The Beginner’s Guide to the Keto Diet
What is the Keto Diet?
The ketogenic diet — most commonly referred to simply as “keto” — is a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that puts your body in a fat-burning state known as ketosis.
In ketosis, your body uses body fat, rather than carbs, as its main source of energy.
How the Diet Works?
When you eat a diet rich in carbohydrates, your body converts those carbs into glucose (blood sugar) which spikes your blood sugar levels.
When blood sugar levels rise, they signal your body to create insulin, a hormone that carries glucose to your cells so that it can be used for energy.
This is what is known as an insulin spike.
Glucose is your body’s preferred energy source. As long as you keep eating carbohydrates, your body will keep turning them into sugar which is then burned for energy.
In other words, when glucose is present, your body will refuse to burn off its fat stores.
The only way to start burning fat is by removing carbs. This depletes your glycogen stores (stored glucose), leaving your body no choice but to start burning its fat stores.
Your body starts converting fatty acids into ketones, putting your body on a metabolic state known as ketosis.
What Are Ketones?
The “keto” in a ketogenic diet comes from the fact that it allows the body to produce small fuel molecules called “ketones.”
This is an alternative fuel source for the body, used when blood sugar (glucose) is in short supply.
Ketones are produced if you eat very few carbs (that are quickly broken down into blood sugar) and moderate amounts of protein (excess protein can also be converted to blood sugar).
The liver produces ketones from fat. These ketones then serve as a fuel source throughout the body, especially for the brain.
The brain is a hungry organ that consumes lots of energy every day, and it can’t run on fat directly. It can only run on glucose… or ketones.
Being fueled mostly by fat, a state called "ketosis", has many benefits including that you become a fat-burning machine. It's perfect for weight loss without hunger burning fat 24/7 even when you're sleeping.
Because it gives you tons of energy, you'll basically never run out. Why the keto diet has become super popular in the last few years is actually not entirely new.
The foundation of keto is something old that you've heard about a million times.
It's a strict low-carb diet, it's a gluten-free diet, it's similar to the paleo diet and it's very close to the old and well-known Atkins diet. The basic idea is super simple and based on real foods.
But what really is the difference between the other diets and keto?
The History of the Keto Diet
if we're stripping carbohydrates make such good scientific sense why isn't everybody doing this? some people may wonder this is so different from the standard of care. Is this safe and effective for me?
In the long term believe it or not many cultures in the world have eaten this way for centuries.
One of them is the Masai in Africa. And they were actually studied, and what did they find they found that in these people their cardiovascular disease rates were incredibly low.
Despite the fact that the majority of what they were eating was fat. Actually saturated fat and their cholesterol levels surprising to so many we're low as well.
Another culture that's eaten this way is the Inuits. they've eaten a low-carb high-fat diet for centuries. And again what we find is an almost complete absence of type 2 diabetes and even incredibly low cancer rates.
Let's look at the history of a ketogenic diet in the US. Remember we didn't always have insulin, and all these medications for diabetes. So what did we do to help people who have this disease before insulin injections became available?
The father of diabetes treatment is considered Dr. Jocelyn. Dr. Jocelyn started treating patients with type 2 diabetes.
Before we had insulin injections and what was his treatment of choice he treated people with a low carbohydrate high-fat diet. And an interesting thing is one of the first people that he treated whose life he saved was his own mother.
With this method this is how we used to approach this disease. we got off track when we had so many medications that seemed like they might be easier, but we now have to go back and ask ourselves are they or did we know a lot back then.
Something many people don't realize is that a ketogenic diet is used as a treatment for epilepsy in children. When medications either stop working or are no longer tolerated.
This has actually been used for over a hundred years.
So the medical community deems this to be safe to be used in growing children. And a clinical study has looked at the growth and development of children treated with a ketogenic diet for epilepsy and have found that they grow and develop normally so this approach is used even in children.
The Difference Between Keto, Low-Carb, and Paleo.
Many people confuse the ketogenic diet with low carb diets or paleo diets. However, there are considerable differences of which you should be aware.
