What Foods Should You Avoid or Limit on a Keto Diet?

You have probably realized by now that there is plenty of things you can eat in a Keto Diet plan. The main difference between a regular and Keto Diet is the number of carbohydrates you consume. Traditionally, about 45% to 65% of the daily caloric intake is in the form of carbohydrates. On a Keto Diet plan, only about 10% to 20% of the daily caloric intake is in the form of carbohydrates. This means that the body must rely on stored fat for energy, which is known as Ketosis.

So, the types of food you should avoid or limit are those high in carbohydrates. You should also be very careful with foods with a medium-high level of carbs.

First, let’s mention the foods you should obviously avoid at all costs:

  • Soda and fizzy drinks
  • Potato chips, crackers, pretzels
  • Sugary beverages and everything with added sugars
  • Margarine and other types of trans fat

There are also healthy foods that should be avoided in Keto Diets. They are otherwise healthy but eating them will ruin your Ketosis, which is something you don’t want. Here’s the list:

  • Lentils, peas, peanuts, and beans
  • Oatmeal, pasta, rice, and other types of grains
  • Potatoes, corn, peas, and other starchy vegetables
  • Lemons, berries, and limes, if you eat them very frequently
  • High-carb fruits such as bananas and mangoes
