If you're interested in trying out a ketogenic lifestyle to feel energized, lose some weight or even for preventative health, here are 5 tips to get you started!

1. Make A Plan

Study your foods and plan out what to eat. Aim for a diet that consists of about 70% of calories from fat, 20-25% from protein, and less than 10% from carbs. Using a meal replacement shake like KetoSys which is designed to fit that exact caloric profile, is a convenient and delicious way to keep on track.

2. Look For Opportunities

Look for chances to cut out sugar and increase your intake of healthy fats. One opportunity is to replace your ‘double-double’ coffee or tea with KetoMate, a delicious sugar-free coconut oil-based coffee or tea flavour booster. Each scoop delivers 6 grams of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs are healthy fats for instant energy) along with mental performance enhancing nootropics.

3. Just Add Water

Drink lots of water and be sure to replenish your electrolytes like sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium. Sea salt and bone broth are great ways to get adequate electrolytes in.

4. Don't Forget Your Micro-Nutrients

Take a multivitamin. Keto diets tend to avoid fruits, so ensuring you are getting enough of your essential vitamins is important to your general health and metabolism. A supplement like KetoVita combines 8 essential vitamins to support energy and metabolism along with exogenous ketones to give your brain and body a great energy boost!

5. Track Your Journey

Log your keto journey. Track foods, exercise, calories and your mood. Try intermittent fasting or an extended fast occasionally to boost your immune system and ramp up your body’s ketone production.
