No. Whole milk isn't very keto-friendly.
Whole milk has 11 grams of carbohydrates, with approximately 12 grams coming from sugar and 0 grams from fiber. This results in a total amount of 11 grams of net carbs. This makes whole milk ill-suited for a keto diet.
Consider the following keto-friendly alternatives:
Almond milk is a much more keto-friendly option. It has 1 gram of total carbohydrates. About 1 gram comes from fiber and 0 grams is sugar. This sums to 0 grams of net carbs, 11 grams lower than whole milk.
Heavy cream is a much better keto alternative. It contains no carbohydrates, and as a result the amount of net carbs is zero as well, 11 grams less than whole milk.
