How to start keto is the first post you should probably start with because it’s going to answer a lot of questions for you. I know when my hubby convinced me to start keto, I had a lot of questions and doubts. But let me tell you, it works. I could spend all day posting before and after pictures of various keto friends I’ve made along the way but I’m cooking a keto dinner as we speak in honor of Valentine’s Day.
Yes, you read that correctly–there ARE keto dishes for holidays; even the holidays that are filled with delicious chocolates and carby (yet, yummy!) dinners. I’m making a low-carb white “pasta” dish (omitting the noodles and just using meat and veggies). I’ll post a picture of my Valentine’s dish on my blog (Wifey’s Blog).
How to Start Keto Tips
Drink Lots of Water
Before I link the article (which explains a LOT), I wanted to give you some tips to help get you started. Drink lots of water. If water’s hard to drink, try adding some flavored drops. We buy special ones with electrolytes because we sometimes do intermittent fasting (more on that later) so they’re important to have. Drinking water will also help flush fat from your system AND help keep you feeling full.
Avoid the #chemicalshitstorm foods AKA: “low-fat”. Fat is good. Fat is yummy. Fat keeps you full.
When companies strip out the fat from a product (the flavory goodness!), they typically replace the fat with sugar otherwise, the food wouldn’t taste as good. This is what my fellow keto’ers and I call a “chemical shit storm”.
Remember Meat and Cheese
There are a lot of foods that you can have on keto but until you learn the ropes, stick to the basics of meat and cheese so you don’t sabotage your weight loss. Green veggies are always a go, too! Eat lots of broccoli, spinach, zucchini, Brussell’s sprouts, etc. You can introduce new foods (such as artificial sweeteners IF you want to go that route and almond flour–which is VERY, VERY high calorie!) later.
