The keto diet feels a bit restrictive for some people. You go from eating fried foods and takeouts, to preferring home cooked meals. By making food yourself, you can better account for the macronutrients you put into your body. This means you have a better chance of adhering to the high fat and low carb requirement of the keto diet.
What this also means is your selection of candy to satisfy your sweet tooth would generally be limited. Picking up a chocolate bar at the local supermarket is now out of the question. There are simply too much added sugars in these bars. While it is important to learn what not to eat on the keto diet, you can still treat yourself now-and-then.
Not to worry – as we are bringing you some good news. There are many delicious candy recipes that are perfectly compatible with the keto diet. As long as you eat these in moderation, they can be a great way to treat yourself as you reach closer to those longer term goals.
