I recently surveyed women about keto challenges. Some were “lifers”. Others had tried and “failed” others couldn’t get past a weight loss “stall and others were just “bored” with the food.
Here are the top 5 challenges reported.
2) Staying with Keto when life gets crazy
3) Boredom with food choices
4) Snacks and managing cravings
5) Managing Social events
Can you relate to any of these? Keto isn’t difficult but it does need nuancing from time to time. These challenges seem like roadblocks at the time but they are really little keto speed bumps that can be avoided. There is always a solution to any of your Keto difficulties. It’s important not to give up. I received so much valuable information from my survey and as a result today I’m giving a few ideas about boredom with food.
My associate, Tina Krug, has a library of over 400 recipes that are all amazing. I’m linking a few of her Facebook groups for you to check out. You will no longer be bored with Keto food and be excited about all your options. She is my go-to Keto recipe person. I’ve found them to be easy and have a 5-star rating! Enjoy and get creative.
MY KETO TRUTHS
Always be prepared. If you always have keto products in your pantry, refrigerator, and freezer your chances of Keeping it Keto greatly increase. If you get in your car and drive to get ice cream that’s another Keto challenge that would need to be addressed 😊
Pick a few recipes and double them and freeze. The more grab and go foods you have on hand the easier life gets and you’ll be cooking less and eating foods you love. Cooking less makes Keto life more manageable.
Eat more food. Keto isn’t a diet of depravation. It’s not like any other weight loss program you’ve tried that limits calories and portions. We don’t count calories or portions. It’s such a freedom to eat until we are comfortably full then we stop.
Fat and protein are your friends on keto. While fat is a cornerstone of the keto diet, protein will help keep your blood sugar stable and keep you full. If you’re experiencing cravings, it may be that you’re skimping on one of these two essential macronutrients. When in doubt, especially in the beginning, make sure to have some high-fat and high-protein snacks around if cravings hit.
Drink more water. Up to 100 ounces a day. Water isn’t retained as inflammation it flushes the fat cells out. Drink Up!