Keto vs Low Carb
A low-carb diet can be anything it wants to be, as long as it is low in
carbohydrates. And “low” is rarely defined. On a low-carb diet, you simply make random food choices that curb your carb intake arbitrarily.
Since there is no real number, you might still be consuming too many carbs. Most importantly, what the low-carb diet lacks is that all-critical ketonic state that turns carbs into fats and provides your body with a new and effective source of fuel.
This can leave you very hungry and tired.
The ketogenic diet has a specific ratio of carbs to fats to protein. This
manipulation is critical, and it’s why a low carb diet won’t work as well, if at all.
Keto vs Paleo
The Paleo is also a low-carb-type diet. It is based on the assumption that eating the way our cavemen ancestors did, i.e., meat and no carbs, sugars, or grains, is the healthiest type of diet.
There are problems with this reasoning. First, our ancestors never experienced the kind of diseases that we face.
The ketogenic diet is specifically a “healing” diet that is meant to benefit the body in many ways and help prevent diseases.
The paleo diet does not do that. Also, the paleo diet is based on eating meat instead of manipulating the ratio of fats, carbohydrates, and protein to achieve a ketonic state that uses fat as fuel.
The Ketogenic Diet
Basically, ketogenic is low-carb, but it is much more. There is a reason the ketogenic diet has become so popular. It helps improve your overall wellbeing in addition to helping you lose weight.
You have more energy during the day, and you feel sated and full, thereby reducing the cravings for unhealthy snacks. In essence, you are eating less, but better.
That’s what makes the keto diet so unique and successful.
The ketogenic diet is not magic pill made up by some gurus. Countless studies and testimonials are able to back the effectiveness of this diet.
It is ascientifically proven method that balances your body’s fat intake to help achieve optimal weight loss.
Top 5 Keto Health Benefits
Everyone and their grandmother keep hailing the keto diet like it’s the latest fat loss miracle around. This diet has skyrocketed in popularity and is seen as one of the fastest and most effective ways to lose weight.
However, besides just accelerating fat loss, there are many other benefits that can be accrued by adopting this fat-based diet. Let’s look at 5 health benefits of the keto diet.
Stabilizes your blood sugar levels
The insulin hormone is the main factor when it comes to weight gain. The keto diet is rich in fat and very low in carbohydrates. So, the diet does not spike your blood sugar levels. This in turn prevents unnecessary weight gain because excess insulin will not be shuttled off into your fat stores.
Type 2 diabetes patients will benefit from the keto diet because it will regulate and improve insulin sensitivity, while keeping their blood glucose levels stable.
The keto diet is very low in sugar. Any sugars that you find in your diet will come from fruit (only to be consumed occasionally), which is safe.
Since sugar is the real culprit when it comes to inflammation, you’ll notice that the aches and pains you were experiencing has miraculously disappeared.
Lower cholesterol levels
Once again, this is tied to your sugar consumption. For decades, it was believed that fatty foods raise your cholesterol levels. However, in the latest studies, doctors are discovering that most cholesterol is produced by the body and not a result of dietary choices.
When sugary foods inflame the body, it releases a wax-like substance to cover and protect the cells. This is the body’s way of self-preservation. This waxy substance is known as cholesterol.
The keto diet eliminates excessive sugar consumption by eliminating processed foods, etc. As a result, your inflammation drops along with your bad cholesterol levels.
When combined with the healthy fats consumed in the keto diet, this two-pronged approach proves highly effective for reducing bad cholesterol levels and restoring your health.
Most people on the keto diet report feeling more energetic once they are in ketosis. Since the body is burning ketones for fuel rather than glucose, it has ample amounts of bodyfat to tap into.
Not only will the body be burning up fat, but ketones are a cleaner fuel source too. Your moods will be better because your body is not subject to ebbs and flows of glucose.
On a normal diet, you’ll crave for carbs when your energy levels dip because the body uses glucose as a fuel source. You’ll not have such issues with the keto diet.
Appetite under control
When on a keto diet, since your blood sugar levels are stable and your body is fat-adapted, you’ll not be craving food all the time as is commonly seen with other diets.
Many people on a keto diet report not feeling hungry throughout the day because the body always has a source of fuel.
