To follow a ketogenic diet and be successful with it you need to make sure you have a good ketogenic plan on how to loose weight and follow your diet. If you do not create a ketogenic plan it will be so much easier to fail with your new lifestyle. The first step is to find out which kind of diet that suits you the best, and there are many alternatives. Some examples of some ketogenic diets is LCHF, Paleo and the Atkins diet. Read about the different alternatives there are and then choose the one you feel is most suitable for you and the kind of ketogenic diet you want.
After you have chosen which kind of diet you want to follow make sure you create your ketogenic plan. One of the most important things to consider first is to ensure you do not eat more than 25 grams of carbohydrates per day. If you eat more than 25 grams of carbohydrates it will be almost impossible to get into ketosis which is the purpose with a ketogenic diet.
The amount of fat you should eat should be around 80 percentage of your total energy intake during a day. The amount of protein that you eat is also important so make sure you do not eat too much protein. A good goal is around 1.5 grams per kilo of body weight.
When you start out with your ketogenic plan you should ensure that you clean out all bad food that you have in your home and make sure you replace it with low carb and high fat food instead. Following a ketogenic plan will be so much easier if you do not have a lot of high carbohydrate food at home that will tempt you.
Another good advice is to start counting your daily food intake and check how much fat, protein and cabohydrates that you actually eat. It is easy to think that you eat enough of fat but many people actually fail with their ketogenic plan just because they eat too little fat.
