How to read nutrition labels for keto

If you are a beginner on the keto diet, one of the most important things you will learn to do is how to read nutrition labels. For the first several weeks on keto, before you put anything into your mouth, you should always read the label first.

Read the ingredients

The first thing you should do is read the ingredients list. The first ingredient in the list represents ingredients with the highest quantity, and so on. Be sure that the ingredients are keto friendly, and watch out for products that contain sugar, flour, wheat and starch. These can some in a variety of different names (for example, dextrose is a carbohydrate).

Check the carb content

Your next task is to calculate the carb content, which many people call “net carbs” by taking the total carbs and subtracting fiber and sugar alcohols. You will be left with the remaining carb count to get your net carbs.

Keto has become a way of life for me, and I feel the need to share it with anyone who is willing to listen! I started my Instagram profile as a way to support myself through my keto and weight loss journey, and to support others who are seeking how to follow a ketogenic diet the right way. Along the way I have greatly improved my health and have helped numerous friends, followers and family members to start a ketogenic lifestyle. It has helped them to lose weight, improve energy, feel great, combat diabetes and more. Helping others learn the keto diet has become my passion!
