  • What about products like Sparkling Ice sparkling water that has pure sucralose in it or jello that has aspartame in it? Is it gonna spike my blood sugar? Is it bad to consume?

  • My concern about watermelon and other melons, is the fructose. Berries are mostly glucose as well as grapefruit and lemons and lime. Fructose is much worse than glucose. Melon is highly not recommended by me on keto.

  • probably would have gotten crispy, if you’d have fried them; and my understanding of what you said at the beginning is you didn’t fry them, only because it would have been too much of a mess, and no vent hood. i think cut smaller, and parboiled/blanched/fried, they’d have become crispy. keen to try the rutabaga, as i’m mostly interested in keto, and my mom, who is 83, has a good bit of arthritis; potatoes are part of the nightshade family, and they aggravate her arthritis. she’s keen to try rutabaga as a sub for potatoes, too.

  • Bulgur is the best among all and very tasty in many different recipes. If it is done right, it is even more delitious than white rice. The right spelling and pronounciation from its origin the Arabic language is “Burghul”.

  • I’m recently OBSESSED with your channel. Thank you for all of the direction! I would loooove a best radish or best daikon based recipe video! I’m so intrigued after watching this one:).

  • So the iodized salt is stripped of minerals. So tf what. After decades of being told “salt is bad for you” and uniodized sea salt is better” not all people are getting adequate iodine. The amount of minerals in sea salt is so minimal as to be insignificant and if you get those minerals from regular food, you’re not doing it right

  • Hi. I’ve already lost 50 kilos. Now I’ve got a problem I cant eat dairy and eggs so my diet is very boring and for 8 months I haven’t lost any weight. What i eat is sweet potato baby marrows, pumpkin.spring onions, mushrooms, carrots and a few other low carb veggies plus proteins. Absolutely no weight loss, I have fybromyalgia and colon problems. Please help

  • Mushrooms as vegetables?! Not in my country…:D Love your accent and video contents; just subscribed. But I learn all that for my husband rather, and for me later, cause now I’m pregnant and I read it may not be safe for me to go on keto diet then.

  • I’m type one diabetic and my insulin injection is less than half amount since trying out the keto diet ✨ loving the pyure sweetener ��

  • I had bacon and eggs for breakfast this morning. I purchased all natural bacon with no preservatives. I noticed it tasted a little sweet and when I looked at the ingredients it had turbinado sugar in it. Did I kick myself out of keto?

  • Just started following your channel, thankyou soo much for starting this channel and sharing the knowledge about keto, I am doing Keto since 9 months and enjoying the benefits of it. I have seen other videos as well on this channel and they are crisp and to the point, it’s a great feeling when you know you are not alone in world to follow this lifestyle and there’s a community who supports and help you as well. Thank you once again, you are making a huge impact.. Would love to see more videos on this channel. ❤����

  • It’s my frist time trying „fasting” and I’m still new to all of this, maybe I’ll try keto one day, but right now I have a ton of questions in mind. One important, as I am from Italy, eating 2/3 whole grain pasta in a week it’s a good idea, for example with tuna, and in other occasions change with rice?

  • What’s your favourite item from this list? Is there a substitute that you have for white rice that we mat have missed? If you enjoyed this video, please give it a like and share it with your friends! ��

  • Stay away from Apples? What is this?On another place on YouTube i heard that you can eat how much you want of Apples without gaining weight.Snd IT was a doctor who Said that.I am om a healthy weight,but people WHO maybe search for be educated og what They should eat om a weightloss Journey must be very confused.

  • Men who do heavy work can not be on this kind of diet. If you work in an office, sit down sometime or most of the time, have a fairly easy going job, have several breaks a day, then perhaps, but if you’re working in the middle of the sea, fishing trawlers, oil rigs, construction, metal factories, carrying heavy loads all day, you won’t last one day!

  • What about Pomegranate juice? I would like to start drinking one cup daily and it’s not concentrated its straight up Pomegranate juice no additive no additional sugar. I would like to drink it because of the health benefits I know it high in natural sugar and carbs. But my daily sugar and carb intake is super low from what I eat daily my only carbs and sugar come from my vegetables.

  • I’m confused as to why monk fruit would not have been mentioned at all. Also, some people are seeing insulin spikes with Stevia, I am hearing?

  • Thomas, congrats for sharing amazing knowledge and tips with us! What do you think of a “tricky chocolate” smoothie to break a long 20h fast? (pure cacao, brewer’s yeast, pure curcumin, fresh lemon/lime juice and water)��

  • I’ve started finishing things off in the broiler ever since I read an article on the best way to cook a frozen pizza (basically cook in the oven & crisp in the broiler)…whatever you make in the oven, finish it off in the broiler for anywhere from 1-3 min (check it OFTEN & do not do something else while you wait! It can go from perfect to burnt in the blink of an eye). It makes everything more crispy…cheeses get bubbly, browning gets a crisp edge. I used to just store cast iron skillets in the bottom broiler drawer. Now I set my pan right on top of them. Try it!

