Looking for a lifestyle change?
Are you looking to make some lifestyle changes? Look into a new way of eating perhaps? If you’re looking to get started on a Ketogenic (or Keto) diet, then you’ve come to the right place. This post will teach you some of the basics you need to know in order to get started properly on such a dietary path.
Back to basics
Before you try to go too far with anything, it’s a good idea to know the basic stats of your body. Such things consist of things like: know your weight (fully nude in the morning before eating or putting on clothes, since this shows your true weight), height, know your hip measurement, basically know as much about your body stats as you can.
Do your research
Naturally from there it’ll benefit you to know the pros and cons with a keto diet. What are the pitfalls? What can you expect? It’s important to know the ups and down of any major life change you’re looking to make and this is no different. Make sure you’re on top of as much information as you possibly can before doing anything drastic.
What are your goals?
The next step should be to have some goals to aim for. Anything worth pursuing is worth having a goal or two set up! It’s not imperative to hit everything all at once, so be balanced in your planning, but again it’s good to have an aim.
Once you’re there you need to have a list of foods you can go for, you bunch of tasteholics you! What are some of the different snacks you can eat and not have to worry about? A lot actually: a variety of nuts (Brazil nuts, pecans, almonds, nut butters, hazelnuts, walnuts, planter’s heart health) meats (beef jerky, meat sticks, salami, tuna, bacon, sardines, country ham, pepperoni) – If you are someone who loves eating meat-based food, you should see this post and learn how to do it healthily – dairy (eggs, string cheese, cream cheese, pepper jack cheese, whipped cream) drinks (almond milk, cashew milk, protein shakes, coffee, coconut milk) and more!
This clearly isn’t the type of diet that doesn’t let you enjoy tasty snacks. So, with some of that known you’ll want to make sure you stick with those as much as possible and try to keep in line with the keto diet, if that’s what you decide to follow.
There are a lot of benefits of a keto diet; weight loss, smaller appetite, better ability to control blood pressure and the problems associated with that. You might sleep better, feel more relaxed, and you might have more energy too.
The keto ‘diet’ isn’t just about loosing weight, it’s about healthy lifestyle choices too. Have you tried it? We would love to know.
Me and the wife is trying this and we have lost 25 pounds lifestyle change is good.
I’ve been curious about keto diets and this definitely makes me want to search up more about them. I’m a medical student, so it’s also relevant to my own studies. A couple of my friends have talked about starting keto diets. I knew it was for losing weight, but I didn’t know you could control blood pressure with it too!
Thank you for sharing!
I’m not sure why you included a picture of things that aren’t going to be allowed on the ketogenic diet. Corn, rice and beans have too many carbohydrates for a keto diet. I’ve got some keto recipes on my blog. I also realized that I am not that hungry on the keto diet and don’t need snacks.
Otherwise, great advice! Best of luck to those on the keto diet!
I am trying to lose three stone at the moment and I have lost nearly a stone in five weeks. however I am just trying to cut out bad fats and portion size my plate .Eating nuts seems strange to me on a diet so will research the Keto diet and see if it is something I could work with
