Transitioning into a low carb diet is not easy for most people. So I listed these 7 practical ways on how to start a low carb diet the right way.
Every person has a different body. Keto diet works for me, but may not work you.
Begin by completely cutting carb foods like sugar and other processed food. Gradually increase fat intake to encourage weight loss and body adjustment.
Carb flu are possible symptoms like dizziness and electrolyte imbalance in the first weeks of low carb diet. Drink at least 2 L of water a day with lemon and salt.
Let everyone know that you are in a low carb diet plan so they are informed that you will be eating low carb foods in your next dinner party.
Avoid cheating in your first month because your body is adjusting to a natural state of burning fats. Eating high sugar can interrupt this process.
I found myself overeating meat and cheese in my first month of low carb diet. My hunger balanced out when I increased other low carb meals such as veggies.
After 2-4 weeks of low carb, your body will have low blood sugar and use fat as fuel. This is the perfect time to do fasting to correct hormonal imbalance.
