31 Easy Keto Food Swaps. Diet crazes sweep the nation, and one is becoming really popular lately: the Ketogenic diet. It’s a type of diet that completely changes and goes against modern health standards. Rather than low fat, this diet encourages people to consume large amounts of fat while also limiting carbs. Unlike some other low-carb diets, the Keto diet limits the number of carbs a person can eat per day to 20 net carbs, which are the number of total carbs minus fiber and sugar alcohols.
The diet can be difficult for some since it restricts all bread, pasta, and sugars. It even restricts dieters from eating natural sugars like what can be found in apples, oranges, and other types of fruit.
People are using this diet to lose weight, and even some celebrities have managed to lose large amounts of weight. Many people have even claimed that it’s helped them manage (or get rid of) diabetes, epilepsy, metabolic syndrome, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), and obesity.
It’s no surprise that it’s hard for some to stay on Keto, but it becomes simpler when they learn what to use in place of regular foods. Most have may have already heard that zucchini noodles (zoodles) can be used in place of pasta, but there are tons of other options, so sandwiches and sweet foods aren’t completely off the table.
These are five easy swaps to replace bread, milk, breadcrumbs, sugar, and potatoes. It may require a bit more work (in some cases), but it’s pretty easy.
