How many carbohydrates are allowed on keto?

On average, it is recommended to consume between 20 and a maximum of 30 grams of carbohydrates to achieve and maintain ketosis. However, the ideal amount varies from person to person, depending on factors such as:

– How active you are
– How tall you are
– How much you weigh
– How quickly your blood sugar responds and how your metabolism functions

Can you eat keto forever?

Absolutely, and we highly recommend it! It’s so good and healthy for your body in every way, so it would be a shame to go back to making poorer choices, wouldn’t it?

Do you have to eat keto forever?

No, you don’t have to, but it is recommended. Eating keto has so many health benefits, and there’s a reason you started keto in the first place, right? What do you think will happen if you go back to the way you were eating before? That’s right… You’ll eventually end up back where you were when you decided things needed to change.

Is there an age limit for keto?

No, ketogenic eating is suitable for all ages and even recommended. You can read more about ketogenic eating for children here.

What can you eat on a ketogenic diet?

Especially when you’re just starting to explore a ketogenic lifestyle, it can be overwhelming, and it may seem like you can hardly eat anything anymore. Many things that make up your daily diet now won’t be part of your keto diet. However, believe me, there are plenty of foods that are suitable for keto. Personally, I’ve never had such a varied diet until I discovered keto. You can read about what you can eat here.

Can you eat as much as you want?

Yes and no.

Yes: Most people will find that a diet rich in fats and proteins and low in carbohydrates will make them feel full faster than a high-carb diet. As a result, you probably won’t feel like you have to eat less than you want to achieve results. In fact, you might feel full more quickly than you exceed your nutritional needs. This will prevent you from feeling hungry and give you the feeling that you can eat unlimited amounts (provided the ratios and the maximum number of carbohydrates are correct; otherwise, you’ll go out of ketosis).

No: If you’re at your desired weight, you don’t need to worry too much about the quantities you eat, as long as the ratios of fats/proteins/carbohydrates are correct, and you don’t exceed the recommended maximum number of carbohydrates (as this will take you out of ketosis). However, if you want to lose weight, the key is still not to eat more than you burn. Completely stuffing yourself without limits is not advisable, but as explained in the “Yes” section, this probably won’t feel like a restriction.

Do you have to buy a cookbook?

No, not at all. In addition to the recipes that are freely available on my website and shared in our Facebook group, you can certainly create delicious dishes and meals on your own without the need for a cookbook. However, using a good cookbook can help you consistently prepare tasty dishes that align with your ketogenic lifestyle without having to think about it yourself. Additionally, in my cookbooks, the nutritional values are already calculated for you, making it easy to create a weekly menu that matches your dietary needs. So, while it’s not necessary, having a good ketogenic cookbook on hand can be very helpful.


Can you follow the keto diet while taking medication?

In principle, you can follow the ketogenic diet while taking medication, and in many cases, it is even recommended. 😉 However, it’s important to note that food can have a significant impact on the medication you require. For certain medications, you may find that you need less of them after a short period (or sometimes none at all), such as in the case of type 2 diabetes.

If you are taking specific medication and have doubts about how the ketogenic diet may affect it, it’s always a good idea to consult your treating physician or nurse. Explain that you want to start a ketogenic diet and what it entails, and they can assess whether it will have an impact and, if so, what adjustments you may need to make to your medication or treatment plan.
