    How many grams of sugar will kick you out of ketosis?

    Shop Now
    I understand ketosis is achieved when staying between 0-50g of carbs, upwards to 100g for some people.

    But I was wondering where sugar fits in to this?

    The reason I'm asking is there's a full fat greek yogurt that I LOVE. But it's got 15g of carbs and 10g of sugar.

    Will eating that likely to kick me out of ketosis?

    thinking about being IN ketosis or not is somewhat misleading. What you want is to be fully keto-adapted, meaning your body will seamlessly move from carb burning, fat burning, maybe protein burning back and forth. The carb flu period is when you are not fully adapted and feel a bit out of sorts when transitioning. For someone fully adapted, having a high carb meal or day should not impair longer-term fat burning and fatloss.

    Sugar and carbs in yogurt is misleading. Carbs in all foods are not determined directly, but presumed to be what is left over after subtracting proteins and fats. Most, but not all, of the milk's lactose is converted to acids (acidolphilus, any one?) which while still carbs are no longer sugars.

    Just stay away from sugar added yogurts and don't eat it too often. It is dairy.

    Does anyone know if an avocado has enough carbs to affect ketosis? I have found conflicting information online.

    if you're staying at your threshold for ketosis, you're fine.
