Hey guys today I’m going to be talking to you all about my tips to have a very successful and sustainable ketogenic diet. I am a nutritionist from Brisbane Australia and I also earn a blog and a gym called apron lift so I’ve been following a ketogenic diet for around nine months now to help reduce symptoms and improve my PCOS a ketogenic diet can be an incredibly powerful tool when it does come to battling some health conditions such as type 2 diabetes epilepsy Alzheimer’s and PCOS just to name a few I believe there are a lot of unhealthy ways to do heaters such as all the bullet proof coffees and all the processed meats and that kind of thing I try to avoid that style of cater.
jump into it my first point is to get a full panel of blood tests run every few months while you’re on keto and my second point is to get a jewel gluco meter which reads both your blood sugar and your blood ketone levels and you’re going to test that multiple times a day you can get those ketone sticks but after a while like the longer you’re in heater the less accurate they become so this is a more accurate way to read those levels point
So the way that I like to do this is make sure I’m getting enough salts with bone broth make sure that I’ve got lots of avocados and you can also have almonds for things like magnesium and making sure you’re getting that potassium to point three is to be prepared and make sure that you always have snacks or something available I tend to always have some kind of food in my handbag just in case I get caught out but you just need to make sure that you know where you’re eating and you can plan for it my four point is to choose less processed foods this is going to make the diet a lot more sustainable over the long term for you so opting for like your grass-fed meats and opting for lots of fresh vegetables rather than going for those local bars and processed snacks that are made to be low carbohydrate but contain sugar alcohols
just making sure that there’s these little changes so like the no processed foods cutting the sugars and ditching the processed snacks little changes bit by bit will make a world of difference point eight is to log your food you can do this in apps like my fitness pal or live some I recommend looking every day when you start and then the more you get used to the foods the less often you have to log I still like to log once to twice a week just to make sure that I’m keeping everything on track because with Keita it is very easy to accidentally under eat on your fats and you need to make sure you’re getting enough fats each day or you’ll be very tired
