Starting keto can be daunting. I constantly get questions about how to calculate macros, avoid the “keto flu”, and how to know if you are on the right track.
The first thing to do when switching to a keto lifestyle is calculate your macros. I use this Macro Calculator by Perfect Keto. It allows you to input your goals for Keto and takes them in to account as it calculates your target fats, proteins, carbs, and calories for the day.
I’ve head a lot of talk about the “keto flu” that some people experience in their first week of keto. Transitioning to the keto way of eating can be hard for everyone. The body goes through a lot transitioning from carb/sugar burning to become fat/ketone burning. However, I am certain that this “flu” has to do with a lack of electrolytes.
To ease the transition, be proactive about consuming:
Water with electrolytes (I use Smart Water)
Pink Salt (it is better than table salt), you need extra salt on Keto because you are not eating processed carbs that are full of salt
Extra salt: sip broth, take a shot of pickle juice, add pink salt to your water, you need extra salt on keto
Potassium rich foods (avocado and spinach have way more potassium than a sugary and very non-keto banana)
Magnesium rich foods (dark chocolate, nuts, artichoke, spinach, fish) and/or take a supplement.
So you’ve calculated your macros, stalked up on smart water and pink salt, and you are still nervous? Don’t be. You are on the right track. The next step is to grab a Perfect Keto Starter Bundle. It comes with my four favorite Perfect Keto products for great energy, recovery, and managing/maintaining Ketosis.
The Perfect Keto Starter Bundle comes with:
Exogenous Ketones -This base helps raise your ketone levels at any time of day for more energy and helps you get back on track after an unsuccessful day.
Keto Collagen Protein –This protein is paired with fats for slow absorption and the collegen is great for nails, skin, hair, and GI tract.
MCT Oil Powder- I love how versatile this MCT is: add it to anything for a mental boost and to satiate cravings.
Ketone Test Strips- These help so much in the first weeks of Keto.
Starting today you can save $28 dollars off of the already reduced price of $147. You can get all four products for $119 dollars. Just pick if you want Vanilla or Chocolate.
