(The Top 5 Keto Drinks to Help Maintain Ketosis.)
Keto Drinks to Maintain Ketosis
Many people think the Keto Diet is difficult, but I’ve done it (plus my own modified version of it) many times and kept the weight off.
A lot of the Keto Diet information you read does not include what you can drink while on the diet.
So, I get asked this question a lot.
Keeping hydrated and cutting sugar is something that everyone should aim for each day.
Drinks to Avoid on the Keto Diet:
Fruit Juice (too much sugar)
Soda (obviously, full of sugar)
Milk (high in carbs)
Alcohol (if you must, limit to spirits or one small glass of wine)
Diet Drinks (limit – may negatively affect blood glucose).
5 Drinks You Can Have on the Keto Diet:
It’s SO important to drink water, no matter what phase of life you are in.
I add ice and fill-up my large, Yeti cup with water and sip it throughout the day.
Drinking water also helps to flush out toxins in your body, which can boost skin health.
Additionally, water helps to improve your mood and fight fatigue.
Keto Tip: If you have keto flu or a headache, add a sprinkle of salt to your water.
2) Tea is another good option – just don’t add sugar.
I have a Keurig and the green tea pods to go with it.
I like to have one cup of tea in the afternoon and one cup at night.
If you do this, make sure the evening tea is a caffeine-free blend, so it doesn’t keep you awake.
3) Coffee (my favorite!)
Of course, you can’t add sugar, but you can add unsweetened heavy cream, which gives coffee a nice flavor and consistency.
The best way to drink coffee on the Keto Diet is to have it plain, or black.
This way, it’s calorie-free, and you can get a nice caffeine-kick to start your day.
Again, I use my Keurig and the Keurig coffee pods and limit it to one cup each morning.
4) Nut Milks which are Unsweetened
Some nut milks, like almond milk or coconut milk, are good drink choices.
They are very low in carbs (read the labels), and have vitamins and minerals to help you meet your daily quotas.
My husband likes to add almond milk in with his daily protein powder and blend with ice.
This helps keep him full throughout most of the day (he likes to do intermittent fasting).
5) Bone Broth (low-sodium kind)
Though this is not my favorite, some people really like to sip on a warm cup of bone broth.
I can see how it would be comforting, like soup.
On average, one cup of bone broth contains less than 50 calories.
Top 5 Keto Drinks
Okay, there you have it!
So, when you are planning out your grocery list for the week, don’t forget these keto-friendly drink options.
Sometimes, we get super focused on our eating plan and forget about everything else.
But, you need to consider the drinks going into your body as well.
For both, too much sugar consumed can easily blow your low-carb total for the day.
If you stick to the above keto drink choices, they should help you to have success on your Keto journey! : )
Good Luck to You!
