Change is the only constant. And a healthy change is what you should be aiming for! One such healthy change is that of a change is adopting a dietary change. So, while you are at it, why not switch to a Ketogenic diet?

Adapting to the Keto diet can be a hard task, but certainly not an impossible one. Just like with any major dietary change, shifting to Ketogenic Diet requires dedication & patience.

The Keto diet effectively switches your body to ketosis, a state where both your blood sugar and insulin levels fall. This allows fat cells to release the excess water that they retain. As a result, individuals lose water weight, especially from around the belly, very quickly while on the Keto diet.

This change in diet has to be a well-planned change. One must be cautious with their food intake in the event of a dietary change. 

Here’s what you should avoid on a keto diet – carb foods containing a lot of sugar and starch. This includes starchy foods like bread, pasta, rice and potatoes. These foods are very high-carbs and should be avoided –

Soft drinks, candy, juice, sports drinks, chocolate, cakes, buns, pastries, ice cream and breakfast cereals. Also, avoid artificial sweeteners: they often maintain sugar cravings.

Bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, French fries, potato chips, porridge, muesli etc. Moderate amounts of root vegetables are okay if you are not too strict with carbohydrate restriction.

Industrial butter imitation with an unnaturally high content of omega-6 fat and additives. It has no health benefits and tastes bad.

Liquid bread. Full of rapidly absorbed carbs that have no nutritional value to them.

Contains a lot of sugar, eat it as a natural form of candy. Dried fruit contains even more carbohydrates. Coconut, citrus and melon contain fewer carbohydrates than, for example, bananas and grapes.
