Do you hate counting #macros?
Me too, but it is sometimes necessary, especially for beginners. -
The first few weeks of keto, the weight will fall off extremely quick even if you're not following the #diet properly. -
After the first few weeks, usually what happens to most people is they hit what is called the "keto plateau" -
Which usually means their macros are off. -
This picture is a representation of the ideal macro percentages for keto. -
Don't let this discourage you. You don't have to be perfect all the time. In fact you rarely are going to be perfect..
Once you have been doing this for a while it will be easy to know what to eat and what not to eat too much of. -
Good luck and keep burning that #fat
My best low carb pancake yet!
I know it's the weekend but don't go ruining all your hard work. -
It's been a long week and you have stuck to your diet and weight loss plan. -
Keep it up!
Are you getting enough salt?
On a ketogenic diet, you should be getting double the average amount of salt that the U.S. dietary guidelines recommend.
Nearly 5,000 milligrams of salt per day to be exact. -
Not getting enough salt during the early stages of entering ketosis could cause the "keto flu." -
So salt each meal moderately!
I don't know about you but I like salt.
Slipped up and ate carbs this weekend? -
No big deal just get right back on the wagon. One day of bad eating won't wreck your diet. -
If you weigh yourself the next day after eating terrible you will probably have gained 8 pounds. -
Don't freak out and completely give up. -
The weight gain is just water your body retained. -
But if you get back on track, losing the extra weight you put on will only take a couple of days.
Then you can be back to burning fat.
This is perfect!
The California burger (avocado bacon and cheese) lots of healthy fat in this meal.
You have to mix it up and find different combinations of things on a low carb diet.
Most people never try to learn new recipes or experiment with cooking at all. -
I'm guilty of this myself I tend to eat the same stuff over and over again no matter if I'm dieting or not. -
This will lead to failure in the long run because you will feel deprived. -
Almost any food you like there is a low carb version.
Even with his diet being inconsistent he dropped 26lbs.
Over the past few months.
If you stay consistent this can happen so much faster for you. He is still far from his goal but we're confident he will get there. -
If you want to lose weight and get your body fat percentage down cut the carbs out. -
Keto isn't the only way to lose weight but it has been the best-tasting diet and easiest to follow.
I would like to know what peoples thoughts are on this one? -
Drop comment below.
Buffalo wild wings B.O.G.O you can count me in. -
There are still some pretty good options for fast food on a low carb diet.
It can be repetitive but if you actually survey what you eat now, you will realize that you eat similar things. It's probably a short list so why not eat in a way that helps you look good and feel great?
Remember when you're talking about losing weight, diet is king. -
You can't outwork a bad diet.
One week of keto and our guy is down six pounds.
It's not complicated anyone can do it.
He didn't count calories or track his macros.
Just a little fasting and cutting out the sugar.
If you didn't already know, cardio is key to burning fat.
"Hiit" cardio specifically
Basketball is an amazing way to get your cardio in and have fun. -
You don't have to be good to play either. You just need sneakers. -
Find fun ways to burn fat
Dancing, sports, or a bike ride.
This was a delicious breakfast yesterday morning.
"Porky pig" 5egg omelette stuffed with bacon, ham, sausage and cheese! Smothered with sour cream and hot sauce.
This was a tasty little treat that had zero carbs. I hope they keep this one.
Keto doesn't have to be hard you can still enjoy a lot of good stuff and lose weight. -
Artificial sugar isn't great but neither is being over weight.
Two staples in my diet.
Artificial sweeteners aren't good for you but I have been steadily losing weight and I use these every day. -
People will tell you all kinds of stupid things like artificial is worse for you than regular sugar, which may be true. -
But one thing I know for sure is consuming regular sugar will not help you lose weight.
Cut the carbs and the "real sugar" out of your diet and you will start losing weight. -
I want you to lose weight and not hate your diet. -
So whatever makes it easier for you. I encourage you to do.
