I cheated and binged on carbs. What can I do?
Go straight back on track, eat low in carbs foods and don’t weigh your self. The temporary weight gain is because when you are eating more carbs, your body retains more water.
Try finding out what caused you to give up the diet and make some fat bombs to control your cravings. If you have trouble sticking to it alone, consider joining my Keto for Accelerated Fat Loss Community.
I am vegan/vegetarian, can I still do a ketogenic diet?
It’s absolutely possible to follow a ketogenic diet as a vegetarian or vegan, but it inevitably requires more specialized attention than a standard diet that includes animal products. A vegan diet needs for sure specific support with supplements.
I am allergic to eggs/ avocado/ dairy, etc., can I follow a keto diet?
Yes, you can follow the diet without any of the foods you are allergic to, or you just don’t like. Many people go dairy-free for health reasons.
There are no exact rules, and you can create your meal plan based on your current health.
As long as you are keeping the carbs at the minimum, moderate the protein, and up the fat intake, you will be in ketosis.
Do I need to work out to lose weight?
While some people have great success in losing weight without working out, including some physical activity can be beneficial for your health.
Moving your body will increase your body’s metabolism, and along with a nutrient-dense keto diet, you’ll see excellent results and keep the weight off for good.
Help! I’ve hit a weight stall. What Can I do?
A chaotic lifestyle with a lot of stress, poor sleep, lack of exercise can slow down the weight loss process.
Keep in mind that weight loss is not a linear protocol and the scale isn’t always the best measure of progress. You may not see any results on the scale, but if your clothes are looser than before, you’re on the right track.
All you have to do is to keep going and don’t give up. Make sure your macros are calculated according to your current status and watch out for any hidden carbs you may be eating.
