 Please use this PDF as a guide and instructions to get started. I suggest taking screenshots of each page while on your phone and then favoriting them by pressing the heart button so you can easily go back and access the guide from your favorites album within your photo albums rather than having to pull the group up and open the PDF everytime you want to access and reference the guide.  Commit to 3 days at a time and then continue to recommit to 3 more days, and so on. Our daily macro goals: 70% healthy fat, 20% protein and 10% carbs with 20 grams of carbs/ day goal. If you are nursing or pregnant or have other underlying health issues please consult a doctor before starting. Remember that you should also be drinking at least 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water each day. It’s also important while going into ketosis to replenish electrolytes. You can drink Powerade Zero, salt your water, and even drink a bouillion cube if you find you’re starting to get a headache or the keto flu (Google it if you haven’t already).  Create a free account on Myfitnesspal (MFP) and make sure to download the app on your phone. I suggest logging your food first thing in the morning or the night before. Planning your meals out ahead of time will help ensure you hit your 70% healthy fat, 20% protein and 10% carbs daily. Reminder that we are NOT counting calories and focusing more on hitting your macro percentages. When tracking carbs, keep in mind that we are looking at net carbs

(carbs-fiber=net carbs). Adjust your macro goals using these instructions to reflect 70% fat, 20% protein and 10% carbs: https://www.ruled. me/carb-tracking-for-keto-diet/  Check out and bookmark my “Keto Love” Pinterest board that has all of my favorite recipes: https://www.pinterest.com/ thelamberts2010/keto-love/ and if you’re on Instagram give this account a follow and check out her amazing recipes: https://www.instagram. com/cheeseisthenewbread/ ...and remember that regardless of the recipes you find and decide to try, it’s always a great idea to log what you eat in MFP to figure out exact macros and serving sizes for what you’re eating.  Take a peek at the VIDEOS tab on the Keto Kickstart page. I have videos explaining what I eat daily, suggestions on what to eat when eating out, how I read food labels and more!  To help you stay in ketosis (our overall goal of eating this way) I also suggest using the ketone supplement that I’ve been using to help boost your results.

wth is keto? A ketogenic diet (keto) is a very low-carb diet, which turns the body into a fat-burning machine. It has many potential benefits for weight loss, health and performance. A keto diet is similar to other strict low-carb diets, like the Atkins diet or LCHF (low carb, high fat). These diets often end up being ketogenic more or less by accident. A keto diet is designed specifically to result in ketosis. It’s possible to measure and adapt to reach optimal ketone levels for health, weight loss, or for physical and mental performance.

what is ketosis?

The “keto” in a ketogenic diet comes from the fact that it makes the body produce small fuel molecules called “ketones.” This is an alternative fuel for the body, used when blood sugar (glucose) is in short supply. Ketones are produced if you eat very few carbs (that are quickly broken down into blood sugar) and only moderate amounts of protein (excess protein can also be converted to blood sugar). Ketones are produced in the liver, from fat. They are then used as fuel throughout the body, including the brain. The brain is a hungry organ that consumes lots of energy every day, and it can’t run on fat directly. It can only run on glucose… or ketones. On a ketogenic diet your entire body switches its fuel supply to run almost entirely on fat. Insulin levels become very low and fat burning increases dramatically. It becomes easy to access your fat stores to burn them off. This is obviously great if you’re trying to lose weight, but there are also other less obvious benefits, like for example less hunger and a steady supply of energy. When the body produces ketones it’s said to be in ketosis. The fastest way to get there is by fasting – not eating anything – but obviously it’s not possible to fast forever. A ketogenic diet, on the other hand, can be eaten indefinitely and also results in ketosis. It has many of the benefits of fasting – including weight loss – without having to fast. *Information credited to dietdoctor.com

benefits of eating keto

The benefits that come from a ketogenic diet are similar to those of any strict low-carb diet. However, the effect might be even greater since protein is more restricted. This raises ketones more, and lowers insulin (the fat-storing hormone) more. • weight loss • reverse type 2 diabetes • increase physical endurance • control epilepsy • reduce acne • reduce heartburn • normalize blood pressure • calm your stomach • reduce sugar cravings • reverse PCOS • reduce migraine attacks
