Fiber is an important part of your diet no matter what healthy lifestyle you're following. After all, it's what helps regulate the body's sugars, so you should continue eating fiber-rich foods when you're coming off keto. "Choose whole food carbohydrates that are rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals," Larsen says. "Some examples are sweet potatoes, brown rice, quinoa, berries, and apples. Including foods with fiber in your diet can help to prevent a high blood sugar spike and weight regain while transitioning off the keto diet."
By eating high-fiber foods, you'll also help curb some of the intense hunger pangs that come with reintroducing carbs when you stop the keto diet. Larsen explains that carbs low in fiber tend to digest far quicker, making you hungry more frequently. "Fiber is not fully absorbed by our body, so it moves slowly through the digestive system, helping us to feel full for longer," Larsen says.
