If you’re starting a low carb diet, on Atkins Induction or trying to enter ketosis quickly, eating the right zero carb foods seriously step up your game. Many vegetables have no carbs or almost no carbs, including cucumbers, radishes, lettuce, spinach and celery. Heavy cream and whipped cream are excellent options, each having only trace amounts of carbs.
There are more than 60 zero carb spices to choose from – but these eight special spices speed up your fat loss. Now Foods erythritol powder is a natural sweetener that’s non-GMO, low glycemic impact and zero calorie. A complete list of zero carb and almost zero carb foods, arranged by food group and total net carbs. The fastest way to reach ketosis using your diet is by limiting carbs: 20 to 50 grams per day, or less than 10% of total daily calories. Specific diet and exercise techniques, such as intermittent fasting and high intensity interval training (HIIT) workout routines help you get into ketosis quickly and maximize your fat loss.
Eat low carb during the day or avoid fruit, starchy veggies, grains, sugary treats, rice, bread and pasta.
In the morning before eating, perform a HIIT routine, another kind of intense exercise or weight training.
In the morning (before eating) perform medium intensity, steady state exercises or weight training. In addition to rapid fat loss, many low carbers experience a burst of energy and a lightened mood.
Some dieters notice a temporary, strange taste in the mouth and mild sweet breath odor, signaling they are in ketosis.
There is a popular way to measure ketones to tell if you are in ketosis: testing with strips. Special test strips called keto sticks (or ketostix, keto strips) are used to detect ketones in the urine, a sure sign of ketosis. Fat-adapted low carbers may not register ketones after being in ketosis for longer periods of time. These low carbers use ketones more efficiently and levels may not be detectable in the urine, even though they are in ketosis. Use this keto calculator to determine your ideal nutrient intake for weight loss or maintenance during ketosis. The low carb keto calculator creates a plan based on how much fat you would like to lose each week. The calculator recommends the optimum daily calories, fat, carbs and protein grams to help you get into ketosis and meet your weight loss goal. Even though most of your calories are from high fat foods, once you get into ketosis your body burns the fat instead of storing it. This plan does all the work for you, using sound nutrition and vibrant foods to create high fat recipes that are dairy-, gluten-, sugar- and grain-free. While in ketosis, your blood sugar is very low, so alcohol will have a more pronounced effect. Hard liquors (scotch, vodka) may be consumed in moderation – they have only trace amounts of carbs.
Cycling higher and lower carb days is a powerful tool -specifically designed to promote greater fat loss. The Keto Beginning is a highly recommended program – especially if you’re not ready for Atkins Maintenance phase or an increase in carbs every day.
Since the majority of calories on a ketogenic diet will come from dietary fats, choices should be made with digestive tolerance in mind. Saturated and monounsaturated fats such as butter, macadamia nuts, coconut oil, avocado and egg yolks are tolerated more easily by most people, and since they are more chemically stable, they are less inflammatory. Berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries) can be enjoyed occasionally in small amounts, as they are the lowest in carbohydrate.
Spices do have carbs, so be sure to count them if they are added to meals made using this low carb food list. Before I begin, I want to say that it has been extremely difficult for me to put together my story because I am a very private person.  I thought about it over the past year and it wouldn't be fair to not share it with you. My name is Laura and I've been struggling with my weight since I was a young girl.  Most of you know or share the same story:  dieting over the years and trying every plan out there! The very next day is when I realized I had to take control and do something so this would never happen to me again.  I surfed the internet and came the Kimkins website.  After reading the success stories how could I not at least give it a try? During this time I started to not feel well and this is where my story turns into my nightmare.  I had been under so much stress with my employer and my blood pressure was skyrocketing!  I was not taking my blood pressure or thyroid meds and landed myself in the hospital. I woke up and was told I was in heart failure and needed a heart transplant, but wouldn't be eligible for one.  I thought I was having a nightmare.  What are they talking about?  I knew I wasn't feeling well, but a heart transplant???