In fact, drinking a coffee in the morning is enough to keep them going until late afternoon.
Once the keto diet suppresses ghrelin (your hunger hormone), you’ll be less likely to overeat and your weight will drop easily.
What can I eat on the Keto Diet?
While on the keto diet, most of your diet will consist of foods high in fats coupled with a measured intake of proteins and low carbohydrate intake. Some of the food categories allowed in this diet include:
Poultry: Free-range Cornish hen, quail, goose, pheasant, chicken, duck, and turkey.
Fish and Seafood: Cod, tuna, scrod, anchovies, mackerel, flounder, catfish, trout, mahi-mahi, halibut, sole, sardines, salmon, halibut, snapper, and calamari. Always opt for wild caught fish to avoid toxins present in commercially reared fish.
Grass-fed Meat: These include beef, venison, goat, and lamb. Meat from wild animals are also acceptable; however, avoid sausages and meats that come with sugary sauces and those covered in breadcrumbs. Choose the chunks of meat with more fat since they contain less protein and more fat.
Pork: Boston butt, pork chops, ham pork, and loin. When choosing ham, be on the lookout for added sugar.
Bacon and Sausages: Preferably, you should buy these at specialty health food stores. If this is not possible, always read the labels to avoid those which contain fillers such as soy or sugars.
Canned Tuna and Salmon: Canned tuna and salmon are okay to consume while you are on the keto diet. However, avoid seafood rich in fillers, breaded seafood, and fried seafood.
Vegetable Protein Powders: Protein supplements such as whey protein, hemp protein, pea, and rice are acceptable.
Whole Eggs: This includes chicken eggs, and quail eggs which you can prepare through any mean desired; fried, soft or hard boiled, deviled, scrambled, or omelet style.
Shellfish: Oyster, mussels, lobster, shrimp, crab (not imitation crab that contains additives), clams, scallops, and squid.
2. Fats and Oils
Because these are your main sources of energy while you are on this diet, go for the types of fats and oils you enjoy.
These may include:
* Omega 3 fatty acids from fish such as tuna, shellfish, and salmon
* Fish supplements or krill
* Monounsaturated fats such as egg yolks, avocado, and butter
* Vegetable oils such as olive oil, coconut oil
* Non-hydrogenated beef tallow, ghee, and lard.
* Duck and chicken fat
In order to make it easier to stick to this diet, be aware of which types of fat your body can tolerate. Many people seem to have zero or very low tolerance of vegetable oils and mayo.
This may be a good thing because most of these oils are rich in omega 6 fatty acids - the kind that is bad for your body’s cholesterol levels.
In this case, work with the listed monounsaturated fats to reduce the inflammatory effect brought about by polyunsaturated fats.
Nevertheless, work to balance both fats because you cannot survive on monounsaturated fats alone (You need a lot of fats and oils). Even then, avoid hydrogenated fats such as margarine to reduce the amount of trans-fats you eat.
3. Fresh Vegetables
For these foods, opt for organic ones or better yet, grow your own to avoid all pesticide toxins.
Avoid starchy vegetables (corn, sweet potatoes, potatoes, peas, and winter squash) that are high in carbs. Instead, opt for moderate intake of sweet vegetables (squashes, peppers, tomatoes, and carrots).
Vegetables that make it to the list are:
- Collard Greens
- Onions (high in sugar; moderate intake)
- Alfalfa Sprouts
- Beet Greens
- Dandelion Greens
- Bamboo Shoots
- Brussels sprouts
- Bok Choy
- Celery Root
- Swiss chard
- Snow Peas
- Bean Sprouts
- Salad greens and lettuces: Romaine, Arugula, Fennel, Bok Choy, Boston lettuce, Endive, Mache, Escarole, Sorrel, Radicchio, Chicory Water Chestnuts
- Dill Pickles
4. Dairy Products
- Mascarpone cheese Unsweetened whole milk yogurt (limit intake of this type of yogurt because it is a little high in carbs)
- All soft and hard cheeses
- Cream cheese
- Full fat sour cream (do not forget to check for additives)
- Full fat cottage cheese
- Heavy whipping cream
In any case, always go for raw milk products and if you do not have easy access to them, go for the organic ones.
