2-STEPS AND 7-DAYS EASY START TO KETO



Getting started on a ketogenic diet need not be complicated. Whether this is your first time, or you are getting back on it after a break, here are two simple steps to making a successful start.


I have used this quick-start method with several clients and what everyone appreciates is that it is simple and not at all disruptive to their present lifestyles. It requires no complicated counting of macros and no apps to download. Many of them report a significant change in the way the feel after this quick-start period, and they can see their weight finally moving in the right direction.


I challenge you to get started on this.


If you feel after this challenge, that you prefer your old way of eating, well that's ok. If you feel great as many do after this challenge, you can consider to continue with this new way of eating to begin to enjoy the numerous long term benefits of a ketogenic diet.


JUST 2-STEPS


Step 1 - Eliminate these carbs from your meals: bread, pasta, noodles, potato, rice and sugar.

Step 2 - Find a keto replacement for the carbs you feel you absolutely need to have. Eg. Keto bread to substitute regular bread, keto-friendly sweeteners like erythritol to replace sugar.


7-DAYS KETOGENIC CHALLENGE


Now, let us get started with our 7-Days Keto Meal Plan. There are three proposed meals in a day. If you feel like having just two meals, that is ok.

AFTER 7 DAYS


If you have followed the plan properly, you should feel some things happening in your body. Some people will experience low energy, but high energy later on when their bodies become adapted. Some people experience immediately high energy and fullness that they have not felt before.


How you feel and how quickly your body adapts to this way of eating is very individual. Generally, most people report this way of eating to be non-disruptive, easily adaptable and they feel a general improved sense of well-being.


If this has worked for you and you wish to continue, please do so and remain inquisitive and experimental to find the right foods for yourself.


For those who require some assistance in finding a long-term management plan for their ketogenic diets for healing, weight management etc., coaching is available.


I wish all of you very much success and great health. Have a healthy, happy and awesome year ahead.
