Here are some good tips to help you if you’re just getting started. Hope it helps:)!
Keep it simple. Download Carb manager app and don’t forget to take your electrolytes! and don’t waste your money to buy keto pills!
No fruit, unless it’s berries in moderation
No milk as it’s loaded with sugar. ( unsweetened almond milk is recommended.)
Meat, cheese, eggs, vegetable, nuts, and healthy fats. It’s simple. Stick to that, and you should be ok!
Vegetables that should be avoided are :
Carrots – can be used in moderation, just don’t go over board.
They are full of starches and not recommended.
Make sure to drink half your body weight In oz of water as well if you aren’t getting the adequate amount of water it can be bad for your kidneys! This applies for all forms of keto.
Do not forget your electrolytes, they are needed daily.
A good form of electrolytes is:
Pink Himalayan salt added to your food
Strict keto – counts all macros, does not eat processed foods.
Dirty keto – doesn’t track all macros, still eats processed foods, as long as they are on plan
Macros are a break down of the calories you intake for the day. Which should be :
Carbs are a limit – try not to go over your carb limit.
Fat is a lever – you don’t have to meet your fat macro, it’s simply there to help you get full.
Protein is a goal- try your best to reach your protein goal, but try not to go over. Excessive amounts of protein can cause you to stall in weight loss.
Anything other than this food group selection would be considered low carb. Also, if you are in ketosis, and eat outside of this food group not only could it take you out of ketosis, but it could spike your blood sugar! Which can make you sick.
Hope this helps. 😊