  • This channel is awesome! I love how the cooking videos are short and have no one talking in them-they are easy to understand and not too long. I can’t find the testimonials of other people’s success though. I’ve looked through the playlists. Can someone help? I’m only on Day 7 so far, but the scale says I’m already down 6 lbs, and that is 6 lbs OFF of my injured spine! A back injury is what pushed me to do keto. I need to lose 100lbs or so. I’m gonna do it!

  • Brilliant video. Stevia has some after taste. Erithritol is good but sweetness is little low. So Xylitol n Allulose is good but has some effect on stomach. So best way is to combine all the 4. Can u suggest the ratio for combination of all 4 to bring a decent sweetness powder with less calorie n Glycemic index with decent sweetness. Thanks n love from india

  • I like Spaghetti Squash with extra-virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, and some dried Italian herbs on it. Not a huge fan of it as “a marinara transport agent”-it’s OK, but I prefer Zoodles for that. Not all zoodle-makers are expensive. I got one that works like a cheap pencil sharpener-you just put the end of the zucchini (or carrot or whatever) into it and twist. The zoodles come out the side. No moving parts to break and under $20 on Amazon.

  • I eat foods that raise my metabolism, so I can eat anything. Also, I keep the fiber low not essential and not digestible. I watch my calories.

  • Rutabaga (we call them “navet” ulin canadian french) is so good. Some people really hate it though, just like cilantro tastes like soap to me. Something about genetics and chemistry.

  • Bread is a BIG issue for me and finding low sodium bread is not easy. 140 mg per serving as referenced in the video, which is per slice I imagine, is a lot higher than I would like. But lots of commercial, prepackaged bread has over 200 mg per slice. You can find bread with 75 to 80 mg per slice, like Ezekiel bread, but the slice is only 34 grams. So it’s important to note the grams per slice.

    I have found Pepperidge Farm bread to be a fairly good option (compared to what else is available) and it’s available at many stores. A slice is 49 grams and has 135 mg of sodium, so a little better than the example in the video. It’s not as low as Ezekiel bread, but not bad when you consider that a slice is 15 grams more.

    For me, I’m going to reduce my consumption of bread, especially tasty bakery bread, because I have no idea of the sodium content.

    I had hope to find a low sodium option at Trader Joe’s but I found out that they no longer offer it. It was not selling. But TJ’s does have a lot of very good low or no sodium options for other foods like pasta sauce and many of their nuts (peanuts, sunflower seeds, almonds) have unsalted options.

  • i would like to see this video redone with them all being deep fried. nonetheless thank you wes for showing us what the 100 grams looked like cause i was about to go in on some jicama fries hahaha

  • another weird but effective alternative are yellow (wax) beans. It loosely resembles ziti pasta noodles once the sauce and extras are added, and the texture is similar if cooked tender.

  • I live on a farm and we grow something wich I don´t know the English word for wich looks like that one with purpel on Love your videos

  • Have you tried the elbows from the great low carb bread co.? I found them on amazon I havent tried them yet but the ingredients are (in order on label) pea protein isolate, oat fiber, wheat fiber, egg whites, wheat gluten and semolina. I dont want to get kicked out of ketosis but I know I’m human and will maintain my lifestyle especially since I have lost almost 100lbs since last may following a lot of your advice. Thank you thomas for being an inspiration to me and helping me with your videos and saving my life. Have a great day

  • Health Commissioner Barbot’s PSA making a broad statement for everyone to just stay home only works for the already sick. If everyone follows it’ll further collapse the economy, increase unemployment and food shotages and suicides.

  • You can get a manual spiralizer for $23 so not really expensive at all, and it is fun to make zoodles. Frankly pasta is mostly bland and tasteless to me. I always considered it a sauce delivery mechanism, not really the main star of the meal so I love spaghetti squash and my zoodle lasagna. My family loves it too. My blood sugar is so much better now.

  • This would be really time-intensive but have you thought of partially dehydrating the vegetables before cooking them? Also, pre cooking in the microwave would cause less water-logging than parboiling. Zucchini sticks are usually served with a creamy ranch-type dip.

  • I am still not sure which sweetener is the best for diabetics. I was told that monkfruit is good but I watch these videos and there are too many choices. A lot have bulk bags of almond or coconut flour, the husk thickener and make sure u put this sugar with that sugar or it will taste bitter. Is there no simple solution for diabetics? Which sugar is best for the diabetic, be it for baking or otherwise? Thank you.

  • All white rice is hybrid GM pure starch hence why Asia have bone deficiency ONLY wild organic black rice is natural. Barley is hybrid grain zero nutrient replace with rye or spelt. Bulga is hybrid and zero protein. Beans are hybrid created in a laboratory created by man called wenlock. Quinoa is natural so got that one spot on. Cauliflower is the worst vegetable it strips body of iron being hybrid GM genetically modified along with. Broccoli…..butternut squash is the only squash that’s natural.
    Sprouts are hybrid GM zero vitamin pure starch that’s why you produce toxic gas.
    Replace broccoli with kale, zero nutrients.
    Pomegranate is hybrid, replace with sage for Alzheimer’s….
    Please do your research for truth. God bless with love & light <3 <3 <3

  • The photo of kale looks like cabbage to me. Buckwheat is very good, so is amaranth the latter grows in poor soil and needs less rain. I have grown it an the heads or grain yield a great deal.

