Low-Carb Fats and Sauces – the Best and the Worst
What are the best and the worst fats and sauces on a low-carb diet? It’s an important question, as a low-carb diet needs to be high in fat to be sustainable (here’s why).
Fortunately, there are tons of great options, plus some not-so-good ones. For more details, please check out this visual guide. The lower-carb options are to the left:
Mustard vs. ketchup
Should a low-carber choose mustard or ketchup? Well, if you’re trying to avoid carbs the answer is clear.
Ketchup is candy, mustard isn’t.
Note that store-bought BBQ sauce is loaded with sugar. Those glazed ribs may look nice, but there’s quite a load of sugar on them. Remove to stay low carb. Or decide to eat it, knowing what you’re doing.
Fat is filling, and an amazing flavor enhancer. But how do you get enough of it in your diet? And how much fat should you really eat? Hint: enough to feel satisfied and not hungry.
