Starting a Ketogenic diet can seem daunting at first, so here’s a simple grocery list that will help you get off on the right foot.
I’ve found that one of the keys to sticking to a Keto diet is preparation. By planning ahead and having ready-made foods available to eat, you’ll be less likely to break from Ketosis, and can more easily fight the urge to reach for that bag of chips or stop at the drive-thru, knowing you have a delicious Keto-friendly meal or snack ready and waiting for you.
Planning meals and snacks ahead of time will also help you incorporate variety into your diet, and keep you from getting tired of eating the same foods day after day. As delicious as bacon and guacamole are, you can only eat so much before starting to desire more variety, so plan ahead to keep things interesting.
