I have been in a ketosis state for 5 months and the results have been Great. Although I have lost quite a bit of weight and feel better, I have been lucky to not fall off the keto wagon due to deceiving labels that Manufacturers use to think a product does not contain sugar. It is astounding how many pseudonyms they use for added sugars. I read labels, but I have been fooled several times into thinking a product is keto-friendly when it is not.
I hope this infographic will help you not to be fooled by the food industry. I printed this list out so that I can take it with me to the grocery store since the list is so long. I use Swerve as my go to sugar for baking and coffee. This sugar-alcohol will not raise your glycemic index and measures just like sugar. Many of my friends prefer monkfruit because it claims to not have a bitter after taste. This a personal preference, so try a few out and see how you feel about each one. Number 1 advice is to read ALL labels.
