Filtered Water, mineral water, tea, coffee, raw milk if you can get it and it doesn't have bad effects, kombucha, bone broth, NorCal Margaritas, whiskey, burbon, vodka, tequila, blood of an animal you've hunted down. :)

i'd say it's okay to drink if you are low on carbs one day and need a little more or you are in a pinch and don't have access to any fresh foods or meat. so really, a once in a while thing. if i drink juice, i prepare it myself.

Try some Yerba Mate. Lower caffeine than coffee, great flavor, and smooth, long-lasting buzz. Been drinking this stuff for years and I love it. Can be bought from most organic grocers now, or online from such companies as Guayaki.

You need sub 30g-50g carbs to keto it up. Full throttle is ~58g of carbs (sugar!) before you even eat food for the day.

The biggest issue you will have with bagged tea is if the bags are bleached (if they are white, they probably are). If you don't mind investing in a plain old tea strainer, then go for loose tea. Tea wise, go for organic and stick to green tea,... (more)
