If you are new to keto, guess what?! You can have cake!
If you are new to keto, guess what?! You can have cake!
For as long as I’ve been an adult, I’ve struggled with my weight.
And to be honest, I didn’t care for my body as I should have.
Even as a kid I ate whatever I wanted but the really bad cycle came when I was an adult.
The bad eating then meant I’d get on a short phase where I was obsessed with losing weight, but that lasted until I lost it and I reverted back to the same way of eating.
But slowly over time, I started to become more conscious of how I felt during keto. More energy, more focused and weight coming off.
If you have a family or love cooking, you love your kitchen. But it gets a lot of use and therefore needs a lot of cleaning from the build-up of all that cooking. Who wants to do that part, am I right? No fun there. All those grease stains, spots, smells that develop over time.
I’m sure you’re hearing about the low-carb, keto or ketogenic diet. It’s all the rage. So you’ll probably hear the premise is to eat cheese, eggs and bacon you want. Really it is high-fat, moderate-protein, low-carb eating plan that could help you lose weight. It has certainly helped me! And all of these are 30 minutes or less! Win-Win!I always suggest checking with your doc before starting any plan.
Many people give up on budgeting because they think it is difficult or complicated. But flying by the seat of your pants not knowing what your finances are is scarier. Stitting down and figuring out what your income and expenses are can and should be done. It boils down to creating a system that works for you and that you can do easily and stick with it.
The Ketogenic Diet has taken the world by storm, and if you are new or considering, these clever keto hacks might come in handy. These hacks make the Ketogenic diet even easier to follow, and it can get you to stay feeling good and shedding some weight. What are the best flours to use, how to replace food items, meal prepping, and more?
Whether you started the keto diet to get healthy, lose weight or reverse illnesses these hacks below might come in handy. For me, the hardest part of a diet is sticking with it. Some days I want to stray away but staying consistent is what your body needs and where you will see the most benefits from. But, when you implement hacks, it helps make the diet process a lot easier.
Reach for cauliflower rice or spiralized zucchini noodles (or other veggies) over regular rice and pasta. It is a lower carb option that offers nutrients to fuel your body. You can buy both of these items pre-made at stores or buy a spiralizer for veggie noodles and a food processor for cauliflower rice.
You can find so many articles online that share all the types of foods to reach for whether you are eating at a restaurant or even fast food. You can find safe options to eat, that keep you on track with your keto diet. I suggest writing down the items you can eat and keeping it in your purse or even a note on your phone. Then when you eat out at your favorite restaurants, you instantly can see what good options to pick are.
White flour is packed with empty carbs, so when you go to cooking replace with almond flour or even coconut flour. These two flours are great for getting similar taste and texture as compared to regular flour. You can find tons of recipes that use these two alternative flours for favorite recipes.
When you are on a restricted diet, you have to think about what you put in your mouth. When you first start the keto diet, you might feel the effects of withdrawal from no carbs. When you do sit down to eat, consider healthy low carb options to help satisfy your cravings. While it may not be a huge dinner roll smothered in butter, but it can be a form of a treat. Find a healthier alternative to the food you are craving. Like cauliflower as the crust for pizza, spaghetti squash in replaces of pasta, low carb chocolate dessert, and the list goes on.
Consider packing your lunches each day, so that you know you have the foods you can eat in front of you. I like to meal prep for the week, but you can always make your lunch the night before. By doing so, in the morning you just grab and go, and have no excuse. If you were to say I will make my lunch in the morning, it gives you more of an excuse to skip making lunch and ordering takeout which could falter your diet.
I like to plan meals for one week. That way I have all the ingredients on hand, and it doesn’t leave me not knowing what to make. This helps me find that getting home and cooking to be easier than standing in front of fridge trying to think what can I make with ingredients I have.
When you can reach for those alkaline foods like kale, spinach, chards, and even filtered water. This will help you and your body stay alkaline on a regular basis. You can even buy a veggie-blend powder to mix in drinks to help ensure you are getting your alkaline based foods for the day.
Skip over acidic foods and drinks while you are on the keto diet. This includes items like pop, dairy products, coffee, alcohol, etc. These items will affect your alkaline balance which is very important to maintain on this diet.
Instead of just focusing on food, as that can hinder a diet, focus on other things. Whether it be reducing stress, getting more sleep, exercising regularly, etc. When you change your focus, you will find you aren’t worried about the limited foods you can have or the foods that you can’t have. Remember why you started this Ketogenic diet, and do all you can to find success.
Fast around 13.5 to 15 hours from dinner and breakfast and see if that helps. If you think that is too long, you can cut down the time frame, but many see excellent results with this intermittent fasting. Keto dieters find that doing a fast allows you to eat healthy meals in the window of time you can eat, and then not feel restricted during the other hours. You can drink water or anything that doesn’t have calories, but no food during your fasting period. This can be counted for hours you are asleep at night.
The Ketogenic Diet also known as Keto is one of the most popular diets right now.

Well first let me begin by saying that being an affiliate means that I work with a certain set of specific companies (such as Amazon), to advertise on my blog.
