 With meat, you want to watch out for anything that has been pre-marinated or comes with any sauce, these are usually filled with sugar and will not be zero carbs. So make sure to check your labels. And then we have and with bacon more often than not there is added sugar as a preservative. Now if there is less than one gram that's not really worth fussing over but some brands will have more added.

Now sauces will vary greatly depending on the brand. Most generic brands have added sugar and other ingredients you want to say away from, but if you can find the following sauces with no added sugar from brand such as primal kitchen and undivided food. They will probably be less than one gram total carbs per serve.

  • Butter lettuce
  • Pickles

  • Celery



Unfortunately, there are no fruits that contain less than one gram total carb per serve and that is my list of 75 food that contain zero carbohydrates.  Now I am going to give you my list of food that contain less than five gram total carbohydrates. So these are foods that don’t contain zero carbs or only contain trace amounts. They contain slightly higher but are still extremely low in the grand scheme of things and suitable for low carbs or keto diet.

Bonus foods with less than 5 carbs:


  • Asparagus
  • Broccoli
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Cucumber
  • Eggplant
  • Green bell pepper
  • Mushrooms
  • Zucchini
  • Olives
  • Coconut Flakes


Now I will give a special shout out to avocados as well. Because today we are counting total carbs and avocados do not quite make the cut.  However they are still a great food to include a low carb or keto diet and I do not think they should be avoided. Just because they are slightly over the threshold.
