Important Tips For Keto Dieting

When you are following a Keto diet, it’s important to stock your fridge and pantry with keto herbs, vegetables and recipes. This will ensure that you are preparing food that is Keto friendly and helps to prevent those pesky cravings for junk food. When you are hungry, it is very easy to give into those temptations and fill your cart with the likes of Cheetos and Oreos.

It is also important to focus on the amount of fat you consume each day. Getting the proper balance of fat to protein is essential. Protein can help you stay full between meals and will also assist in maintaining lean muscle mass while on a low carbohydrate diet. Keeping your protein intake in the range of 4 to 6 ounces per meal is ideal.

Avoid eating processed foods, chips, crackers, cereals, breads and other high-carb snacks. Aim to limit your carbohydrates to between 20 and 40 grams a day to get into a state of ketosis. It is very important to count net carbs (total carbohydrate minus fiber and sugar alcohols). Then, replace these carbohydrates with healthy fats such as olive oil, coconut oil, grass-fed butter and avocado. Make sure to add plenty of fiber with your food as well. Try eating leafy greens, squash, peppers and mushrooms. It is also important to drink adequate fluids. This can help to mitigate some of the unpleasant symptoms that people experience in the first week of the Keto diet such as headaches and fatigue.