- Bulletproof coffee
- Decaf Tea
- Flavored seltzer water
- Decaf coffee
- Herbal tea
- Lemon and lime juice (limit intake)
- Clear broth or bouillon
6. Nuts and Seeds
- Nuts: almonds, macadamias, pecans, and walnuts are the nuts with the lowest level of carbs meaning you can consume them in small amounts. Other nuts such as chestnuts, pistachios, and cashews contain a higher amount of carbs; thus, you should carefully monitor their intake. Nuts are best soaked for some time before roasted.
- Nut flours: these are necessary because while you are on this diet, it does not mean baking no longer fits into your life. Nut flours such as almond flour will suffice.
Some options include:
- Inulin and Chicory root
- Lo Han Guo
- Liquid Stevia
Here are spices allowed on the keto diet:
- Sea salt
- Chili pepper
- Cilantro or coriander seeds
- Black pepper
- Cumin seeds
- Cayenne pepper
- Mustard seeds
As you can see from the above very detailed list, keto diet is NOT a highly-restrictive dieting lifestyle, it also offers you a variety of foods to choose from; thus, you should not feel overwhelmed.
However, there are foods you should avoid to achieve optimal ketosis as your body makes the switch from using glucose to synthesizing fats for ketones.
In the next section, we shall outline the foods you should avoid:
Foods to Avoid on a Keto Diet
If you stick to the food listed in the previous section, you do not have to worry about not achieving optimal ketosis.
On the same note, as you increase intake of those foods, you should also be on the lookout for the following foods that may hinder ketosis:
Avoid all grains, whole meal included (rye, wheat, oats, barley, corn, millet, rice sorghum and buckwheat). Also, avoid all products made from grains; these include foods such as crackers, pasta, pizza, and cookies.
Avoid refined fats and oils like sunflower, canola, grape seed, corn oil, soybean, and Trans-fats such as margarine.
Avoid milk (only full-fat raw milk is acceptable). For coffee, replace milk with reasonable amounts of cream.
Avoid tropical fruits such as bananas, pineapples, mango papaya, etc., and some high carb fruit.
Avoid fruit juice.
Avoid factory-farmed pork and fish.
Avoid all artificial sweeteners containing Aspartame, Sucralose, Saccharine, etc.
Avoid alcoholic sweet drinks such as beer, and sweet wine
Avoid Soy products
Now that you know what to eat and what to avoid, is there a way to guarantee faster adoption of ketosis? The answer is yes.

In fact it’s so powerful that, depending on how much you’re overweight, it allows you to lose up to 20 pounds of fat, flab and fluids in just 30 days, and amazing as it may seem.
you can lose this awesome amount of weight, while you are still allowed three very filling meals a day!
Real meals, mouth watering delicious meals, meals that give you that wonderful satisfying feeling that you’ve really eaten when you get up from the table.
But, best of all, it’s based on science, factual science, not false claims nor empty promises, and I’ll stake my reputation on it.
• NO calorie counting.
• NO side effects, natural, gentle, safe.
• NO caffeine, or harmful stimulants.
• NO nervousness or irritability.
• NO Unsafe Pills to take
You see, being an astute student that specializes in weight loss and more notably the Atkins Version of the low carb diet for more than 10 years.
I’ve learned a great deal about how you can successfully destroy your stubborn fat, once and for all! How you can actually shed all your unwanted pounds and inches and reverse years of over eating without the pain and effort you may have thought it once took.
How you can definitely lose your embarrassing fat and flab, even if you’ve failed time and time again!
And my number one fat burning secret, the secret that has helped so many overweight people just like you lose weight the easy way can be boiled down to simply this.
No matter what you’ve been told – trying to lose weight the hard way, the way that requires tons of effort, deprivation, and lots of will power, just doesn’t work!
It’s not counting calories or even starving yourself that really makes the difference between a fat unhealthy-unattractive body, and a lean, healthy, beautifully attractive body.
