1. Using one of the Keto coffee recipes with the monk fruit blend. 2. The community has mixed feelings on Quest products, but they are less bad than others if a cheat is coming. They are a high protein/ high fiber cheat. (Processed and I get the criticism of them.) 3. Bone broth Fasting(24 is as long as I go), Magnesium, cacao nibs are my hacks for the deep crave. chocolate craving for many, is seeking Magnesium for many. 4. Or plan a cycle out day/ meal but take a good K2, Super K, Elite K. Many are obsessed with MK-7 for calcium but I have found it improves my insulin and glucose disturbances if K2 intake is high. My fasted are normals, but post-prandial we’re insane pre-LCHF and finding K2 (helps exercise endurance as well.)

You can do it! Just remember it’s ok to step down gradually. DM if you want my weird keto tricks, I used to have a sugar addiction and my entire life improved once I quit.

Monk sugar is your best friend

I love chocolate too! A lot of sugar substitution. Monk sugar and swerve were my best friends. If I had a chocolate craving I would go for the 70% chocolate bars by Lindt. It tasted disgusting at first but I ate it every time I had a craving so I got used to it. I actually love 70 % chocolate now and my cravings went down by a lot as I continued keto. YOU GOT THIS! STAY STRONG!

I love ChocZero, but beware: it has soluble corn fiber, aka maltodextrin. It’s super high on the Glycemic Index, meaning it will mess with your blood sugar. Try to keep servings small, or go for one of their darker chocolate squares (70%+).

Monk fruit for sure! You can also try making some of your own keto-friendly baked items. Alldayidreamaboutfood.com (love the name) has amazing recipes! Saved our holiday.

Eat progressively darker chocolate to train your palette. It will taste normal over time. Once you’re up to 85%+, it’s essentially trace sugar unless you’re really having a lot.

I never had problem with eating a little bit of Lily’s dark chocolate when I was craving something sweet. It’s sweetened with stevia. You can find them in some grocery stores. I like the salted almond flavor.

It’s not malto, or polydextrin but about 50% of folks are more likely insulin response to any fiber including SCF. I have a small upfront bump and tiny post prandial. I was skeptical until I read it put against ISO, the previous fiber of choice. https://insulinresistance.org/index.php/jir/article/view/32/97 50% of daily fiber per chocolate, can cause GI distress if like my mother in law you pound 4-5 bars in a sitting.

Lattes, and everything in between. Any suggestions for things to eat on keto that can cut that craving? Or any suggestions in general for food/snack options? Any insight would be amazing!
