Keto Diet Experiment | Net Carbs | Day 83 Results

Week In Review

Net Carbs in a Ketogenic Diet
Net Carbs in a Ketogenic Diet

Christmas is upon us, and I thought it was only appropriate that I come bearing gifts for the loyal followers of the Ketogenic Diet Experiment.

One big thing I learned this week was that the net carbs in fibrous vegetables impact ketone levels more than I suspected early on.

So I created a table of foods (mainly vegetables that I’ve consumed at some point) that has been a helpful reference when shopping. Yes… that table is my gift to you.

I know, I know. You’re overcome with joy and don’t know how to express it. But there’s no time to get emotional; you’ve got plenty of shopping left to do. Just do something really awesome for me one day, and we’ll call it even.

You can check out the list here: Net Carbs in Vegetables (per Pound & 100 Grams). I don’t plan to limit the foods so let me know if there’s anything you’d like me to add in the future.

That’s it for this week.

Happy Holidays!


Ps. You can see my ketone levels fluctuated quite a bit over the past couple of weeks which was mainly due to varying the quantity of vegetables that I consumed and the net carbs that those vegetables contained.

  1. Mark, we’ve been basically synchronizing with this experiment. I started mine in October this year…I’m pretty satisfied with the results and I think I’m gonna stick to this lifestyle as I’ve gotten used to it…

    what about you Mike. what did you find difficult? what did you find advantageous?

    oh, and by the way…Merry Christmas! 🙂

    1. Hey Chris, thanks for the comment. I hope to write a recap at some point about my experience.

      One positive: Energy/focus seem more consistent when keeping blood sugar levels even by reducing carbohydrates. One negative: reduced performance during lifting and/or anaerobic activity.

      By the way, I really enjoyed reading over your site; it looks like we have a lot of similar interests. Merry Christmas!
