6 Basic guidelines to start a keto diet

The ketogenic diet (commonly called the “keto diet”) is a low-carb, high-fat diet that aims to change the body’s metabolic state into a state of ketosis, in which the body burns fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates.

To start a keto diet, you will need to follow a few basic guidelines:

  1. Reduce your daily carbohydrate intake to very low levels (typically 20-50 grams per day).
  2. Replace the lost carbohydrates with healthy fats, such as olive oil, avocado, nuts, and fatty fish.
  3. Increase your protein intake to moderate levels, as this will help preserve muscle mass.
  4. Keep track of your macronutrient intake and monitor your ketone levels to ensure you’re in a state of ketosis.
  5. Avoid processed foods, sugary foods, and most fruits.
  6. Make sure to stay hydrated and get enough electrolytes, as the body can lose salt and water when transitioning to a ketogenic diet. It’s highly recommended to consult your doctor or a nutritionist before starting a keto diet, especially if you have any health condition.
