It’s no secret that exercise and diet are the keys to good health. And it goes without saying, both take considerable effort to manage. Of the two, diet is probably the easiest place to start because you need food and water to survive, which is why most people first turn to diet plans when thinking about taking back control of their health.
Obviously, we’re going to promote diets with a focus on fiber, but there is one diet in particular that may seemingly run counter to consuming fiber. And that’s the ketogenic diet. Keto is a low carbohydrate, high-fat diet that has become increasingly popular, delivering a number of health benefits to those who subscribe to it. Here’s the potential rub — fiber is a carbohydrate. And for that matter, it’s sometimes difficult for keto dieters to get enough fiber into their diets without getting carbohydrate heavy. But it is important to keep in mind that consuming fiber is extremely important for good health.
So, the question is, how can you stay within the keto diet guidelines and still consume the ideal amount of fiber? You do so by choosing foods that are fiber rich, with low net carbohydrates. Net carbohydrates are the carbohydrates our body absorbs, and we calculate them by subtracting the total amount of dietary fiber from the total amount of carbohydrates. Examples of these foods are avocados, chia seeds, flax seeds, nuts and greens.
