It often seems as a difficult challenge to start eating healthy foods given our food culture and dietery habits but it’s not impossible. The keto diet has become one of the most popular methods worldwide among people trying to lose weight and improve thier health.
According to some research, low carb high fat diet may promote fat loss and improve glycemic control in people with type 2 diabetes. The keto diet may also help to improve cognitive function in people with Alzheimer’s disease.
As i have been able to maintain my weight loss the past 2 months, I notice a pattern for my daily meals that helped me stay on track! Here’s the exact keto diet plan I have been following.
KEYS TO SUCCEED ON A KETO DIET PLAN
— Drink lots of water for easy digestion and hydration.
— Eat less than 20g net carbs day if you want to get into ketosis. Net carbs are calculated by substracting the fibergrams ( or sugar alcohols in some cases ) from the total carb grams.
— Purchase some ketostix ( products use to detect ketones from your urine and alternative to test your blood ). They are not expensive and you can even cut them in half to get double the strips. Some people say they don’t matter, but when you are suffering as much as you will be in the first few days, it’s nice to get the validation that it’s working.
