Keto diet? Keto lifestyle is more like it: In a world full of carbohydrates, learning to eat the keto way entails a whole new way of interacting with food...including those tempting cheat foods. Here are some ways to keep your keto diet on track.
Use Protein and Fiber to Curb Your Appetite
Do you have festive plans for the evening? Before you head out, throw some KetoLiving Chocolate, ice cubes and raspberries into a blender, and add a teaspoon of chia seeds. The combination of protein (from the KetoLiving) and fiber (from the chia) will help keep hunger at bay.
Find a Keto Buddy
Do you know a friend or family member who is also committed to staying keto-strong? Then team up as accountability partners: Having someone else to motivate (and sometimes challenge) you can help you stick with it when youre feeling stressed or otherwise vulnerable to slip-ups.
Don't Forget Exercise
All healthy dieting plans need an exercise component, including the keto diet. That means at least 30 minutes of aerobic activity most days of the week, plus resistance workouts two or three times a week to build or maintain muscle mass.
Plan for Temptation at Work
Workplaces can become carbohydrate minefields when people start bringing in platters of cookies, cakes, etc., especially around holidays. Keep treats in high-traffic areas so they go quickly and arm yourself with high-protein snacks—such as nuts, seeds and KetoLiving shakes—in your area so youll have healthy alternatives.
Stick with Your Diet by Taming Stress
It's hard to maintain the keto lifestyle when stress has you tied in knots. Practice some form of stress relief, such as meditation or yoga, on a regular basis.
Bomb Hunger with Fat
Fat bombs, either sweet or savory, can help kill hunger; the sweet ones are especially helpful if you're in a situation where high-carb foods abound. But remember that fat bombs are high in calories; if your'e trying to remain in ketosis and getting regular exercise, you shouldn't eat more than three a day.
If You Want a Drink, Choose Wisely
The best keto beverage is, of course, water, regular or sparkling. Other keto-friendly beverages include unsweetened tea, black coffee (with or without heavy cream) and unsweetened nut milks (or a KetoLiving shake if you want something more substantial). But if you something alcoholic, stick to one spirit-based drink mixed with sparkling water or one glass of dry wine.
