I know I will be successful with it. I was able to create a video starter guide course that will walk your through every step of starting the Ketogenic Diet! You can access the course here: I feel the need to explain how this diet works. You are basically putting your body into ketosis.

The best way for me to explain this diet is with this example of a fire. A fire burns in 3 different ways. Kindling burns really, really fast. Coals burn for a long period of time. Carbs burn really, really fast. Protein burns at a slower rate but fat burns for a long period of time! You want to burn fat! Fat cells are like little stubborn balloons in your body. They love to hold their shape and resist change. When you are in ketosis and your body starts to burn fat it starts to deplete these fat cells.

They start to hold more water to resist this type of change until they can no longer change! Why is that important for you to know that? Because the scale is your worst enemy when you start this diet.

Your fat cells will hold more water even though you are losing fat. The very first thing I would do is make a decision to start this process and be dedicated to it. You will do more harm to yourself if you decide to eat high fat and still consume the carbs. It will lead to obesity. I had pretty bad headaches for about 3 days. I would drink more water than usual and I would also drink some pickle juice to help with this change.

Order some Ketone Pee Strips to test the ketone levels in your body. This was very important for me in the beginning. I was learning the different foods that put my body out of its ketosis state. Your body needs to remain in ketosis for this to work. I thought I knew the foods that are allowed but quickly learned that I cannot trust everything I read on the internet. I love sweet potato but realized after my test that sweet potato takes my body out of ketosis.

I trusted a recipe on the internet that told me this was keto approved! The other reason the strips were important was that I went out to eat and decided to have the cheese sauce with my meal. Talk about a learning experience! Now I know not to ever order queso or cheese sauce at a restaurant.

This may sound stupid and most may have already known this but I did not. This is exactly why the test strips are important to me during this learning curve. The last thing I recommend is to have a clear plan for your meals. You are the only person that can decide what meal ideas will work for you and your timeframe.

I do my planning one week at a time. I do my shopping over the weekend so I have everything ready during the busy work week. If you like to eat out a lot just determine which restaurants have foods you can enjoy and stick to those. I will put a small recommended grocery list at the very bottom of this post to help you get started on your first trip to the store too. My brain was programmed a long time ago that fat was bad. If you are local to me and want to borrow mine copy I would be happy to loan it to you.

The last thing that I realized I really needed was a protein powder. Broth-based bean soups, in particular, contain a hefty dose of fiber and resistant starch—a good carb that slows the release of sugar into the bloodstream—to make that full feeling really stick. All this for a measly calories per cup. Resist the cracker pack on the side in favor of a bigger soup helping. Beans are starchy, satisfying and caloric enough on their own, Rolls says.

Throw lentils, black-eyed peas or kidney or navy beans into a vinegar-based salad. Harvard researchers examined the eating habits of , people for 20 years and found that yogurt was the single best food for shedding pounds: Over time, people who downed more of the protein-packed stuff lost pounds without trying.

Meanwhile, a Nestlé Nutrition Institute study review found that consuming dairy proteins increases satiety, reduces food intake and keeps blood sugar steady. Top yogurt with fibrous foods like raspberries 4 grams of fiber per half cup or a cereal such as Kashi Go Lean Crisp Cinnamon Crumble 9 grams per three quarters of a cup.

Apples are one of the few fruits that contain pectin, which naturally slows digestion and promotes a feeling of fullness, according to a study in Gastroenterology. In fact, people who ate an apple as part of a meal felt more satiated and ate less than those who consumed a calorically equivalent amount of juice and applesauce. That means you can eat lots of this low-energy-density, high-satiety fruit and avoid feeling deprived while losing weight, adds Roberts.

Add apple chunks to oatmeal or salad, or slices to a turkey-on-whole-wheat sandwich. This movie-night fave is a low-energy-density food—for 90 calories, you could eat 3 cups of air-popped corn but just a quarter cup of potato chips. Sprinkle on some red pepper. In a recent Purdue University study, people who added a half teaspoon of the spice to a meal felt less hungry.

Sprinkle almonds on top of your bowl.
