The ketogenic diet is a very successful diet plan. It uses high fat and low carbs ingredients in order to burn fat instead of glucose. Many people are familiar with the Atkins diet, but the keto plan restricts carbs a bit more.
Because we are surrounded by fast food restaurants and processed meals, it can be a challenge to avoid carb-foods rich, but proper planning can help.
Do plan your menus and snacks at least a week ahead of time, so you aren’t caught with just high carb meal choices.
Look for keto recipes online; there are quite a few good ones to choose from. Get used to the keto lifestyle, find your most favorite recipes and stick with them.
Here are the few items that are staples of a keto diet.