All I kept thinking about was my daughter who was only 11 years old and she was going to have to grow up without a mother.  I couldn't grasp anything they were telling me in the hospital.  Why was this happening to me??? I was finally able to see some light at the end of my tunnel.  I would finally be shopping in the normal sizes (and I hadn't shopped in years). I wasn't getting the answers I wanted regarding my heart condition so I transferred doctors.  My new doctor was very pleasant and said I was one of the lucky ones because I had what doctors call "viral cardiomyopathy". Now I run into people I know and they have no clue who I am!  When they finally realize it's ‘me’ their response is always the same, "OMG, you're a completely new person!"  I stand proud and say, "Yes, I am a completely new person!"  I even had the excess skin removed from my tummy area recently.
One more thing I have to share is that my LDL has dropped from 178 to 122 and my HDL increased from 52 to 78.
In a personal smoothie maker or blender add all ingredients and blend on HIGH until desired consistency. I was born and raised in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada, the smallest province, just north of Maine. At one point, I discovered Atkins and lost a lot of weight, down to 141 lbs in fact, but could never keep it off. My love for film making kept me going, but I hated seeing myself on camera, so I stayed behind the scenes, telling myself that was what I wanted. About two years ago, one of my sisters introduced me to Louise Hay and her teaching about emotions being the center of my problems. With the absolute perfect timing only the Universe can devise, I spotted the cover of Woman’s World that changed my way of eating completely.
I love the forums and post every day, catching up with friends I only know by screen names but who have become an important part of my journey. And yes, I’ve fallen off of the wagon a time or two, but the key for me has been getting back on.


My journey with Kimkins actually began in June '07 when at the check out in the grocery store, I bought the Woman's World magazine featuring the Kimkins eating plan. After eating myself silly through '08 and looking at myself at the end of the holiday season with discontent, I knew it was time to change. I have always had some form of exercise in my life but now I was eating more and not exercising enough. I was apprehensive at first and was more of a lurker on the KK [Kimkins] site than an active poster or participant. We did challenges, learned how many calories, fat grams and carbs were allowable each day for our weight, age and height.
I learned how exercising affects my body, muscle groups, weight maintenance, endurance, overall health and long term health.
I believe it is so important to interact within a group as this is so beneficial to one's weight loss in so many ways.
I joined another group called the Cabana Boys Cafe, after Kimmer's Boot Camp challenge and still keep in touch with many of these dear friends. Take in and learn all you can about this WOE [way of eating] here at Kimkins, but know these "special friends" that you meet here will remain in your heart and in your lives if you want them to and hopefully you may get to meet them personally. Kimkins has taught me that it is all part of the plan, but when we clean up the knees, towel off the sweat and wipe off the tears the results will be a slimmer, healthier and more happy YOU!! I have gotten so many compliments from so many friends, family and acquaintances that knew the "old" me versus the "new" me. Live simply, love generously, serve faithfully, speak truthfully, pray daily and leave everything else to GOD!
All food products in Australia are required to list nutritional information panels on the product. If you’re feeling really brave you can grab a copy of the USDA’s complete data set that they publish in the USA which has an almost unusably large amount of information in it! This is a great place to start for any new low carber who wants to get an understanding of it all, without getting a medical degree or studying nutritional science! Ketosis happens when carbs are very low – usually when eating 20 to 50 grams of net carbs or less per day.
This free online keto calculator determines your ideal nutrient ratio for weight loss or maintenance during ketosis. The keto calculator recommends the optimum daily calories, fat, carb and protein amounts to help you get into ketosis – and meet your weight loss goal. During keto, low carbers experience bursts of energy and heightened mood – just two of the big benefits of ketosis. Some dieters notice a temporary, sweet taste in the mouth or a mild, sweet breath odor, a signal they have reached ketosis. A measurable way to know if you’ve reached ketosis is by testing for ketones with inexpensive strips. Keto test strips are an inexpensive way to know you’ve reached ketosis, but if the strip doesn’t register the presence of ketones, you can still be ketosis.
