Remember that Keto doesn’t have to be complicated. Don’t overthink how you should prepare your keto food. Keep it easy and simple.

 

As a reference, your plate should have 50% vegetables, 25% protein, and 25% healthy fats. It’s always good to have keto-friendly snacks stored in the fridge that’s ready to go whenever you feel like snacking. It prevents you from reaching for carbs and unhealthy food.

  • Transitioning From Being a Sugar-burner to Fat-burner can be challenging

I’ve always been into foods that are full of carbs such as pasta, pizza, and bread. But as I transitioned into the keto lifestyle, I’ve encountered challenges.

 

However, the switch to keto was worthwhile. I’ve gained more energy, better skin, and lose weight! You may experience challenges now but if you look into what you’ll reap from making the switch, you’ll find this all worth it.

 

  • Do Daily Affirmations and Keep a Gratitude Journal

While you’re on the keto journey, it’s a good motivator to keep a journal where you can write your progress and jot down the things that you are grateful for. It allows you to develop a better mindset. A positive mindset is another major key to weight loss. 

 

As you see your improvements, you’ll become more motivated towards achieving your goals.

 

  • Minimizing The Effects of Keto Flu

Keto Flu is an inevitable side effect of the Keto diet. However, there is a way to alleviate its effects. The key is to stay hydrated and replenish with water. You’ll lose a lot of water from your body as you go through Keto.

 

You should also replenish the electrolytes lost by buying energy drinks or making it yourself. A glass of water with a squeeze of lemon always works. That’ll help you experience lesser headache or feel less dizzy if you caught the flu. 

 

A night of good sleep is also important. It keeps you well-rested so you can tackle the day with energy. 

 

  • Don’t overdo the gym.

When starting keto, try to avoid doing strenuous exercises. You can go to the gym but do not push yourself too hard. Why not go on a calming, long walk instead? Go outside and indulge in the beauty of nature.

 

Overall, be kind to yourself. Achieving your desired results doesn’t happen overnight. It takes motivation, care, and commitment.
