Net Carbs in Non Alcoholic Drinks for Keto
This is a list of common drinks you will run into. If you are in Malaysia at a roadside stand and they are offering a drink you have never heard of?… I can’t help you.
The carb content is figured as per 100 grams, or about 3 ½” ounces. Net carbs are total carbs minus fiber. Fiber is counted as carbs, but doesn’t really absorb in the body.
Note: If you are ever stuck at a certain weight and you can’t lose anymore, try counting your carbs as total carbs and not net carbs. This will lower your carb count even more and can often break a weight loss stall.
There are items on here that are not great for keto, like fruits and milk. You might think you could still eat just one or two sips, as long as your total carbs stay in the lane.
However, anything sugary, including sweet fruit, will tend to trigger your body’s insulin response. For that reason, it’s probably best to stay away from sugary items and milk, even if it’s within the total carb limit. (Heavy cream and cheese are OK. Only plain milk has the sugars)
This is a generalized guide of net carbs in foods. It’s an approximation as each individual drink will vary in carb content, depending on how it was made, etc.
