If you've been on the keto diet for a while now it's likely you're seeing results, but perhaps you're not seeing enough or you'd like to ramp things up to receive more benefits. Sometimes it's hard to pinpoint where things are going wrong, but even if you're struggling that shouldn't be a reason to give up.
It's easy to make mistakes such as eating too many cheat meals or accidentally eating something that had more carbs in it than you originally thought. Or perhaps you're eating too many fats and not enough protein – it can be challenging to balance it all but it's important to get it right. Find the right balance of protein and fats for your body and you should see more results!
Mistakes can cause a diet burnout, but if you know the pitfalls ahead of time you can avoid them. Here are just a few to avoid:
As Jason Wittrock reminded us, it's important to be patient with yourself because it's going to take time to switch over from eating mostly carbs to a high-fat meal. Don't expect to feel like yourself right away because it's going to take some time for your body to adapt!
Speaking of fat, yes, there's such a thing as too much fat, but for the most part, fat should be thought of as your new energy source. Since you're drastically cutting back on carbs fat should be your newfound friend. Implement food sources like sausage, avocado, and butter even though you've been pre-conditioned all of these years NOT to eat these things all of the time! They're going to provide you with the energy you need.
Figuring out what mistakes you may be making is one of the first steps you can take to “fixing” your diet and successfully losing weight and reaping the benefits of ketosis. Good luck and you can do it!
