After waking up, you might find yourself stumbling over to the kitchen to start brewing that morning pot of coffee. There can be many reasons behind this like allergy, too acidic, or as simple as taste. I use to drink coffee all the time but recently switched to the 5-hour energy shots. Are these little energy shots keto-friendly? Regular 5-hour Energy. Extra Strength. It kind of tastes like an unfrozen freezie. This energy shot also contains no sugar and no calories which fits the keto macros. They use sucralose as the sweetener which in small moderations is keto friendly. You can take the whole bottle in one shot for a full burst of energy or take half the bottle for a slight edge.
Extra Strength 5-Hour Energy Shots have zero carbs. That means you can easily fit them into your diet without affecting your ketosis, though they does contain more artifical sweeteners than natural alternatives like black coffee. They contain 30 times of your daily value of vitamin B6, which supports cardiovascular health and strengthens your nervous system. They contain times of your daily value of vitamin B12, which may reduce your risk of anemia and osteoperosis. Relative to foods like nuts and leafy greens, 5-Hour Energy Shots are low in nutrients. Enjoy them in moderation, but don’t let your indulgence push out other, healthier carbs. The primary sweetener in 5-Hour Energy Shots is sucralose, a common keto-friendly sugar alcohol. While some sweeteners are associated with negative health effects, more than FDA-reviewed studies support the safety of sucralose. A small number of people have found that sucralose can interfere with their ketosis. If you’re not sure whether your body reacts negatively to sucralose, experiment with 5-Hour Energy Shots in small portions before integrating it into your normal diet.

Fruit juices including freshly pressed juice, sodas, and even your favorite specialty coffee drink are all filled with so much sugar that they increase your likelihood of gaining fat while making it difficult for your body to get into ketosis. For this reason, we decided to put together a definitive guide to what keto friendly energy drinks and beverages you can consume and what drinks you should avoid on the ketogenic diet. Regardless of what diet you are on, your primary beverages should be zero-calorie, simple drinks like water, coffee, tea, and sparkling water. Simply find your desired beverage category for more specifics. During the first few days of carbohydrate restriction, the body typically sheds water and minerals at an accelerated rate.
