In today’s video of Keto for Vegans we
will be sharing the answers to the nine
most frequently asked questions about
Keto for Vegans so stay tuned for the
spaghetti marinara oops sorry
no spaghetti on keto or Vegan keto for
that matter greetings and welcome to
Kept Unify a channel dedicated to
sharing Keto stories research and types
of keto diets suitable for different
groups of individuals so without further
ado the number one question asked by
vegans on a keto diet or looking to go
keto is how many grams of carbs can I
eat every day now this depends on a lot
of factors including your metabolism
lifestyle activity level and food
preferences typically people can achieve
ketosis eating somewhere between 20 to
50 grams of net carbs per day and most
weekends starting out on keto aim to hit
around 25 to 30 grams per day as a
starting point adjusting from there as
needed
of course everyone is different you may
find that you are super active and 60
grams is the right spot for you or
maybe you feel best at 20 grams it’s
really up to you
question number two how many calories
should I eat in a day on a keto vegan
diet well you see keto diet isn’t about
counting calories and most people on any
type of keto diet do not calorie count
just try to make sure that you eat
nutritionally complete set of meals each
day Question number 3: Can I be
gluten free on a Keto Vegan diet well
yes you totally can in fact if you’re
suffering from inflammation related
health issues like thyroid PCOS or
hormonal imbalance then it is
recommended to cut off all gluten from
your diet whether you are a Vegan or
not but even if you are a fairly healthy
person or just trying keto as a weight
loss strategy then going gluten-free as
a Vegan will restrict your diet even
further but it is totally possible and
many do so successfully
question number four: Do I have to eat
soy on a vegan keto diet now of course
not you don’t have to eat anything you
don’t want to or that doesn’t feel good
for your body
the easy answer to this is yes of course
you can eat a Vegan keto diet without
relying on a soy product however things
get a little more challenging when you
switch from hypotheticals into reality
and start planning just how to meet all
of your nutritional needs without using
soy as a low carb vegan the good news is
that there are plenty of soy free keto
vegan recipes available online for free
if you find yourself running out of
ideas of what to eat to get enough
proteins in your body on a keto vegan
diet.
Question number 5: Is food X Y or Z
keto friendly you can insert
whatever food you’re questioning about
there you like, short answer – Keto isn’t
about eating off of a certain list of
foods or about eliminating a certain
food entirely it’s about eating few
enough carbs to achieve ketosis if you
can do this while eating peanut butter
or tomatoes or even small amounts of
beets on a salad then go for it whatever
feels best for you
for your body is what you should be
aiming for it’s far more important to
focus on the nutritional benefits of a
certain food type than whether or not it
appears on a list of a keto friendly
salad toppings or whatever is trending
yes there are certainly some foods like
hummus that are a bit high in carbs as
long as you feel good eating them and
can fit them into your macros than they
are

bell icon to be notified when the next
video is uploaded alright so back to the
FAQ’s and question number six is do I
have to avoid all sugar on a Keto diet for Vegans. Well in strict
ketogenic diet to keep the carbs below 20
grams a day you would pretty much need
to avoid any or most sugar whether it’s
added sugar or naturally occurring sugar
in fruits and veggies but on a vegan
diet most plant foods have some amount
of natural sugars so nuts and seeds kale
coconut berries olives all of these
foods and way more would be off the
table if you started categorically
cutting out
natural sugar in fact you’d pretty much
just be left with oil and protein powder
which doesn’t sound like a super
sustainable diet
so in short keto for Vegans may
sound very restrictive and non
sustainable unless you tweak the carb
intake according to your own needs
question 7 can I drink coffee on a key
to vegan diet the answer is absolutely
and no you don’t have to drink it black
you can add a little bit of coconut milk
there are plenty of dairy free milk out
there that all work really well in
coffee you can even make a vegan version
of bulletproof coffee with MCT oil and
coconut milk it’s pretty tasty
question 8 can I still do intermittent
fasting on a keto vegan diet yes you can
Keto is just a nutritional state so what
ever eating schedule you currently have
can work on a ketogenic diet in fact
most people say that Keto has helped
them to practice intermittent fasting as
their cravings are far better controlled
last but not the least how do I get
started on a keto for Vegans now again
the answer to this varies from person to
person some people prefer to dive in
headfirst and eat super low carb right
off the bat while others prefer to
slowly dip their toes in before fully
committing now if you’re currently
eating a very high carb and low fat diet
you may want to ease your way into
ketosis by swapping out high carb foods
for the low cup counterparts for
instance you may want to eat cauliflower
rice instead of regular rice and
zucchini noodles instead of spaghetti
for a few days to see how it feels
now slowly add whole forms of fat like
seeds and nuts to your meals keep making
substitutions until you find a place
where you feel really good and aren’t
hungry all the time so hopefully you
