It’s not just the quantity of carbs you have on keto that matters. It’s also the quality of the carbs that matter. In this video, I’m going to cover in detail the types of carbs that you should and shouldn’t have on keto. It’s important to not only consider the amount of sugar in foods but also the carbs and starch.

A few things to keep in mind:
• Fiber will buffer starches and sugar to a certain degree.

• It’s important to consider the amounts of starch in foods and whether or not it’s heated. You don’t want to consume starch that has been heated or processed.

• The more you cook a starch, the higher it is on the glycemic index. For example, a raw potato would be fine. But, cooked potatoes are not keto-friendly.

• Even though you could typically have 50g of carbs per day on keto, you want to consume low-glycemic carbs. You don’t want to consume 50g of actual sugar because it will spike your blood sugar.