Why? Because your body will compensate for radically decreased caloric intake and actually slow down the burning of fat.
And even worse, when you go off your starvation diet, your body will overcompensate and continue what’s called the “starvation response,” which in plain words means you can actually gain back more weight than you may have temporarily lost!
Weight Is Managed,
Fortunately, there’s now a way to lose weight that doesn’t require counting calories or starving yourself, that doesn’t require the deprivation and suffering associated with conventional dieting!
It’s what I call the easy way to lose weight, and it’s my number one secret for having a beautiful, slim, stunning body
My number one secret for enjoying the rest of your life as a happy, healthy, permanently thin person.
It’s really quite extraordinary, even if I do say so myself! For your nutritional health and well being, I’ve formulated an entire 30 day low carb diet system that can literally trick your body into burning excess stored fat.
while you happily eat 3 filling meals a day! It’s a process known to medical doctors, as ketosis and I absolutely guarantee that it works.
The process is literally so effective that it can cause your body to go into an almost non-stop fat burning frenzy while you continue to eat your 3 filling, delicious meals each day.
A fat burning frenzy that virtually destroys stubborn fat from your entire body, even from hard to reach areas like neck and chin fat.
A fat burning frenzy so powerful that I can only recommend that you use the ketosis activating 30 Day Low Carb Diet system for one 30 day cycle at a time! Then you may need to adjust your carb intake upward a bit.
That’s right! It’s a fact! Once you try this powerful and effective method for non-stop fat destruction you may be tempted (because it’s so incredibly easy) to use it longer than 30 days
But I highly recommend that you either, increase your carbs or add a few low carbs snacks in each day, and most importantly, get prior authorization from a professional Medical Dr.
After this you can go back on what I call the Fat Burning Cycle and lose additional pounds.
And even if you have one hundred pounds or more to lose, you can repeat the Fat Burning Cycle as many times as necessary.
I’m very proud to say, I’ve spent years researching and then carefully developing this diet system that tricks your body into relentlessly burning body fat.
while you continue to eat your full three mouth-watering, real food meals each day. And you should know that the longer you follow the 30-Day Low Carb Diet 'Ketosis Plan' the closer you will be in your desire to achieve the beautiful, attractive and healthy body of your dreams!
The real reason why you can actually lose up to twenty pounds in 30 days the easy way is due to the powerful ketosis activating in my diet system.
And with the ketosis activating diet system you get to do the one thing everybody else has told you not to do! You get to eat without counting calories! And I mean EAT! 3 fully satisfying meals a day!
East so much that one of my friends almost fainted in disbelief when she stepped on the scale after just two weeks and witnessed the incredible amount of pounds and inches that seemingly vanished!
Just imagine being able to eat regular meals for an entire month, enjoying yourself like never before, and then fitting into clothes you once thought impossible to wear.
Imagine, thirty short wonderful days and you can kiss up to twenty pounds of fat, flab and excess fluids goodbye.
Thirty short days to a leaner, more seductive body.
It’s truly the easy way to lose weight!

The Ketosis Process: What to Expect
While most diets like the Mediterranean diet or paleo diet do not have much of a transition phase, the keto diet has one. It takes about 5 to 7 days for the human body to go into ketosis.
During this stage and process, there will be a few ‘repercussions’ and changes that you can expect to see. Let’s look at what they are.
The keto flu
Perhaps the most dreaded consequence of the keto diet is the keto flu. While it doesn’t affect everyone, it does affect enough people to make it something to fear.
The good news is that the keto diet is harmless and any symptoms you may experience are temporary. The common symptoms you may notice are: irritability, brain fog, mood swings, lethargy, constipation, flu-like symptoms, headaches, nausea, etc.
The body is starting to detox and cleanse itself. All the toxins being released and cleared are having a negative effect on the body. This is par for the course. You will feel worse before you feel better.
After the first week
By the end of the first week, if you’ve been following the diet correctly, you’d be in a state of ketosis. You can check this with a ketone meter. You should also have gotten over keto flu.
You’ll notice that you’ve lost some weight. This may be encouraging but it’s mostly water weight. Since every gram of carbohydrates retains 3 grams of water, after a week on the keto diet, you’ll have very little carbs left in your body.