  • I have never eaten hearts of palm so I was getting really excited about this… But a quick Google search showed that 100 grams hearts of palm have a whopping 26 grams of carbs, and less than 2 grams of fibre ��… that’s not keto enough for me!! Another quick Google search yielded that the foods with the highest copper content are liver and oysters! Well, I happened to have liver this morning it’s one of the most nutrient-dense foods, so I have it at least twice a week… you can keep the hearts of palm!!

  • I’m not big on marinara on any pasta substitute but the palmini noodles have a recipe on their page for alfredo that is amazing on hearts of palm.

  • may i really eat watermelon and melons while on Keto diet? what about the sugars? does it not stop Ketosis? pls clarify…..thanks a lot!

  • Great list. Only thing the fruit you called a “pepper” has nothing to do with pepper the spice. It is a “chile” like a jalapeno. It’s called a “chile campana.” Bell chile. Like the “pineapple,” which is not from a pine tree or is it an apple, it is a new world fruit that the old world misnamed. Thanks.

  • Drop them? So you gonna drop all your asian friends? I’ve been eating rice “a lot” per meal from the moment i was born.. And im skinny af

  • Informative and applicable as always Thomas. Your love for pasta spoke to my soul. If anyone’s looking for an AMAZING keto pasta recipe made with zucchini and pesto, check out the video on my channel. Rachel ray and Guy Fieri loved it. (Seriously)

  • if she didn’t sound like a robot i think i would really like her lol i know it’s her job but even a little personality goes a long way

  • Thought i had my sweet tooth fix figured out with sugar free popsickles from wally mart. Didnt look too closely at label. Double fisting those things like they were gonna stop makin them tomorrow. 13 grams of carbs per. Couldnt figure out why i was blowin up like a xmas wino. How the hell do jamb 13 into a sugar free popsickle?

  • Hey, I saw a guy dry fry veggies to get the moisture out, not brown them but dry them. I tried it it works well for Pizza crust. Also a guy on KetoKing makes a killer keto bread that is awesome and looks just like a real loaf, not cakey. Might want to try it in your next bread war (please)

  • Boy! I love my Zoodles! I wish Spaghetti Squash was available here. Weird that it is not here in Rural Mexico. Hearts of Palm bother me a bit, as I worry about its overall sustainability and ethical harvesting. Last two, only online, from the US with a 50% mark up, so Fine! Sticking to Zoodles. First regular dish I ever switched to Keto was a very basic Spaghetti Dish that we love with lots of garlic, mushrooms, parsley, olive oil and Spanish or Portuguese style Chorizo. Yummy, but oh so fattening if served over the usual box of pasta. Zoodles cleaned that up in a flash!! Thanks Thomas. Great Info as usual.

  • I enjoy pasta and i will continue eating it. Life is meant to be enjoyed. Dont waste your precious time here on earth trying to be sexy and impress other people.

  • This is just superb, been searching for “best foods for low carbs” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across Ronaliana Future Falbala (should be on google have a look )? Ive heard some incredible things about it and my m8 got excellent results with it.

  • My daughter is a very green fingered lady…also an excellent and imaginative cook. She’s the mother of three strapping lads! She grows courgettes in profusion. The boys are thriving on her many ways of cooking courgettes. Soup, as part of a veggie side dish….even in cake. She is a wonder. We all love her and revere her culinary ingenuity ❤️

  • I came here to watch Thomas’s new video. YouTube showed me a commercial for Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, definitely not low carb. Thanks YouTube for trying to wreck my 6 pack, not going to happen. ��
    Hello from Phoenix Arizona!

  • Hey Wes; check out info on advanced glycaeted end-products aka AGES. These will still cause so much damage in the body due to the temps at which such is cooked. Frying would not help either. Def low carb, but still horrendously bad for one due to AGES. Says me, the brown sugar queen. ��

    Love your personality and your vids. ��

  • During the lockdown i am doing this:

    Drink a Glass of WATER,
    Then have a BIG ASS SALAD
    Then eat what you LIKE.

