Set your goal

Before doing anything regarding a new diet or a change of lifestyle, ask yourself what you’re looking to get out of this diet. Ask yourself the hard questions, such as who am I doing it for, why am I doing it, etc. When you’ve established your goal, you’ll be ready for the next step. Take a look at some of our keto stories.

Start simple

The worst thing you can do is go cold turkey and eliminate all the foods that you consider to be bad all at once. Not only will it be harder to commit, but chances are also higher that you’ll relapse. Instead, focus on eliminating a few foods every week, and as you progress, you’ll be able to cut down on more non-keto food.

Keep the bad food away

This ultimately means, don’t keep anything that could be a possible temptation at the house. Get rid of the cookies, the cakes, starchy vegetables, or whatever you tend to crave – it’ll be much easier to commit to your new diet if you don’t have any distractions in front of you.
