Today's episode is a short replay of a FB Live I did on the top Keto mistakes to avoid. After 5 years of keto, I have made so many mistakes. These are the top 7 that I recommend you avoid:

NOT GETTING ENOUGH ELECTROLYTES

Sodium, magnesium, and potassium are so vital when starting the Ketogenic diet.

OVEREATING CHEESE AND NUTS.

It’s hard. I know. I love cheese. Who doesn’t? (ok, lactose-intolerant people don’t). The cheese is fantastic and very keto-friendly. However, overeating will stall your weight loss and bloat you. The same goes for Nuts. They are healthy, yes, but it is effortless to eat too many.

NOT TRACKING MY FOOD- AT LEAST IN THE BEGINNING.

Here is the bottom line, you will never know how many carbs you are eating unless you track everything. You may think that there are no carbs in a specific food but once you input it into something like My Fitness Pal and it says 10 grams of carbs per serving you may change your mind about eating it.


NOT MEASURING MY KETONES.

This one goes hand in hand with tracking your food. You will not know for sure if you are following the Ketogenic Diet correctly unless you measure. That is just the cold hard truth.


CHEATING AND EXPECTING KETO TO WORK.

Weekends, holidays, and events are always happening. I started pretty strict with Keto and then a few weeks later something would come up, and I would cheat.

Each time you cheat on keto, you immediately gain water weight. For me, the average is 5 lbs. It would set me back about a week and then I would follow Keto 3 more weeks and cheat again. You get the point.

NOT REALIZING THAT KETO DESSERTS ARE STILL DESSERTS WITH FEWER SIDE EFFECTS.

Ah, my wicked sweet tooth. I've been struggling with a sugar addiction all my life. Keto has helped a lot. However, I fell into a bad habit of eating too many Keto treats.

Yes, Keto desserts are much better for you than the processed, high sugar high carb desserts, but they are still desserts.


BEING AFRAID TO EAT FAT.

When it comes to top Keto mistakes to avoid, this was a big one for me because of my nutrition background. During my undergrad, I learned that fat is bad. Fat causes high cholesterol, heart disease, obesity, etc.

I was so afraid that if I ate more fat than I would get fat. While this is true on a SAD (Standard American Diet) which is high in fat and carbohydrates, keto works the opposite.
