Sometimes the word “diet” is associated with eating foods that are bland and not very tasteful.
When it comes to the ketogenic diet, you’re going to have a lot of food options that are extremely tasteful. You’re going to wonder if you’re even on a diet.
One drawback is the fact that you aren’t allowed many sugars or carbs at all. This means that you aren’t going to be able to have some of your favorite desserts.
You may even be thinking that you can’t have anything sweet at all.
The beauty of the ketogenic diet is that there are keto substitutes for almost every traditional meal.
There are desserts in the keto world that are going to taste like you aren’t missing out on anything when it comes to the sweets you love so much.
