Do you want to live a healthier lifestyle?
Would you like to lose weight but feel discouraged because diets don’t work for you? Well, ketogenic living is the answer!
In this blog post we will discuss how it works and most importantly WHY IT WORKS.
The first question that probably comes to mind is what the heck is a ketogenic diet?
There are different versions of this popular way of eating, but in general, it’s a very low-carb diet.
If you’re wondering whether or not this would work for you, let me tell you something: I’ve been there!
You might be thinking “what can I eat if all carbs are forbidden?”
First off, don’t worry because we have delicious recipes with healthy ingredients and no processed foods whatsoever as well as tons of practical tips.
Secondly, carbohydrates aren’t the only things completely avoided on a keto plan; sugar is also eliminated from your life (with the exception of some berries).
So here’s another: weight loss will happen much faster than with any other plan because you don’t have to fight your cravings anymore.
What about the cons?
Some people find it difficult in the beginning to give up all these bad foods, but I can tell you from my own experience that when you get used to a ketogenic lifestyle and actually feel good eating this way-it’s so much easier!
And yes, there are some side effects in the first couple of weeks that most people report such as low energy levels or digestion problems; however, they usually disappear very quickly after adapting.
Another one is what we call “keto flu” which includes headaches, nausea, and fatigue due to an increase in electrolytes (this will be covered soon).
However, for those who want to maintain their weight or lose it very slowly, I recommend this way of eating as well!
The reason why we suggest trying out all these different types of diets and lifestyles if you’re looking to get leaner/healthier is simply that one size doesn’t fit all; what works really great for some won’t necessarily work effectively for other people.
Here’s another tip: do not confuse “low carb” with “no carbs.”
Low carbohydrate foods still contain carbohydrates but in small quantities (around 30 grams per day).
So don’t feel guilty about eating them! And by no means should you skip breakfast; I’m sure you’ve heard this a million times but we can’t stress it enough-breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
If your mornings are crazy and rushing out the door isn’t an option, prepare meals ahead to make things easier for you as well as snacks in advance so that hunger doesn’t get in the way of making good choices!
In order to find healthy low carb foods easily, use apps such as “FatSecret” which will help you discover what’s available around town at restaurants or grocery stores nearby.
Another tip: check online first before going shopping because many products have hidden sugar especially sauces and dressings (keto dieters should read labels carefully).
Finally don’t be afraid to ask questions to figure out what’s best for your body.
So here are our recommendations if you’re thinking of giving it a try:
- go slow (the slower, the better) adding one new food at a time while eliminating another; this way you’ll know exactly which foods cause problems for your body!
- And finally, don’t forget that all healthy diets include whole unprocessed foods-and remember not everything labeled “low fat” or “fat free” is actually good for you because these usually contain high amounts of sugars/carbs in order to make them taste better.
There are so many benefits from eating low carb especially when combined with other lifestyle changes such as intermittent fasting and exercising regularly.
You will start to feel different right away as well as see the changes in your body so keep going strong!
And here’s a list of low carb foods you can enjoy:
- lean proteins from meat/eggs/fish,
- healthy fats such as avocado or
- coconut oil; all these have been proven time and again to help people get healthier and live longer too!
The ketogenic lifestyle is difficult at first but becomes easier once you get used to it.

The low-carb lifestyle is all about eating healthy, high-quality foods that are full of flavor.
It may take some experimentation to find the right balance for you and your diet needs, but it’s worth a try!
You’ll be surprised at what you can accomplish on this balanced plan once you figure out how to make it work best for your body.
In addition, everyone will love cooking with new ingredients like cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles instead of carb-heavy pasta.