Reaching ketosis quickly means burning off all excess glucose, eating a specific ratio of low carb high fat foods and tracking progress by measuring ketones. Envision fat as a food group. Eating more high fat foods curbs hunger and provides enormous amounts of energy. Triple filtered, pharmaceutical grade, BPA-free container, USA-made, identical quality to the popular ‘Bulletproof’ brand. The fastest way to reach ketosis using your diet is by limiting carbs to 20% of total calories per day, but some low carbers eat very low amounts of carbs – less than 5%. Cover leafy green veggies, zucchini, broccoli and cauliflower with healthy, grass-fed butter, or olive oil with a spritz of lemon.
Your body can store enough glycogen in the liver and muscles to sustain 90-120 minutes of intense exercise. It can take anywhere from 1-10 days to burn off all of that glycogen depending on how active you are and how low your carb intake is. Try a HIIT routine (short bursts of exercise followed by short periods of rest) for maximum sugar-burning with minimal effort.
Aggressive techniques like high intensity interval training (HIIT) are popular with low carbers because they deplete the excess glucose, and help them reach ketosis fast. In the morning (before eating) perform a HIIT routine, intense exercise or weight training. Plan high fat keto meals and begin eating a super low carb keto diet with 0 to 2% of calories from net carbs. You may continue to eat super low carb for a while or increase your net carbs slowly each day. Keto strips will help pinpoint the best range of net carbs to stay in fat-burning keto mode. Here are plenty of options to make flavorful, satisfying meals with zero carbs or almost zero carbs and a few suggestions to make things more interesting.
According to USDA food lists, Camembert, cheddar, Munster and parmesan cheeses have zero carbs. Atkins prefers sucralose (Splenda), but small amounts (2 to 3 servings) of saccharine (Sweet N Low) are also allowed. When carbs are restricted or absent from your diet, your body must rely almost solely on fat for energy.
Keto sticks are a good detector of ketosis, but if the strip doesn’t register the presence of ketones, you can still be ketosis. Coconut oil gives food a nice “buttery” (not coconut) flavor, and is one of the healthiest choices for cooking and baking. MCT converts into energy faster than other oils, ignites your body’s metabolic rate and helps maintain healthy levels of cholesterol. Add to salads, smoothies or your latest Bulletproof coffee fasting plan for immediate, all-day energy.
Most people cannot tolerate eating a large amount of vegetable oil, mayonnaise or even olive oil over time.
Choose organic or grass fed animal foods and organic eggs if possible to minimize bacteria, antibiotic and steroid hormone intake. Be aware that dairy proteins (whey and casein) are insulinogenic (meaning they cause an insulin spike) in the body, so if you having trouble losing weight or getting into ketosis, limit amounts or avoid. Cashews, pistachios and chestnuts are higher in carb, so track carefully to avoid going over carb limits. However, if there is a desire for something sweet, these are the recommended choices for sweeteners.


My husband and I work out 2-3 times a week, hike at least twice a week, go bowling, play pool and ping pong. Thanks to those who supported me on my weight loss journey and a great big thanks to Kimmer!!! I looked back in my account profile and on June 8, '07 I purchased my membership to Kimkins and didn't do anything with it after this.
I guess, the biggest reason among others, were I had no experience with interactive groups on the internet. I had to change my eating patterns, my lifestyle and I was finally desperate enough to get off the couch and make the move. The eating wasn't quality food consumption, but junk and empty calories with no realization of how many carbs, calories and fat grams I was consuming a day. I had never bothered to learn how important this is to losing weight effectively and in the long term.
All these things I had never taken the time to learn nor did I know how important proper food consumption is to our bodies and to that of our families.
If you lurk and don't involve yourself in groups or challenges no one gets to know you, you are invisible to others -- you don't get the full advantage of the whole KK [Kimkins] program. Spiked insulin levels encourage fat storage and compromise your goal to reach ketosis quickly. Common fasting programs avoid food of any kind (except water) for 12-24 hours to deplete these sugar stores. It’s probably too early for you to be in ketosis, but a few lucky low carbers WILL be there already!