    I’m happy, not cutting anything out and losing weight

  • Hi there
    Are unripe papaya and mangoes allowed?
    The green papaya is a staple in Seychelles and we make stir fries with this.
    I cannot find info anywhere:(

  • I watch your videos faithfully and have learned so much from you! You are very smart and you break things down. You are doing God’s work. Keep it up! ❤����

  • I am a faithful user of stevia & know it has a bitter aftertaste esp when used in XS but im used 2 it by now & so does erythritol, which I find 2b worse. However bc stevia doesnt really xlate well in baking, I recently got Swerve 4 the 1st time & it was INFINITELY better but I had to cut serving size bc of that nasty erythritol taste. �� However I just now purchased a couple of others-ZenSweet and Lokanto Monkfruit Sweeteners. The latter I’m already familiar with bc of their maple syrup (which I also use in my baking). IMO out of all three, ZenSweet tastes the best with Lokanto coming in very close second and Swerve last. I left this LONG comment cuz I thought this clip was referring to brands instead of general types of sweeteners, so if u thought so too, perhaps this’ll help. ����

  • Is all about portian size, those Muricans eat to much pig slop ��
    Packed with oil, salt, sugar only the cheap king like palm oil, dirty salt, and high fructose corn syrup as a subtitute for sugar.
    Also a wide variaty of plants and veggies don’t like to be munched on and will make you get a upset stomach.

  • Several doctors and 2 dieticians told me always count entire carbs. All fiber does is slow the absorption of carbs it doesn’t make them magically disappear. Net carbs is a marketing tactic

  • TOMATO is it a fruit or veg is it toms have seeds therefor make it a fruit?? i have arthritis since 1 was 20, now 47 toms i have to avoid unfortunately

  • My favorite:
    Kelp noodles.
    Edamame pasta is another one..
    High fiber, low carb.
    9 net carbs
    24g protein
    1120g potassium!
    With 12 grams of fiber
    Non GMO, Organic
    Seapoint Farms. The lowest carb brand.
    Your welcome ��

  • Honestly, I’ve tried at least 20 different gluten free low carb “has no” type brand pastas and they are all revolting, so I just eat normal pasta but about 2 thirds the portion and way less often as we all know it does bloat the shit out of most people and is probably one of the heaviest meals you can eat.. pasta is a treat these days to you can’t even get it at the shops at the moment!

  • You missed cabbage! I cut it in thin lengths. Olive oil salt, pepper, garlic powder. Cook in a frying pan just slightly wilted. Cover with pasta sauce great substitute.

  • i thought we weren’t allowed root vegetables that grow under the ground cos they’re the sugar storage for the plant above the ground and too sweet for keto!? just a thort lol! ��
    so that would be carrots potatoes swedes turnips jicama… (so you may as well have used a potato and made real chips!: O ) and onions are too sweet as well… i’ve only been on keto for 2 weeks and i think i know everything lol!!: )
    i am loving watching your videos… please keep them coming!… would you consider making a video with strawberries and cream fatbombs to keep in the freezer…
    and yes i know strawberries are too sweet for keto but they are so pretty!: )

  • Shirataki noodles are disgusting. I followed fhe directions by washing them several times and heating them and it was still gross��

  • I know this is 2 years to late (but for the newbies) lol I learned if you par boil the jicama fries, then lightly oil, season and bake….

  • The main difference between fruits and vegetables is that, when picked, a vegetable will begin to spoil or rot whereas a fruit will continue to ripen after picking.

  • How about gluten free rice noodles? Not a keto option but might be good to have in the evening so the sugar crash is in line with bed time which is a good thing, right? What do you think Thomas?

  • Thank you so much for this valuable overview. You keep bringing up the latest and newest trends, which is super cool. I called my Asian store this morning, and they sell palm hearts in glasses (not in tins I am thrilled!!!) for a reasonable price.
    Shirtake/konjac noodles I have eaten frequently. Now that I have learnt that eating them reduces the hunger hormone level, I am definitely going to eat them more regularly. The important thing is to drink a lot of water when eating konjac.

  • Hurrah! British Youtuber!! Love this post as I’m a UK vegan and trying to move to low carb to supplement fasting… any simple info always good:-)

  • Your always positive and informative and more importantly helping so many people ❤ can’t express how grateful I am for all your videos. Hope you had a lovely Easter with your beautiful family x love your work Thomas, your amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!

  • Pasta is not bad if it isnt fully processed look at Italy for example. They have the oldest population in the world. What do they eat? Pasta and dough heavy meals. Look at Japan, second oldest population, statistically trim, what do they eat? Starch heavy foods, such as potato and rice. I’m not anti keto, but blaming carbs for your weight problems is silly. I’m down 60 pounds in 4 months after switching from a keto like diet, protein focused to a plant based carb diet. I’m not saying keto doesn’t work, it does, but it’s nowhere near as healthy. One thing I like but also dislike about keto is that it’s an easier option for people swapping from the westernized American diet, but at the same time people canabuse the fact you can eat bacon etc, and will obviously go overboard and stretch the limits (not everyone, but a lot I assume would). Anyways take care, I still watch your channel a lot and it initially inspired me to change for the better and to research nutrition more. You’re a really nice dude and I’m sure you help a lot of people with your videos

  • Tried the jicama once. I bought it presliced but it was pricey. I didn’t know about the parboiling. After seeing how few you could eat, it isn’t worth all that work.

