“If you have insulin resistance,” says Dr. Ekberg, “you will want to focus on foods to eat on keto with no carbs & no sugar as the main way to eat. Foods that are higher in carbs will tend to spike your insulin levels the most. If you can eat a no sugar diet, no carb diet like a carnivore diet, or a diet that is very low in sugar and carbs you will have the best results in your overall health.
“You can use these foods as easy no carb snacks especially when you are on the go. From low carb veggies to butter to quality meats you can eat healthy yummy foods.”
