The Keto Diet

The Keto Diet

The Keto diet, which is low on carbs and high on fats, is restrictive, especially when most people follow the processed food diet which is high on carbs.

It requires the individual to throw away carbs, junk food, sauces, cold drinks, and starchy veggies while limiting fruit intake.

Starting With The Keto Diet

  • While preparing for this kind of diet, the first step is to go through the kitchen and pantry to get rid of the non-keto stuff, just to avoid any impulsive eating.
  • Then we need to make a meal plan for the week, including snack items.
  • Keep a lot of almonds, pumpkin seeds, coconut/olive oils, eggs, canned food and powdered protein.
  • Stock some veggies, frozen berries and broccoli in the fridge, along with coconut milk.

The Keto Diet Mindset

  • Keep reminding yourself that this new diet that is being followed is not a challenge, but a healthy lifestyle choice.
  • Understand that following this diet will start the body’s metabolic transition towards Ketosis, where the body burns fat instead of blood sugar.
  • You can have the occasional keto dessert and the glass of wine, avoiding the all-or-nothing mindset.

Keto Diet: Dealing With Friends And Family

While making any big change in our lives, we have to deal with the reactions of other people, especially when they are not following this kind of diet and have to eat with you. Ideally, non-keto options should be available for them.

If friends poke into your diet choice, tell them you are satisfied with what you are eating, or have figured out what works best for your body.
