Keto Zone Stuffed Artichokes

Do you eat enough fiber on the Keto Zone diet?

Using a ketogenic diet for weight loss and health means eating lots of healthy fat and avoiding carbs and sugar. But not all carbs need be avoided on a keto diet.

Fiber, which is essential for the health of your digestive system, is actually considered a carbohydrate!

This is why we measure net carbs on the Keto Zone diet. Net carbs are obtained by subtracting fiber from the total carbohydrates. Fiber is not absorbed by the body and therefore does not affect blood sugar.

Instead, fiber makes its way through the digestive system in to the colon where it is used by the probiotic bacteria in your gut. Feeding your good bacteria can improve digestion and support healthy bowel movements.

So try out this delicious and nutritious stuffed artichokes recipe today for a great way to get more keto friendly fiber in to your diet!