So, there’s much lower water retention. This explains the weight loss.
Week 3 is where the magic happens. You’ll feel better than you’ve ever felt before. You’ll experience more energy, increased mental clarity and a sense of ‘lightness”.
Ketosis is working for you round the clock and burning your fat stores. You’ll notice more weight loss, but this time, quite a bit of the weight lost will be fat and not just water.
You may also not believe the results and wonder if it’s even possible. After all, you’ve tried out the other diets and none worked as well. Have faith, it only gets better.
By now you’re a HUGE fan of the keto diet. You’ve lost more weight than you have with any other diet before. The numbers on the scale have dropped considerably. Your friends and family notice that you’ve lost quite a bit of weight.
Besides that, you have a ton of energy. You rarely feel tired. In fact, you’re so energetic that you find it hard to sleep. This is one of the downsides of the keto diet. It can affect your sleep patterns… but after a while, things will return to normal.
Week 5 and 6
You’ll notice that your performance during physical activities gets remarkably better. You have more energy to expend and feel less tired. Your stamina improves too.
If you’re not on a regular exercise regimen, it’s time to get on one and workout. You’ll find that you enjoy the physical exertion.
After week 6, it’s just a matter of maintaining the diet and staying in ketosis. By the end of month two, you’d have lost so much weight you’d be shouting from the rooftops about the benefits of the keto diet.
How to Reach Ketosis
Ketosis is a state where your body is burning fat for fuel. Usually, there will be ketones in your blood (which is nothing to panic about) and your weight will drop off much faster.
You’ll want to monitor your ketosis with ketone urine testing strips to make sure all is safe.
To reach a state of ketosis, you’ll need to train your body to burn fat for fuel. The best way to do that will be to get most of your calories from fat. You daily diet should consist of about 20 to 50 grams of carbs, and 20 to 25% of your calories should come from protein.
All the rest should come from fat. This is a very fat-rich diet. By eating the fats, your body will realize that it doesn’t need to retain fat stores. It has ample amounts of fat coming in. So, your body burns your fats more readily.
This is the reason why the keto diet is so powerful. It encourages the body to release the fat it’s clinging on to. There are a few ways you can speed up this process.
Intermittent fasting (IF)
On its own, IF is a very powerful protocol. But when combined with a ketogenic diet, it is unstoppable. You will reach ketosis much faster and burn off the fat at your fullest potential.
Your body will be burning as much fat as it can within a given period.
While you won’t see results overnight, your fat loss journey will be greatly accelerated and you’re losing weight optimally
Engage in daily exercise that will help to deplete your glycogen stores. Ideally, you may wish to consume all your carbs in one meal. In the keto diet, it’ll probably not be much anyway.
Once you consume the carbs, your glycogen stores will be filled. The best way to drain them will be to exercise an hour or so after your meal.
If you consume your carbs early in the day, the training session will deplete the glycogen reserves and leave your body in fat burning mode for the rest of the day.
This may seem counterproductive. How does being patient speed up ketosis? Simple. You get out of your own way.
It may take up to a week for your body to reach ketosis. Many people are impatient and expect to be in ketosis after 24 hours or two days. If it takes longer, they try to do more by eating more fat or exercising even harder.
Two things can happen here, you end up in a caloric surplus that leads to weight gain, or you exercise to a point where your body is burnt out. Fat loss becomes even more difficult. The goal is to approach the keto diet gradually and sensibly.
If you follow the rules, you will be in a state of ketosis anywhere from 4 to 7 days. Give yourself that time to adapt.
A ketogenic diet is a slightly tricky one because you’re only in control for about 50% of the time. The rest is up to your body – at least initially. Once you master it, you’ll never look back. This is one of the best diets for weight loss. Period.
9 Signs That You are in Ketosis
There are several ways to test and see if you’re in ketosis. You could use urine test strips, a breathalyzer or even a blood test kit where you prick your finger on a lancet and test you blood.
However, if you do not wish to spend any money on resources for testing, you can always look out for a few signs that will be given off by your body when it’s in ketosis.