  • American diets aren’t even overloaded with sugar… Its worse than that. Its high fructose corn syrup. The body doesn’t even recognize it as a sugar. So hello type 2 diabetes.

  • Man, I need your peeler, mine is so flimsy! I bought several of your recommended things from your store….thanks! Love this video!!!

  • First of all, you don’t need to peel the rutabega, just scraps the roots off and wash.Second, dip them in evoo and season to your liking and bake until more than golden brown. And there’s no need to pre-boil them.

  • I initially clicked on this video because I was interested in low carb french fries, but what kept me watching until the end was his awesome personality and amazingly handsome face! Thanks for the video!

  • I am a huge fan of rutabaga! Never tried them as fries, just mashed. Everyone else in the house just complained about the smell while cooking.

  • I made pnut butter cookies w monkfruit last week. I did not like them bc it gave me that cooling aftertaste. Then I made a batch w Swerve confectioners sugar which were yummy. But I found using different recipes w other sweeteners works out just fine.

  • Actually, if you get whole winter squash, they aren’t that perishable. I grow my own and they’ll sit on the shelf, so long as the outer rind is intact, for months on end. I can’t speak to the nutrient profile by that time, but they have by no means gone rancid or bad.

  • Thomas I purchased a device called VeggettiPro for $20.00 and works awesome at making my Zoodles. It operates manually, but it’s quick and easy to use!! I bought it at Bed,Bath&Beyond!! I highly recommend it. Thought you would like to know!!

  • Talking about Bolger I thought you would be talking about eat booger’s lol �� but I honestly do understand now but anyway all the veggies that were brought up in the video that I loved so much since I was a little kid but a couple of this that I really haven’t of before but I honestly do would like to try sometime

  • Erythritol spikes my blood sugar, and I’m not alone. It also causes horrible stomach pains and gas in lots of people.
    So far, stevia is the only sweetener that doesn’t affect my blood sugar but only if I use really sparingly. I realize my experience is not the norm but blanket statements like “Erythritol does not spike blood sugar” are misleading. Checking with a glucometer is the best way to find what’s ok for you.

  • Can you adjust your microphone? every time you turn your head away from your left shoulder it’s hard to hear you. I have to adjust my tv volume constantly to be able to hear you, great videos.

  • Zucchini pasta is ok but the rest are nasty. Those konjac noodles are not practical for a family. You’ll have to buy so much packs

  • Maybe some technique of drying out some ingredient then reforming into a fry could work, maybe a cauliflower paste. Meanwhile Halloumi cut into sticks and pan fried in a little oil on all sides until really crispy is a good alternative fry and near zero carbs.

  • I don’t know where to find Monkfruit here so I use Equal Naturals Stevia, doesn’t have bitter aftertaste so I’m fine with it for now. I used to consume 1/2kg of sugar a week for my coffee! ��

  • I rat A LOT of vegetables. One should not eat until your heart desires. Measure and count the carbs because the amount can screw up your hard work and planning. Be careful.

  • I like the spaghetti squash & it will stay a long time if stored in a cool dry place. I like the healthy noodles from Costco too. Thanks for the info!��

  • I’d love a video with a bunch of your favourite different carbs that you have when not following keto. Do you recommend sweet potatoes, brown rice, quinoa, gluten free rice noodles? I cook in healthy oils and eat a ton of green veggies but I’m always searching for healthy carbs to make my diet more healthy and enjoyable too. I’d love to see some Thomas approved carbs in a day on non keto eating!

  • Hi! I eat seaweed noodles instead of pasta. A tip: I don’t like the rubber taste but if you place the noodles in the pastasauce and then heat the noodles up (in the pasta sauce) then after a minute they become soft like regular noodles/spagetti.

  • Got My Steaks & Veg Stirfries & Spring Water To Start My New Keto Diet With A Few Cups Of Tea To Follow. I Want To Loose 2 Stone In Weight And See If I Can Reverse My Type 2 Diabetes. I Have Altered My Diet But My Weight Is Fluctuating From 13.3/4 Stone To 14 Stone & I Use A Home Exercise Bike Mon-Fri Twice Daily With Sat & Sun Off. I Live In The UK. I Can Stick To what I Have Mentioed. Any Help? Ow I Liked Chips With Stakes & Onions So I Ask Is Chips OK In A Small Amount? First Time I Have Heard About Simptoms That May Arise. I’m 71 Years Old

  • Thanks for the explantation. I bought some stevia here in Germany, it looks like refined sugar but it has 0 cal. it is 98% carb. how can this be?

  • My erythritol shows zero calories but 100% carbohydrates, I am confused, I can not give up drinking tea,I need a sweetner that is good for Keto diet I need to drink tea without breaking my keto diet

  • Been on keto and doing IF for about 8 weeks and seemed to have stalled out on weight loss. I’m 185 and dropped like 12 pounds but haven’t seemed to drop any weight in 2 weeks. You think maybe I’ve just hit a wall and will eventually breakthrough?

