Top 10 Things Every Keto’er Should Know

While some of these items are obvious, they can’t be overstated. We’re looking at you, #10

  1. 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!


  1. 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.

  1. 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!

  1. 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.

  1. Treat Yo’Self!

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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. Never trust a keto fart

  1. Truth! 🙌🏻 We’re all just human and ketoing ain’t easy!! Thanks for the humorous tips😉🙏🏻❤️😎😂

  2. Can you tell me if your snacks have sugar, gluten in it? Also, is there any way to get the snacks without pork products???

    1. Thanks for reaching out 😊 Our snacks are free of gluten. We occasionally do have sugar as an ingredient — for example, a beef stick may use minimal amounts of cane sugar during the preservation process. However, we only include products like this if the product otherwise has high nutritional value and quality ingredients. And we always ensure each serving is 5g net carbs or less 🙌 If you’re curious about other ingredients, please see the following: https://ketokrate.helpdocs.io/why-join/are-your-products-vegan-kosher-dairy-free-gluten-free-peanut-free

      Unfortunately, our team is too small to customize Krates right now, so we can’t offer our subscription without pork products. Sorry about this! You can get a better idea of how often pork products are included by checking out our past Krates: https://www.ketokrate.com/krate-club/

      Hope you have a a great day! 😊

      Great question, Sara! It’s fairly common for people to experience a bit of the “runs” when they first enter ketosis. Sometimes, an unsuspecting keto’er will mistake it as ‘just gas’ and well….you know where I’m going with this…

  3. I’m giving this a go because Amazon prices for things keto are just outragous. I signed up for a membership because of a youtuber cslled Ketoginja. Can’t wait for my June box to arrive! I’m excited to see whats on the box.

      Yay! We’re so happy to have you on the KetoKrate team, Laura 😊 We know you’ll love the June goodies and can’t wait for you to try them!

  4. I got my first box and I would like to order some more of the keto snacks I liked, how can I do that?
