Keto dieters don’t really need to spend a fortune on food, but it’s important to know how much to eat in order to meet your goals.
The Food Standards Australia (FSA) recommends that you don “eat no more than 200g of carbohydrate per day, or half of your daily energy requirements.”
The goal of eating this way is to keep blood sugar stable.
If you’re overweight or obese, you’ll probably want to eat more, too.
It’s also important to remember that if you’re diabetic, the body will use glucose to fuel your energy needs.
There’s a little-known but important rule of thumb: If you can’t keep your blood sugar at a steady state, you’re likely to crash.
In other words, if you can keep your glucose levels within a safe range, you can avoid serious complications.
But there’s one caveat: If your blood glucose levels are too high, you may not be able to tolerate your carbs in the first place.
In order to stay keto-adapted, it’s recommended that you limit the amount of carbohydrates you consume.

Keto snacks When it comes to snacks to eat during a keto diet, the food standards guidelines aren’t the only thing that matter.
