Is keto difficult in the Netherlands?

Date
Apr, 17, 2020

In the beginning, I found it very difficult to follow the keto diet in the Netherlands. And not only because there is a Febo in every corner. (btw, you can find low-carb options in Febo).
Not only because fries, bitterballen, ham-Kaas croissants, cakes, and bread, are so damn good here.

When I started keto in 2020, in the Netherlands, it was hard to find low-carb products.

I moved here from Italy, and usually, they say we have good food. Well, let me tell you, in my first year in Holland I gained 10 kilos.

This is the country of carbs. That’s why I had to find a good diet to shred forever those kilos. And, in the beginning, was so hard to find low-carb options. I started this blog in early 2020, as a way to unload my frustration and keep myself motivated.

Now it’s going better. I don’t know if something is changing in the Netherlands or the keto is more popular, but it’s easier to follow a ketogenic diet now.

You can find here all posts about keto in the Netherlands. And there are many. Meaning we have more choices now.

In 2020, these were the reasons why I find difficult keto in the Netherlands:

1. The restaurants had poor low-carb options

2. The supermarkets didn’t have a huge selection of low-carb products

Eating Ketogenic in the Netherlands it’s easier now

Now, I feel easier eating sugar-free and sticking to a ketogenic lifestyle in Holland. And I am positive that the future will bring more and more for us, keto followers.

Keto restaurants in the Netherlands

It’s me or do I feel that lately (if we are not in lockdown, of course) is it easier to find low-carb options at the restaurant? After all, Brasseries are so Dutch!

      Hi Diane, thank you for your comment. I gave a fast look to this web store.Many products are low carb but NOT Keto. Always check the nutritional properties of the products.
