect the recipe. You MAY want to add another few tbsp of almond flour to make up for the missing bulk coming from the erythritol. Let us know how it turns out!
Hi Rita, how disappointing! I’m sorry your cake did not turn out. I have never heard of ingredients separating in this recipe. To me it sounds like it may have something to do with the kind of chocolate you used, as this is the main ingredient. Maybe it was not suitable for baking? I’d be really interested to hear what the brand was and what ingredients it has. Cheaper brands use vegetable or palm oils instead of cocoa butter, and they may have caused the separation?
If you want to lose weight, then cut the carbs down until you start dropping. It’s always a balancing act. After decades of Weight Watchers and other crazy diets I now don’t count a single thing. It is the most intuitive way of eating for me for over 3 years now. I pretty much stay at goal weight and still enjoy my red wine, 90% chocolate at weekends and some occassional low carb baking.

Keep up electrolytes. The major electrolytes in our bodies are sodium, potassium and magnesium. Because a low carb diet (especially a keto diet!) reduces the amount of water you store, this can flush out electrolytes and make you feel sick (called “keto flu”). This is temporary, but you can avoid or eliminate it by salting your food liberally, drinking broth (especially bone broth), and eating pickled vegetables. Some people also choose to take supplements for electrolytes, but it’s best to first consult a doctor that understands and supports keto/low carb lifestyles.
