Tip!

These fluffy eggs pair well with many low-carb favorites. Obvious choices are bacon or sausage, but other great options include salmon, avocado, cold cuts and cheese (try cheddar, fresh mozzarella or feta cheese).

And, if you are really hungry (or have extra-large eggs), don’t be shy. Add more butter!

    Is honey ok to sweeten your coffee on Keto?

    Unfortunately not as honey is too high in sugar/carbohydrates. You can see our guide to sweeteners here - https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/keto/sweeteners

    Is there any reason that Greek yogurt is not included as a breakfast alternartive? I make my own Greek yogurt from 3.25% milk and it is delicious. I eat up to half a litre a day sometimes straight; sometimes with a few berries sprinkled on top. As far as I know, it is a keto food. So why is it not recommended here? Too many carbs?

    I tried adding powdered skim milk to make the yogurt thicker, which is does, but was horrified to discover that skim milk power is 46% lactose! The yogurt comes out a bit sweet so i've quit doing that. I tried adding heavy cream to the recipe and the yogurt comes out too runny. Whole milk alone is best.

    Any info you could give on Greek yogurt would be great. I am travelling to Greece this fall and I plan to eat loads of Greek yogurt, if it is keto.

    Also, is Greek yogurt too high in protein? Should I be eating cream cheese instead? (Not the same!)

    Greek yogurt tends to be higher carb and protein without much fat. If you can find a European/Bulgarian style yogurt it tends to have better macro ratios. If you are making yogurt, try using heavy cream instead of skim milk.

    Anyone have stomach issues with all the fat you eat and not having a gallbladder? This seems to be an issue for me.

    You can ask your pharmacist to help you find digestive enzymes if the fats are a problem for you.

    I don't drink soda but I have discovered kombucha, is it ok as a soda replacement?

    You would need to check the carb count. The carbs in it come from sugar, so even if they are low, it could still adversely affect blood sugar.

    I see salmon, bacon etc. as additional options for breakfast, what about sausage. I have a butcher here who makes his own pork sausage without a lot of additives?

    As long as he is not adding sugar, sausage is a great breakfast option.

    These scrambled eggs are great. Using more butter than normal like this recipe calls for made for some perfect eggs.

    We do not have a two week egg challenge. Our free two week challenge is located at this link and is an excellent way to get started with keto.

    If your blood sugar drops too low, it is important to break the fast. Low blood sugar is potentially dangerous.

    Hi
    The recipes shown have servings sizes based on per person without taking into account weight of people doing it . Does this mean that my serving size is the same as someone that weighs more or less than than me. Ie my wife and I are doing this together and don’t weight the same so should our portion sizes be the same?

    These are suggested serving sizes. We recommend eating to hunger. If you find you're naturally hungry for more than one serving, you can make and eat more (keeping an eye on carb count!). If your wife is naturally hungry for less than a serving, that's OK as well.

    I like to add 1 tbsp. of heavy cream to my scrambled eggs and fry them in butter than I top them with cheese. Is this still keto friendly ?

    Yes, heavy cream can definitely be part of a good keto diet. It also helps make fluffier scrambled eggs!

    Am I allowed to eat fruit on a keto diat?
    And I am still confused how one can take off weight when eating heavy creme with cheese and bacon like our recipe from today- Alfredo creme chicken? It was amazingly delicious but that is a lot of calories to take off weight or not?

    With keto, it has to do with keeping the carbs low, not the calories! I am going to provide a couple of links where you can read in more detail.
