What Is The Keto Diet?

A keto or ketogenic diet is a very low-carb diet, which can help you burn fat more effectively. In addition to weight loss and management of Type 2 Diabetes, people have experienced many other health benefits by following a low carb, or ketogenic diet. 

But how do you start on a ketogenic diet? This post will help teach you everything you need to know about how to start keto.

How To Start Keto

Should you follow a diet plan? A meal plan for keto? Should you track? What can you eat on a keto diet?

So many questions. And really, so so so many answers–not all of which are based in science. 

I have tried to compile some articles below on how to get into ketosis by following a 4-week eating plan. This is a great keto diet plan for beginners. But I’ve also added next-level tips for those of us who need to get back to a keto way of eating. 

From learning about ketogenic diet foods–which are not diet foods at all the way you might have traditionally viewed them–to ketogenic diet recipes, and a support group, plus references to my ketogenic cookbooks, you will find all that you need for getting started on a keto diet.
