Welcome to another video in the KNOWLEDGE
series from Your Keto Site.com. Today’s video is about dairy and keto diet. Questions answered in the video are. Is Dairy allowed on Keto?
if yes, then how much and in what form? Also, In the description of this video,
I have a free keto recipe book for you. It’s yours to keep! If you are watching this video, then you already
know that a keto diet involves limiting one’s carbohydrate intake and replacing high carb
foods with healthy complex carbs and fats. Reducing carbs and increasing good fats in
the food, keeps your body in a state of ketosis. Ketosis makes your body more efficient in
converting stored fats into energy. I am assuming that, by now, you have already
eliminated many foods which are high in carbohydrates. You may have also minimized the consumption
of fruits and grains. Even after limiting carbs in your diet, you
may still be wondering about the option of including milk and dairy products in your
keto diet. Since the dairy products are made up of fats
and protein, many of us wonder, if they are allowed on the ketogenic diet? Can you consume milk or dairy in your Keto
diet? Other than milk; butter, cheese, yoghurt and
ice-creams are also dairies. There are 12 grams of carbs in a cup of milk. So, consuming only one cup of milk will not
take you out of ketosis. However, you will need to track how these
additional carbs impact your overall macros. Your daily intake cannot go beyond your carb
allowance due to this glass of milk. You may have to review or track your foods
for the day and see if your calculations leave scope for a cup of milk or not. In other words, one needs to be careful! Assuming that your daily carb allowance is
20 grams, you can understand how just two cups of milk is enough to get your body out
of ketosis. However, the fact remains that milk is nutritious. Milk contains minerals, proteins, fat, vitamins
and essential amino acids. You also have to remember that milk contains
the ketogenic diet’s biggest nemesis: carbohydrate. The option of milk substitutes. Even if you love milk, the key to maintaining
your keto diet plan is to choose milk with the lowest carb content. A practical solution is to replace milk with
‘milk alternatives’. The news may not be what you want to hear,
especially if you love dairy. But, perhaps it’s time to consider the option
of milk alternatives. As per the USDA database, some of the best
options are: Flax Milk. This milk has no cholesterol or lactose. Since flax milk is nut-free, it is a good
alternative for people with allergies. A cup of flaxseed milk contains only one gram
of net carbs. This is a zero sugar milk substitute high
in omega3s and vitamins. Flax milk is among the more expensive milk
substitute. Coconut Milk. This opaque creamy liquid has only one gram
of carbohydrate and contains lots of vitamin C and E.
Coconut milk has no sugar and has a high content of saturated fat. This milk is also a safe substitute for those
with nut allergies. Coconut milk is also preferred by vegans and
those who are lactose intolerant. Hemp Milk. This gluten-free milk is made from hemp seeds
and is rich in high-quality plant protein. Hemp milk is also high in essential fatty
acids. It has zero sugar content and has only one
gram of carbohydrates. Compared to other low-carbohydrate milk substitutes,
hemp milk is expensive. Cashew Milk. This is the thickest and creamiest milk substitute. It has a high-fat content which helps to ward
off hunger cravings. Cashew milk contains more calcium than other
milk alternatives. Almond Milk. This is the closest like for like replacement
for cow’s milk. Almond milk naturally does not have any calcium
in it, but most commercial almond milk has added calcium in them. One cup of almond milk has only about one
gram of carbs in them. Ketogenic recipes of icecreams and smoothies
can also use almond milk instead of dairy milk. Other Dairy Products. You can have a few dairy products in moderation
and still follow a keto diet plan! Few examples of low carb dairy products. Heavy Cream. Compared to 12grams of carbs in a cup of milk,
heavy cream contains only 7 grams of carb. Heavy cream is a good substitute for milk
in coffee. However, replacing milk with heavy cream will
increase your overall calories consumed, as heavy cream is much higher in calories than
milk. Can I have cheese on keto? One can certainly eat cheese. Many kinds of cheese are suitable. Cheese is about 75% fat and 25% protein, and
many contain almost no carbs at all. Can I eat Yoghurt on keto? Yoghurts without whey, such as Greek Yogurt
have low carbohydrate content, and you may have them in a keto diet. Now, you are aware of carb content in milk
and dairy. It’s up to you how much or in what form
you consume. You don’t have to eliminate dairy. It is certainly allowed. But, Like any other food, eating your dairy
products in moderation is the key. If you like to see more such videos; do subscribe
