To stay in a state of ketosis it is recommended to stay under 20 grams of carbs per day. Choose from the Green List and try and include some variety into your meals. There is still a wide variety of foods to choose from.
It is quite simply subtracting the fibre and sugar alcohols from the total carbohydrates. For us Aussies net carbs are calculated on all Australian nutritional panels.
To reach ketosis and stay there it is recommended to stay under 20-30g of net carbs. This can differ for some of us, so you can test and trial your limits. As a rule I personally just stick to under the 20g net carbs and maintain ketosis.
Ketosis is a metabolic process where the liver produces chemicals called ketones. Ketone bodies travel to the brain and are then used as our main source of energy.
Our bodies have two sources of energy; glucose (sugar) and fat. When we eat a diet that is high in carbs our bodies default function is to burn the glucose as energy to fuel our body. Any excess glucose is then stored as fat, and we all know how that ends.
When we significantly reduce the amount of carbs in out diet our body will switch to burning fat for energy. Once our body makes the switch we are then in a state of ketosis.
