Before we get to that list of treats, we need to make one thing very clear.
How To Eat Desserts On A Low-Carb Diet
It’s super important to have the correct mindset about desserts, especially on a low-carb diet. You see, with Thinlicious, it isn’t just about tracking carbs and staying within a certain number; it’s more about supporting your overall health.
And you shouldn’t ignore nutrition.
The desserts on this list might be good for you, but the bulk of your calories and nutrients should still come from pure protein and gut-supporting fiber from low-carb vegetables.
How often should you eat desserts on keto? Good question. It’s ok to indulge in desserts when you’re celebrating something or spending time with people who are close to you. It’s also ok to give in when your sweet tooth is screaming.
But you should still make sure that you’re getting enough protein, healthy fats and fiber before filling up on low-carb sweets. And you should always use sweeteners that support your health (this sweeteners guide explains more about the best and worst keto sweeteners).
Here’s the most shocking thing of all: when you feed your body the macronutrients it needs, you’ll actually crave sugar less often! It’s pretty phenomenal.
