Keto Diet: 5 Tips to Help You Achieve Success on the Ketogenic Diet Plan

I've been on a ketogenic diet for almost seven months now and like every lifestyle change, it can be a struggle. There are times I fall off the wagon but get right back on. I've learned that I can't stomach certain foods like coconut flour and almond flour. And while I continue to explore this way of eating, I've lost 20 pounds so far. So how have I managed to keep going? Here are my tips:

  • It's not a diet, it's a lifestyle change. The moment you treat it as a lifestyle change, the more willing and motivated you are to keep going.
  • Have plenty of snacks on hand. Snacking has never been so important to me before. I always have almonds, beef jerky, string cheese or berries on hand.
  • Never skip a meal. The moment you skip a meal, you messed up! Skipping meals will only make you more susceptible to eating high-carb foods. Meal prep when you have to.
  • Have a good-quality sweetener for coffee and sweet-infused needs.
  • Put time aside to cook. There isn't a market for Keto-packaged foods, so you need to cook, bake and prep meals and snacks at all times.

By keeping these things in mind I've been able to say no to everything I once said yes to.

What to avoid during keto diet - Sugars, Coffee, Alcohol, Sweeteners, White Sugar, White Flour, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Artificial Sweeteners, Cocoa, etc. Basically anything with refined sugars or high Fructose Corn Syrup should be avoided by a beginner. you should limit or eliminate all dairy from your diet (obviously). Even though dairy is a healthy addition to the diet, it should definitely be eaten in moderation.
