This article by Louise Henden is a great place to start and to get a further understanding of the Keto diet and how it works. These quick 4 tips are great advice and worth sharing when you are beginning on your journey on the Keto diet.
Tips for getting started on Keto
- Clear out your non-keto food and then restock your kitchen with keto-friendly options. You’ll find it easier to stick to your diet if you don’t have non-keto foods around to tempt you.
- Pick one meal to skip each day and you’ll only have to think about making two keto-friendly meals each day instead of three. Remember; keto decreases your appetite anyway, so you may find it easier than you think.
- Start off by eating unlimited protein/fat but make sure to keep your daily carbohydrate intake under 25g. It’s best to keep things simple when you begin and tweak your protein/fat ratios later.
- Consider getting some health tests before you start to make sure you don’t have any underlying issues to address like autoimmune conditions, gut infections or vitamin/mineral deficiencies. By fixing these first, you’ll get the full benefits of the keto diet once you start.
Remember you need to get enough sleep, manage your stress levels, and make time to exercise if you want to keep yourself healthy
