The ketogenic diet has grown to become one of the most popular diets in the last couple years and was even the most Google’d diet in 2018, but what if we were to tell you that you could be making some major keto mistakes?
Whether you’re just starting your keto journey or are experienced with the diet, it’s important to make sure you’re doing more than just avoiding carbs or all this hard work, time, and money could be costing you more than you know.
Today we’re going to cover some of the most common keto mistakes and what you can do to make sure you don’t have to ever worry.
As silly as it sounds, most people end up consuming more carbs than they realize simply because they didn’t know. These are what we call “mystery carbs” and they are usually hidden in foods like condiments and sauces.
So next time you’re browsing the aisle, double check the label to make sure there’s no hidden sugars or carbs. Even though it may say no added sugar doesn’t mean there isn’t any at all.
Fat, Fat, and More Fat
This is a tricky one and that’s because a lot of people on the keto diet aren’t eating enough healthy fats as they should.
The right amount of healthy fats, like MCT Oil, is important while on keto because it helps suppress appetite and cravings, keeps your body in ketosis and allows your body to burn more fat.
Count Your Calories
Another big misconception about the keto diet is that you can eat as much as you want, if it’s all healthy fats. Unfortunately, that isn’t entirely accurate.
Although healthy fats should make up most of your diet, if you consume more calories than you’re able to burn, your body will still store those extra calories as body fat no matter what. So, unless you’re planning on hitting the gym heavy that day, we’d suggest being aware of how many calories you’re consuming during the day.
Adding a healthy, keto friendly Meal Replacement to your diet can help keep track of your calorie intake and ensure you’re not over consuming on excess calories.
All About That H20
We all know how important water is for a healthy functioning body, but you’d be surprised at how many people don’t drink enough water. Especially on the keto diet, water is crucial to help burn fat since it helps keep your metabolism active and promotes weight loss.
A Good Nights Rest
Similar to drinking enough water, you also should make sure you’re getting sleep, too. Giving your body the right amount of rest will help keep your metabolism active and even burn body fat while you sleep.
Although these mistakes are common, don’t let yourself become discouraged. At one time or another, we’ve all made a mistake during our journey and it’s okay. Getting yourself on the right track is what makes the difference.