Your newly efficient metabolism now burns fat for energy – the fats you eat and your stored body fat.
And this is a good thing, since vegetable oils are high in polyunsaturated Omega-6 fatty acids. Over time, it will become a habit to add a source of fat to each meal.Avoid hydrogenated fats such as margarine to minimize trans fats intake. These are higher in inflammatory Omega 6 fats, so limit amounts, and dona€™t heat them.85-90% dark chocolate can be used in small amounts, or use Chocoperfection low carb chocolate. Avoid the starchy vegetables such as corn, peas, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and most winter squash as they are much higher in carbs. I also try to avoid products that have added whey protein because whey adds to the insulin spike.Heavy whipping creamFull fat sour cream (check labels for additives and fillers. Sea salt is preferred over commercial salt, which is usually cut with some form of powdered dextrose.
In the first few months, I lost 30 lbs pounds and felt better about myself than I have in years. It wouldn't be until Jan of '09 and many extra pounds later that I would begin to actually interact and use my Kimkins membership.
I knew I had to start some place, but just wasn't sure if this would really work or just be another fad. It is fun if you get in with a group that shares your same interests and makes the whole experience easier when you are having fun while losing weight.
The motivation, inspiration, enthusiasm, fun and love we shared in this group was above the top and wish we could of bottled what we had! If you put your heart into something, you know that you have given it your best and shared a part of yourself that hopefully has made you a better person and that you have helped someone else in this journey. It is life changing when you take time to take care for yourself, watch how we influence others and how we can impact those around us in so many positive and healthy ways. The Omega-6 fatty acids (found in nut oils, margarine, soybean oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, corn oil, and canola oil) trigger inflammation within the body and they will make you sick if they are your only fat source.
If you use vegetable oils (olive, canola, sunflower, safflower, soybean, flaxseed and sesame oils) choose "cold pressed." Keep cold pressed oils like almond and flaxseed refrigerated to avoid rancidity.
If you have concerns about this, please note that I have done research in the medical literature and I have looked at the studies which have been offered on sucralose (Splenda).I have yet to find a gold standard, clinically controlled human study which shows conclusively that sucralose causes human health issues. The biggest thing that I’ve learned is that when I control my carbs I control my appetite and my cravings -- simple as that. I have to be honest and say that is one of the downfalls of getting really close to others in the challenges -- others are going to move on and so will you. This list is by no means comprehensive, so if there is a green vegetable you like that is not on this low carb food list, feel free to include it.
I don't like to propagate misinformation so I wait until there are definitive studies of negative effects before I condemn a product. They worked for while but I wouldn’t even come close to goal before I couldn’t stick with them anymore.
Not only do I have the help of my life coach, I also have access to the best support group I could ever ask for. However, there are polyunsaturated fats which are essential and these are the Omega 6 and Omega 3 fats. Use clean non-hydrogenated lard, beef tallow, coconut oil, ghee and olive oil for frying, since they have high smoke points. In my opinion, eating sugar, honey and other nutritive sweeteners has negative blood sugar effects which far surpass those which might be associated with using a small amount of Splenda, or any other non-nutritive sweetener.Having said that, I will also say that I offer information on this low carb food list about Splenda, just as I do on the other sugar substitutes, because everyone is different.
And although neither of us had experienced any health problems to that point, darkness loomed as our forties approached.
I've shed many a tear climbing on the scales when I didn't see the number that I thought I should.  Or have shed tears of joy knowing that I have met a personal goal! Your intake of Omega 6 and Omega 3 types should be balanced, and you only need about a teaspoon a day. Eating wild salmon, tuna and shellfish will provide balancing Omega 3 fatty acids and are important part of a low carb food list.
I try to offer both pros and cons for each sweetener, with the idea that readers will use the product that suits them best. If you don't like seafood, then consider taking small amounts of a fish or krill oil supplement for Omega 3s.
Be aware that whey protein is insulinogenic (meaning it causes an insulin spike) in the body, so if you having trouble losing weight or getting into ketosis, limit amounts or avoid whey.
