How Do I Start a Keto Diet?
The keto diet for weight loss can be very beneficial, but making any changes to our diet can be tricky to begin with. That’s why menu planning ahead of each week can be helpful. We suggest using the weekend to write down your meals for the coming week, and creating a shopping list of all the ingredients you’ll need before going food shopping. That way, you’ll be less likely to deviate away from your good intentions. Batch cooking keto friendly meals is also a good idea, so that you always have some ready to go in the fridge or freezer.
It can also be helpful to become a professional food label reader! Learning which foods contain low carbs vs high carbs will help you make choices more quickly, especially when eating out or grabbing food on-the-go.
Many recipe websites have a keto filter, where you can select to only see keto friendly meals, and lots of meal kit companies and takeaway restaurants have the same.
If you’re out and about or ordering food and you’re in doubt, choose burgers minus the buns and chips or order a steak or grilled fish dish, and swap the potatoes or rice for extra non-starchy vegetables.