  • What about Monk fruit? I’ve heard that there’s a sweetener that is half Stevia and half Monk fruit. My aunt says it tastes great and I’m guna give it a try. I’ve gone down 35lbs in the last 3 months on Keto and I’m excited for what next year holds.

  • So literally all the normal fruits that are easy to get are bad. GREATTTT Lmao I love strawberries and berries but would an apple a day and a banana wreck the keto diet or not really?

  • cucumber is definitely not boring. I use cucumber slices as little substitute ‘crackers’ and put highly fat homemade salads like an egg salad or salmon salad or cream cheese on it…. These are amazing…
    I really miss celery sticks on this list…

  • I’m a diehard zoodle fan and just want to say they are actually EASY to make. I have tried many different types of spiralizers, one being the $100 kitchenaid attachment you mentioned and found them all to be cumbersome and a pain to clean — until I found a little handheld spiralizer called Vegeti for $10 on Amazon. This thing makes zoodles almost effortlessly and it requires no electricity. I make zoodles a couple times a week now!

  • Hey Thomas. Great videos as usual. I have a request. Can you please cover the topic of diet for those who are not as active? I understand that it’s “easy” for people to do burpees, etc in their homes during the apocalypse but generally, most people are not very active right now. Keto and/or mediterranean keto might be helpful? Or maybe something better? Less calories? Vegetarian? Thanks, and always great to see your videos. You are a daily inspiration.

  • Any Plants eatible plants with Seeds are considered FRUITS! EXZAMPLES are. 1, AVOCADOS. 2,BUTTER NUT SQUASH. 3, CUCUMBERS. 4 EGG PLANTS OR.

  • I am diet also because I’m fat I am eating everyday cucumber,bell pepper,avocado,carrots,celery then banana I am remove myself rice,sweet,sode and salt

  • I have found black bean pasta is delicious, but it is difficult to find. Plus it looks like small licorice whips.�� However, I have gotten beyond worrying about that; it tastes just FINE! I have found them before at Costco, but recently it has been disappearing from there. Maybe if enough people request them, they will come back.

  • I actually really like zoodles I started using them as a pasta replacement prior to keto when I wanted a ‘sauce delivery device’ without the starch. I don’t use a KitchenAid attachment…there’s the Inspiralizer and Paderno (?) spiralizers which work really great and are around $30-$40. It’s actually worth it if you eat them a lot bc the prepared noodles are around $8/package in my grocery store. My 2 y.o. Also really likes to watch the veggie turn into ribbons which is an added bonus.

  • i dont consider olives, avocados, or tomatoes to be fruit. they may be from a scientific point of view, but from a nutritional point of view, avocados are far more like nuts, while tomatoes are far more like vegetables. far more importantly, though, was one of the very last things that the lady in the video said here, namely that nutritionally, one does not really need fruits, that vegetables already have all the nutrients that fruits have, but with the added advantage that vegetables are not considered to be a form of sugar the way fruits are. still, there remains a part of me that thinks, “how can fruit possibly not be healthy to eat?” it seems to defy common sense

  • Can you make a video on whether if creatine is good or bad for the immune system? There seems to be a fair amount of confusion surrounding it.

    Herbal supplements have existed for thousands of years and can be traced over several different cultures. For now. Herbs are now used to cure diabetics, herpes, chronic pain, asthma,hepatitis b, cancer, ALS, Ovarian Cyst and even  GENITAL HERPES. I like herbs so much. Most of the time, the injection and the drug are only a loss of duration. I was cured of GENITAL HERPES  last year with the use of herbs, I suffered from GENITAL HERPES  for 13 years, but with the help of DR. Hazim Usman  Herbal Medicine, I was cured in a few weeks of using the herbs he sent me by UPS Service Delivery. I don’t know the kind of health problem you are facing right now, but I assured you that you will be cured if you contact Dr. Hazim Usman and explain your problem to him, that the issues will resolve in a few weeks, contact Dr. Hazim Usman via his e-mail address:-( [email protected] )-or reach him via

  • I love zoodle primavera. I use the lowest carb pizza sauce I can find, ten times less sugar than regular jar sauce which I won’t use.

  • For me, Maize(corn) rice is the better substitute. It only contains 86 cal per 100 grams. While white rice contains 130.
    I know its effective for losing weight coz I eat maize rice for 2 years living in the province. That’s the fittest I have ever been. Lol im back to my chubby figure now that im back here in the city eating white rice. ��

  • Hello, big fan of the channel. Doing low carb, and IF. I just came across this article. Any thoughts? https://www.runnersworld.com/news/a26907351/low-carb-diet-atrial-fibrillation/?utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=socialflowFBRW&utm_medium=social-media

  • What about eggplant? Here in south Louisiana a lot of restaurants have fried eggplant sticks on their menu as an appetizer. As the others in the demonstration the eggplant is best fresh and hot. Thanks

  • Studies show that eating starfruit can have a harmful (toxic) effect for people who have kidney disease…. This toxic substance is called a neurotoxin. People with healthy, normal kidneys can process and pass this toxin out from their body. However, for those with kidney disease, this is not possible.

