I recently tried the keto diet to test how long it would take to reach ketosis, and it was challenging because I have a sweet tooth.
The keto diet is designed to put the body into a state of ketosis, where you burn fat for fuel rather than carbs.
Carbs are generally limited to under 20-50g a day — for context, an apple contains around 30g.
It took me a few days to actually get my carbs low enough, because even eating too many berries or leafy green vegetables can take you over your carb limit on keto.
However, I found a few snacks that satisfied my cravings while helping me hit the right macros. Here’s what I ate.
