Low-carbohydrate diets or low-carb diets are dietary programs that restrict carbohydrate consumption. This can make shopping for ingredients at Aldi rather hard work for many keto dieters. To that end we have compiled a handy, printable and simple keto Aldi shopping list. Just print it out and you are good to go.
The Big Problem With Keto Grocery Shopping
The problem with shopping for keto ingredients and common foods is that foods high in easily digestible carbohydrates (e.g., sugar, bread, pasta) are limited or replaced with foods containing a higher percentage of fats and moderate protein.
For example meat, poultry, fish, shellfish, eggs, cheese, nuts, and seeds and other foods low in carbohydrates (e.g, most salad vegetables such as spinach, kale, chard and collards.)
Although other vegetables and fruits (especially berries) are often allowed. The amount of carbohydrate allowed varies with different low-carbohydrate diets. It can be hard to find all these foods at supermarkets such as Aldi. One time saver is to go to the store well prepared with a handy and easy to print Aldi keto shopping list.
Remember that low carbohydrate diets typically stipulate getting less than 40% of calorie intake from carbohydrates. Some diets restrict carbohydrate intake sufficiently to cause ketosis. It can be hard for dieters to create suitable keto shopping lists for popular stores such as Aldi which is why this post aims to help you out.
Also low-carbohydrate diets are not well-defined. The American Academy of Family Physicians defines low-carbohydrate diets as diets that restrict carbohydrate intake to 20 to 60 grams per day, typically less than 20% of caloric intake.
A 2016 review of low-carbohydrate diets classified diets with 50g of carbohydrate per day (less than 10% of total calories) as “very low” and diets with 40% of calories from carbohydrates as “mild” low-carbohydrate diets.
So when you are shopping in Aldi the question is surely how much time do you want to spend traipsing up and down the aisles trying to find what you need. If you do keto never hit the shops without a ready prepared Aldi keto shopping list.
