Obviously, if you’re Keto, this won’t work at all. Since Keto forces you to replace some nutrients to others, you’ll need to include plenty of fiber in your meals in order to keep your bowels in good working condition.
Another reason as to why these sugary juice additions are bad is because of your fructose levels. The point of the Keto diet is to get your liver to burn off the fat that it’s stored. When your fructose levels go up, your pancreas goes into overdrive, while your liver doesn’t.
This fructose becomes stored fat in your body. As a result, you’ll gain weight, not lose it!
When you make a proper Keto approved juice, you’ll be replacing the sugar with plenty of fiber and fats. These will be processed by your liver, which will then be motivated to burn off any other fats that have been stored there. You’ll lose weight, instead of gain it.
Things to put into a proper low-carb, high-fiber juice include:
- Potato starch
- Coconut milk