  • Rice is life! When is the last time you see a fat Asians lol. All this fat out of shape American eat noting but fast foods and you telling us that rice is bad for you SMH!!

  • i died from diabetis was brought back to life and told to exrecise and stay off sugar and for 5 years i am still alive…but i saw peter made an icecream with 10 grams of sorbitol and i had 400 grams and the next day i went into a semi tyred comea type lazyness i contributed to the ice cream.. if that had been sugar it might have been worse since ice crwam can have 50 grams of suigar i it so i dont have it any more until they lower it to 10 milligrams a thousand times less in my blood.. now heinz has similer bake beans but no where will they tell me how much is in the tin so i measure my blood and how i fel the next day but i feel they are not telling me the truth and my life depends on this.. thamnk you skeatesybubbygoddess 2020

  • Cauliflower really makes me unwell…mega pain from heartburn whenever I eat them. And Cucumber is just as bad, although I can eat Lebanse Cucumber

  • I haven’t eaten pasta in years. I actually love zoodles and spaghetti squash. However, I will also use Healthy noodles from time to time. Have you heard of them? You can get them at Costco.

  • No wonder my blood pressure would still go up after rinsing my canned beans. A lot of the sodium must be inside the beans. I try to buy low sodium but they don’t have as many varieties. I wished they made no sodium added cans of beans. I don’t like making dry beans,

  • Is there any place on the Keto Diet for wheat pasta? I gave up “regular” pasta some time ago and found I actually prefer the taste of wheat pasta. I don’t have it often, maybe once a month. (That’s not a lot, right?)
    Anywho, I want to start the Keto Diet so I’ve been checking out your videos. Give it to me straight: Will I have to give up wheat pasta forever?

  • stevia and erythritol are your go to sweetners for drinks and cooking. try micro dosing to start. It took me awhile to get used to them. Now I enjoy them a lot more. If you want to lose weight and get healthy. The alternative is no sweetners. No sugar.. that’s the fact. Go for it..

  • I’m only here because I have bloating issues. And I read that having too much sodium can cause that. I’m planning on trying being on a low sodium diet

  • I’m browsing videos trying to find out how to make my food taste better. No added salt is starting to get to me a bit. But I will persevere

  • I always thought kiwi was keto friendly�� i eat one kiwi everyday coz most keto friendly fruits are expensive.i can only afford kiwi and watermelon��.ive been on keto for almost 5 mons and lost a total of 18kg.

  • I would definitely sacrifice a kiwi for 7 net carbs because of all the vitamins an other good stuff it’s packed with (I would look it up it’s too much to type)

  • Sorry for so many questions…looked at the chart on the website, allulose and erythritol both have a GI of 0 but allulose has Net Carbs listed 0-5 and erythritol is listed as 5, every site I’ve ever looked as has said to SUBTRACT these from the carb count because they DONT contribute to Net Carbs so why are they being counted as net carbs on your chart. Im new to keto and trying to learn. Thank you for any help!!!

  • Thomas, This is a great video! I was just thing about this topic. Trying to find a video on the difference between Keto-Mojo test strips. However, I appreciate all your education. Just a newbie here and feeling scattered but it will register over time..LOL

  • Also I made straw ice cream last Mon & again on Wednesday. l then made the pnut butter swerve cookies on that same week on Saturday. Ate a few bc u know, they are small. But then Sat night my head started spinning when my head hit the pillow. This was the same feeling I had 10 yrs ago from consuming foods & diet items made w aspertame.

  • wow I didn’t know people did all that to fry or bake turnips, but I guess you have to to get a certain look and taste. I made turnip fries before this video, and they were kind of reminded me of a potato style hashbrown. I cut them into squares and just put a little coconut oil in a shallow pan and they tasted great. I didn’t double fry it. They turned out soft, but tasty

  • How ’bout wild rice (long, dark, slender grains that burst when you cook them and are nicely chewy) or Chinese black (“forbidden”) rice? These are good, have nutrients, and have a lower glycemic index. Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

  • What does everyone here recommend for pasta sauce? Is Rao’s good? BTW, years ago I used to eat a lot of capers to get quercetin.

  • I appreciate that you actually put the information in the description. Some of us like to read instead of listening to it. I’ve subscribed to your channel.

  • youre american, everything is full of sugar and salt as youve burnt all your taste buds off so please dont try to educate the world

  • Thank you so much for this! Yes, xylitol is the one that makes me sick! So glad you mentioned that because I’ve been wary of using any of these sugar replacements, because I remembered getting sick once from eating something sugar-free, but didn’t know it was the xylitol.

  • Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that can cause diarrhea and other stomach problems. They must be paying people to push it because that part is never mentioned. Interesting that this is stated for other sugar alcohols but norpt erythritol. All over youtube people are pushing it.

