    What veggies interupt Keto?


    Do peas interrupt keto? I know that carrots do, but I was curious if peas green beans or corn do.

    Corn is a grain so I am pretty sure that doesn't work. I would think that peas would be off limits since they tend to be a little higher on the sugar content.

    Interesting that peas have 4 grams protein per serving though

    From c-k-d.com

    These are good
    Low-Carb Vegetables: Peppers, Mushrooms, Celery, Cucumber, Lettuce, Romaine Lettuce, Radishes, Bok Choy, Parsley
    Low-Moderate Carb Vegetables: Artichoke, Asparagus, Snow Peas, Spinach, Broccoli, Spaghetti Squash, Eggplant, Brussel Sprouts, Tomato, Cabbage, Turnips, Onion, Zucchini, Cauliflower
    Although I have my doubts about tomato's.

    From the unacceptable link they also say this
    *Do not eat nuts or seeds in large amounts, as they often have too much carbohydrates. Foods that combine protein and carbohydrates, such as chickpeas, kidney beans and other legumes, are not permitted.
    I constantly snacked on smoked almonds and pistachios on the ckd and it never kicked me out.

    When I did keto diets I lived by the forums at c-k-d.com and fitday.com. Just search for the food type and check out its' macro breakdowns - that'll help you determine if its going to be good or not.

    Fitday says that 1 cup of cooked grean beans have 9.86 grams of carbs and 4 grams of dietary fiber which is about 5 grams of net carbs. I wouldn't eat them, I was always shooting for 20g of carbs max in a day (not counting post workout).

    Asparagus and spinach salads will become your friend

    For me that is the hardest part about the keto diet, I can put away some spuds. I have been meaning to start one again, but this time I am gonna try a tkd instead of the cdk. I always screw the pooch with the ckd weekend refeed - it just becomes a cheat fest.
