Top 10 Tips To Prevent Sabotaging Your Keto Diet

Everyone who starts a keto diet will feel the need to cheat from time to time. You can prevent sabotaging your keto diet with a few simple steps. Believe me from experience I know it can be tough but there are ways to make it easier to succeed. 

We often stack the deck against ourselves and don’t even realize it. Since sticking to a any kind of diet can sometimes be challenging, it only makes sense to give yourself every possible advantage by removing or planning for the most likely obstacles.

Top 10 Tips To Prevent Sabotaging Your Keto Diet

Use these tips to stick to your keto diet and experience success:

Keep foods out of the house that don’t fit your keto diet plans.

You can’t eat it if it’s not in your house. Get it out before it creates a challenge. Go through your refrigerator and pantry and identify all the foods you shouldn’t eat. Give it all away.

Drink lots of water.

We often eat because we’re thirsty, especially items like fruit, which contain a lot of water. Water is also filling if you drink enough of it. The recommended amount of water to drink per day when you’re following a ketogenic lifestyle is at least on half of your body weight in ounces. 

Don’t give in to temptations.

When you get the temptation and have the urge to eat something you know you shouldn’t, don’t give in right away. Just sit and relax. Give it a few minutes. You’ll often find that the urge goes away.

Focus on your health.

Eating something that’s unhealthy feels great in the short-term. One way to give yourself a long-term focus is to make your health a priority. What is your BIG WHY for reaching your goals? You’ll be less likely to sabotage yourself if you’re thinking long-term.

Avoid cutting back too far.

Those unwanted pounds probably took years to accumulate. Give yourself some time to get rid of them. There’s a lot of evidence that losing weight to quickly is a poor long-term strategy. Cutting your calories too much will also make you much more likely to sabotage the progress that you’ve made.

Weigh or measure food.

Food scales are inexpensive. So are measuring cups and spoons. Ensure that you understand how much you’re actually eating. You might be surprised how far off you are.

Avoid over dramatizing mistakes.

As much as you wan to be effective, mistakes will happen and can cause a temporary setback. Shake it off and accept that mistakes happen from time to time.

Make fiber your friend.

Fiber is healthy and filling. Most people don’t get enough fiber. You can make it a point to eat foods high in fiber. A high-fiber meal is very satiating, and the feeling lasts for quite a while. Some of the best keto foods to eat with fiber are chia seeds, flax seeds, avocados, raw coconut, pumpkins seeds (pepitas), pecans, green leafy vegetables (collard greens, spinach), almonds, cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage), bell peppers and mushrooms.

Eating out.

What’s not to love about going out to eat? But when it comes to nutrition and your health, making your way through a restaurant menu is like walking through a minefield. Many foods contain added bad fats, salt, sugar and preservatives … and excess calories.

In fact, many meals contain more than enough calories to fuel you for an entire day. Download the Dining Out Guide to help you make the best choices no matter what cuisine you’re eating.

Get some exercise.

Exercise is useful in a few ways. It decreases your appetite. It helps to burn some calories. It makes it more painful to cheat on your diet. Knowing that you worked hard to burn 300 calories on the exercise bike will make you less likely to undo all that hard work by eating poorly.