While it may not be as accurate as a blood test, if you’re following the diet principles correctly and see these signs, it’s safe to assume that you’re in ketosis and just need to carry on what you’re doing to maintain the ketogenic diet.
1. Bad breath
This is one of the first signs of ketosis. It’s similar to morning breath when you wake up in the morning in a fasted state. What you’ll be smelling is acetone as the body uses ketones for fuel.
You can get over this little problem by drinking water with peppermint or spearmint in it. Alternatively, you could use a sugar-free mint.
2. Decrease in physical performance
In the initial stages of the keto diet, you’ll feel a lack of energy and lethargy. This is one of the signs that you’re going into ketosis.
Your body is adapting to the keto diet and while some people may not experience many side effects, most people will face some issues.
If you’re exercising, you’ll notice that your performance is not up to your usual standards. Ideally, you should rest during the first 4 to 7 days on a keto diet.
Give your body time to get used to the diet and make the switch from burning glucose to burning fat for fuel.
3. Digestive issues
Another very common symptom of going into ketosis are digestive issues. You may experience diarrhea or constipation. The body is cleansing itself and this is normal.
You may wish to include some fibrous vegetables such as broccoli in your diet to aid with the process. Do note that you shouldn’t exceed more than 50 grams of vegetables.
4. Increase in energy
If you suddenly feel like you are more energetic than ever before, you’re most probably keto-adapted and have successfully adopted the diet.
Most people who reach ketosis report a sudden increase in energy and mental clarity.
One of the most common problems with going on the keto diet is insomnia. It’s also a sign that the body is going into ketosis.
This is normal and once you’re used to the keto diet, sleep will come easily, and you’ll feel better rested.
6. Keto flu
Flu like symptoms are common when you’re going into ketosis. Your body is detoxing and getting used to the change in diet.
Nothing to panic about. In about 5 or so days, you’ll not experience anymore symptoms.
7. Loss of hunger
The keto diet reduces your appetite. This is especially true when you’re combining it with intermittent fasting.
Since your body is now burning fat for fuel (ketosis), it’s much more efficient and can always tap into its fat stores – unlike people who burn glucose for fuel and always need more carbs and food when their glycogen stores are low.
8. Strong sweat smell
If your perspiration and urine have a strong smell, you’re probably in ketosis too.
9. Weight loss
In the first week of the keto diet, you’ll find that you’re urinating frequently. Ketosis causes the body to lose a lot of water weight. Since you have less glucose in your body, there’s less water retention.
It’s common for people to lose 5 to 10 pounds of water weight in the first week alone.
This is one of the most common signs of ketosis. If you notice that you’re experiencing several of these signs, it’s safe to assume that you’re in ketosis.

If you are not happy with the result. It doesn't feel right to keep your money. So I want to make it easy to request a refund.
Just to be clear. There is no obligation to prove that you did not lose weight with THE 28 DAY KETO CHALLENGE and I promise that no one will ask you to prove anything like that. I'll give you the money back, no questions asked.
Download my e-book THE 28 DAY KETO CHALLENGE, read it, and if you don’t like it, then just email me and I’ll give you all your money back. I’m taking a risk by doing this.
I can’t make you give the e-book back. I can’t get the atoms back off your computer when you download the digital ebook, so you could just order the e-book, ask for a refund and rip me off, but I’m going to trust that you’re not going to do that to me.
More than 98,674 people have gone through my program and most of them have succeeded! Those who did not succeed were those who did not try. They bought THE 28 DAY KETO CHALLENGE and asked for a refund after one week! You know they didn't try.
The total value you get with my books is worth at least $85
We are talking about a proven program that will help you lose weight naturally. I know people who pay a lot of money for surgery.
If you are not at the weight level that needs surgery. And all you need is proper guidance. A personal trainer would probably cost you a lot more than $85
If all of this would make you lose your excess weight, isn't it worth it?
But I'm not going to charge you $85 on THE 28 DAY KETO CHALLENGE
Product, I'm going to charge you only $39
The reason behind this discount is because I want to help as many people like you to reach your body goals.
