Can You Eat More Carbs if You Exercise More on a Keto Diet?

Keto Diet Carbs

There are a lot of factors that need to be accounted for with this question. The short answer is it depends. It might be possible to enter ketosis while eating more carbs and also exercising a lot more. However, your ability to enter into ketosis will depend on factors like how sensitive your body is to carbs, how far you have adapted to the keto diet, and how much additional exercise you intend to get in.

There will most likely be some experimenting involved but if you are okay with the possibility of being taken out of ketosis then you could vary your level of carb intake and monitor what impact this has on the production of ketones in your body. According to the Healthline, most people will need to maintain carb consumption of less than 50 grams a day in order to reach ketosis.

Some people such as disciplined athletes may have slightly higher carb tolerance than the average individual. When adding more carbs, try to not stray too far from your current level of consumption.
