Keto Snacks On The Go: 9 Tasty Treats for Busy People

With the goal of fewer than 5% of calories from carbs on a strict keto diet, it's crucial to know which portable snacks will keep you in ketosis. So, that's exactly what we're here to provide you!

What Makes A Great On-The-Go Snack?

This list will specifically focus on snacks that are also keto-friendly. We've included net carbs and macronutrients for your convenience. Now onto the list!

Keto Overview

The Ketogenic diet supplements fat for carbs to fuel your body with the energy that carbohydrates usually provide. This change in diet–the reduction of total carbohydrate intake more specifically-will transition the body into a metabolic state called ketosis. When the body enters this state, it becomes efficient at burning fat for energy. 

What is Ketosis?

Ketosis is a metabolic state that the body enters in which there's a high concentration of ketones in the blood. When restricting carbohydrates, hormone insulin levels go down, and fatty acids are released from body fat stores in large amounts. These fatty acids are transported to the liver, where they're oxidized and turned into ketones. These ketone bodies provide energy for the body. 

The Ketogenic Diet offers several health benefits and may improve symptoms of various ailments and diseases. Ketosis is an essential part of that process. 

What are net carbs?

Net carbs are considered to be the carbohydrates that your body digests and converts into glucose. Most people on low-carb diets track net carbs rather than total carbohydrates. 

To calculate net carbs, simply subtract the dietary fiber and sugar alcohol content (if applicable) from the total carbohydrates. 

Net Carbs = Total carbs - fiber - sugar alcohols
