While some of these items are obvious, they can’t be overstated. We’re looking at you, #10
Everyone Ketos differently
Strict Keto, Lazy Keto, Dirty Keto — it’s all Keto at the end of the day. Heck, even here at KetoKrate, no two Keto’ers are exactly alike. Your journey is uniquely yours, and the truth is that no matter how much they holler, the Keto police can’t actually arrest you. Do what works for you!
Your body isn’t Amazon Prime. It’s going to take more than 2 days to get results.
Despite the sensational stories and dramatic before-and-after photos we see in our news feeds, not many people lose 20+ lbs a month. If you’re a self-proclaimed slow loser, keep calm and Keto on. Comparing your progress to others will only distract or discourage you.
Success isn’t a straight line
There are going to be bumps in the road and times where you will feel discouraged. Remember you are worth the effort!
Take progress pictures even if you hate them!!
It’s easy to lose track of the bigger picture when your only focus is the number on the scale. Keeping track of non-scale victories — like progress photos, measurements, and how you feel — will help you look back and see how far you’ve come.
A stash of Keto treats can help you avoid carbie cheats. There are hundreds of recipes and snack food alternatives out there now. Find them here.
We all slip up. The important thing is to get up and keep going!
No need to beat yourself up over it. Sometimes you fall and a cupcake lands in your mouth. Chalk it up to physics and move on.
It’s okay to say, “No thank-you,” when offered carbie foods.
If you don’t want to bring up the word “Keto,” say you’re insulin resistant. No one asks questions when you say it that way.
If you feel like junk, you probably need electrolytes.
Keto’ers lose water faster than a bucket with a hole in it. This is due to something called lipolysis. When fat breaks down, it converts into carbon dioxide, ATP, and water. The carbon dioxide is expelled when breathing, ATP is the energy currency our body uses, and the water is released by going to the bathroom more. Every time you use the bathroom, you are losing electrolytes, and with nature calling more often than a crazy-ex, it’s important to replenish them.
Not everyone is going to accommodate your dietary requirements and that’s okay.
You’ve got this. Count on yourself to pack Keto snacks ahead of time, and you’ll never be disappointed.
