First of all, I know it can seem overwhelming initially. However, once you understand the Keto lifestyle it is very simple.
There is a great book for beginners here that you might want to pick up. It is a really great resource to help get you started on this Keto journey.
I even spotted the Keto Crock Pot Cookbook.
It’s a lot to take in but basically the ketogenic diet is a diet high in fat with healthy fats for weight loss. The diet calls for a lot of nut butters, peanut butter and low or no net carb snacks called fat bombs.
You will also want to keep things sugar free. Oils like coconut oil, olive oil and mct oil are used.
A lot of recipes call for cheese or cream cheese. Almond flour or pork rinds can be used for a coating or batter that fits into the ketogenic diet.
Once you get used to this diet, many report that it becomes a lifestyle and they really like it. As a result, many people report higher levels of energy and that they just feel better and have more regulated blood sugar.
Plus, weight loss is fairly easy while also filling full and satisfied. This is a key component as to why it works for so many.
If you want to lose weight, this is a great plan to try. With so many low carb recipes, it will be easy to stay on track with the ketogenic diet.
