3 Big Mistakes Keto Dieters Make & How to Fix Them

It's all about eating smart!

You’re eating too much protein

Yes, high-fat, high-protein, low-carb is the combo, but only when done right!

Like dairy, there is too much protein, and the wrong kinds at that. Bacon and a rib-eye might sound amazing, but they’re not supposed to be a part of your daily essentials. This is the case whether you’re following the Ketogenic diet or not.

Proteins should make up approximately 20% percent of the calories you consume per day. This is about 0.6 to 0.8 grams of protein per pound of the amount of lean body mass you have. If you go way over, you risk your body turning that unneeded protein into glucose.

Be sure you’re choosing the right protein. Carnivores and non-meat eaters alike will enjoy these 20 Protein-Packed Vegetarian Recipes and these 15 High-Protein Vegan Recipes.

Following a Ketogenic diet is simple once you understand that there is too much of a good thing. As with everything in life, moderation is key. This is one of the best outlooks to have for success, both for your health and various aspects of your life.

You can also follow a Ketogenic diet all you want, but if you’re overeating, be it on snacks or giant meals, you’re setting yourself back. It’s all about eating smart!
