Who is recommitting to their low carb / keto goals after falling off over the Holidays and to start their New Year?
I have some tips for you to help you get back on track to crushing your goals!
- Stick to less than 20 net carbs
Dramatically dropping the carbs will help you deplete the glucose stores faster. It is smart to stay away from keto deserts, low carb wraps and artificial sweeteners (natural sweeteners like stevia or erythritol is ok)
- Eat more fat than usual 🍳
As your body shifts back to burning fat for fuel you’re going to need to eat more fat then usual to avoid the cravings that are likely to hit by day 2 or 3. HOLD STRONG. Get past that difficult stage.
- Try intermittent fasting 🍽 or extended fasting / OMAD
Fasting is a great way to kick your body back into fat burning and deplete the extra glucose stores.
- Exercise 🚴♀️
Working out is also a great way to crush the glucose! Your body is holding onto any excess in your muscles before it stores it!
- Stay hydrated🧊
- Don’t give up and 🧘🏻♀️ be kind to yourself
Stress can cause a cortisol spike which can make getting back on track even more challenging, try giving yourself some grace, and moving on! You can’t change the past but you can move on in the future! Meditation is a great stress reliever!
- Eating extra calories is ok 👌🏻
While you’re trying to overcome the difficulty of getting beyond the glucose overload it’s ok for you to eat extra until you get to a fat adapted state again, if you experience cravings eat something good for keto like a couple eggs with butter and drink lots of water.
BONUS: if you really want to boost your success rate after a cheat try adding in 1-2 NAT ketones which will boost your ketone levels immediately and help you avoid the difficulties that come with getting back on track! (This is what I do!) It’s also recommended to consume high quality electrolytes like my fav Mito//plex)
