Looking for Keto Friendly Foods ??

If you’re on a ketogenic diet, you probably know that you have to limit your intake of carbohydrates to 25 net grams per day or less. One tablespoon of honey has 17 grams of carbs (mostly from sugar), leaving you without much wiggle room. Plus, eating a tablespoon of honey will likely cause a massive spike in blood sugar and kick you out of ketosis, right? Maybe not!
In this video, I’ll talk about why I’ve been eating up to 70 grams per day of carbs (several times per week) from unpasteurized, raw local honey — 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐭 getting kicked out of ketosis.
What I’ve noticed after eating honey is that my blood sugar spikes but quickly returns to my baseline. In comparison, eating grains (such as wheat) keeps my blood sugar elevated for hours. I’ve also noticed that while consuming honey temporarily lowers my ketone levels, they return to 5 ACEs (0.5 mmol/L) or higher overnight.
My take on “honey on keto” is that as long as you’re metabolically healthy and metabolically flexible, there’s no reason why you should exclude honey from your diet.
However, suppose you started keto to lose weight or to address a metabolic disease, such as diabetes, pre-diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s or cardiovascular disease; in that case, I don’t recommend including honey (or any other high glycemic carbs) in your diet.
