Okay, let's talk about coffee… You would not think there was so much to say about coffee, but I have to promise that it is based on the countless questions I answer about this wonderful drink. So here comes all about coffee and Keto. Everything you would like to know and maybe even something you wish I had not said.
YES in capital letters. You can safely drink coffee at Keto. Coffee is virtually carbohydrate-free, except for instant coffee, which actually contains a small amount of carbohydrates, which at one point almost shocked some of my former students. I now tend to say anyway that you can drink as much black coffee as you want on Keto.
I like the idea that we need to get to grips with the broad lines first. You need to eat few carbohydrates and enough protein. These two are important and that is your foundation. Let it fall into place first and afterwards you may worry about an excessive coffee intake.
At Keto, eating a few carbs is your first priority. As few as 20-30 g per. day in the first weeks where the body has to adjust to fat burning. There are very few carbohydrates. From a health and nutritional point of view, it makes the best sense to prioritize using them on vegetables.
