Keto tips week 2! Thinking of getting started on Keto? Totally confused by where to start? This is only for those who want to try Keto which is only some of us who visit this blog. Please don’t feel like you have to follow or comment if you don’t I’m just trying to help people who want to do it. I am not a medical, or health care professional so you definitely want to consult what my sons call “a real doctor, not a Ph.D. like my Mom”.
This is a short series on how to ease into Keto. Some of us want to jump into Keto cold turkey. Others might want to ease in. For those of you who are thinking of getting started on Keto:
You should already have given up grains, legumes/beans and pasta/rice/potatoes. This week you have three goals:
- Reduce fruit to once a day if you haven’t already.
- Go at least 4 hours between meals. Do not eat snacks in between. So you could eat at 8 am, noon, 4 pm, and 8 pm as an example. You need to keep insulin down. Eating causes insulin release. Insulin release = no fat burning. If you get super hungry, first drink water or sugar-free beverage of choice. If that doesn’t work, eat a fat bomb.
- Drink at least 64 oz of liquid daily this week. Use it to hydrate, to fill your stomach in between meals and to create a habit. Water really does help with fat loss.
That’s it! Enjoy your meat, veggies, nuts, cheese, cream, bacon, avocados, and other yummies as before.
