13. Unsweetened Coffee and Tea
Both coffee and tea are carb-free beverages that are suitable for a ketogenic lifestyle. Caffeine can boost metabolism and improve alertness, physical performance, and overall mood. Drinking tea and coffee in moderation can even help lower the risk of diabetes. Avoid sweet flavorings, which contain a lot of carbohydrates. Some heavy cream is okay, but any light variations probably use non-fat milk.
14. Dark Chocolate
To satisfy a sweet tooth on the keto diet, people can turn to dark chocolate, which contains antioxidants and flavanols that fight free radicals, may help keep the arteries healthy, and lower blood pressure. Dark chocolate could also reduce chances of heart disease. It is important to read the labels. Dark chocolate that contains at least 70 percent cocoa solids is suitable for maintaining ketosis. Depending on the brand, a 1-ounce serving of unsweetened dark chocolate that is 100 percent cocoa has between 4.5 and 7 grams of net carbs. Snacks with 70 percent pure cocoa can contain 10 grams of net carbohydrates.