  • i just bought stevia today and was disappointed when i got home and read the package. the first ingredient was dextrose. i don’t understand why. so 4 packages has 2mg of carbs. it made me mad.

  • Maybe the food industry should rethink their “added salt” and “added sugar” philosophy. Many people do not have the money to buy fresh, or even a no salt can of tomatoes at 3.39 a can… And another curious note: Heart disease seems to be on the incline along with Diabetes, for many years now. Back in my day…that wasn’t as big of an issue.

  • Not to fond of EGGPLANT…the taste and texture does not work for me…Sliced it coat it olive oil salt, pepper, garlic powder and roasted in oven….in other ideas for a more tasty flavor? I also made low carb keto Lasagna!

  • i dont consider avocados, olives, and tomatoes to be fruit, and i never eat starfish. so the only fruit mentioned here that i would consider are berries. and yet she said right at the end there that vegetables have all of the nutrients that fruit has, so that really, one can avoid fruits altogether and yet stay healthy

  • I still think the best tasting and simple sweetener out there is Lakanto Monkfruit, 0 cal, 0 glycemic, 0 carbs, and 2 ingredients, non-gmo Erythritol, and the natural Monkfruit, that’s it.

  • I have been researching Keto for three years and have done the Keto diet on an off. I did lose weight, but because of the mis-information out there, I didn’t do that well. People really are mislead by many websites and folks that are not really experts on Keto. I’m sure they mean well. Your website is awesome! You have provided accurate information and the recipes look awesome! I can’t wait to try some of your recipes. The content and organization of your website is excellent. It’s easy to navigate and all the information I’ve read is spot on. Thank you for the time and energy you’ve put into informing so many people about your story and providing a platform for others to succeed. I also appreciate the fact that you emphasize using clean (organic) ingredients. That matters! Keep up the great work!!!

  • Im on day 12 KETO I love sugar in my coffee and teas. So I’m trying STEVIA and MonkFruit and I’m loving it. Although I noticed I need more of the MonkFruit to taste it.

  • Love your content and have just subscribed. Just FYI, Daikon radish is NOT pronounced, DACKI-ON, it’s pronounced DYE-CON, (my husband is Japanese). Your welcome, haha…much love from Down Under.

  • Best to stay away from all “sweeteners”, period. I have been on a sugar-free diet for some months now. I had some protein powder with sucralose yesterday and I had a serious reaction to it. Blood sugar went THROUGH THE ROOF, I felt nauseous and very sleepy, and the rest of the day I felt like I was hungover from drinking. Never doing that again. Nearly all artificial (read, NOT NATURAL) sweeteners are devastating to your gut bacteria, and they can raise blood level and insulin more than real sugar. Stay away.

  • Not liking any of that alternatives, I just eat pasta if I want it to once in a while and get over my craving. I craved pasta maybe three times a year or so.

  • Let’s start the week off right, with some PASTA… alternatives that are LOW CARB!! Thanks for watching the video and supporting the CHANNEL!! Don’t forget to LIKE ����the video!! If you have any questions and/or ideas for future videos, drop them in the COMMENTS below!! ����

  • Just like I love a variety of taco shells (fried, crunchy, soft, lettuce wraps, etc.), I also love floppy fries! A great fry is great whether it’s floppy, crispy, steak fries, shoe string, or whatever. Just depends on my mood. Don’t knock the flop

  • You can’t put on weight from pasta! It’s just wheat! What will cause weight gain is oily pasta sauces. Thomas is just here to push products you don’t need. Fat makes you fat. Check out Durianrider’s channel.

  • If you really don’t like licorice, that’s why so many don’t care for stevia. But you’ve also got to know, sugar substitutes in liquid form are sugar free, however once its made to a powder, it can add carbs and sugar. The powder used to make the sugar sub is what you need to keep an eye on. And if you’re diabetic, check your glucose, if it doesn’t raise my blood sugar, that doesn’t mean it won’t raise yours

  • I see you commented on, or ‘liked’ some comments that mentioned Sweve. However, I don’t see where Swerve is mentioned in the video.
    What does Ruled.me think of Swerve?
    Where does it rank?

  • Thank you for all the effort:-) have an important question.. What about using diet sugar thats made from Stevia? is that ok? I couldnt find any of the sweetners u talked about n my country except for stevia which is rare here and doesnt even taste good:(
    the one I have is Candrel:

  • I love Natural heaven’s angel hair �� ��and Miracle noodles I’ve been buying miracle noodles for over a year I’m a type one diabetic on Keto

  • I love splenda natural!
    The best in my opinion.
    2 tablespoons acv
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    30 oz water
    1 packet spenda natural

  • We live fulltime in a motorhome and because we have a small refrigerator, I can’t stock up so much on fruits and vegetables, so I buy frozen and fresh, is it alright on keto to do that?

  • I am wondering about taking granulated sugar subs and making powdered sugar. I have found several that call for corn starch. Is it necessary? Could you use Psyllium Husk or Xanthan Gum
    instead of Corn starch? Is it a one to one if so?
