Why People Fail At Keto Pt 1
This is a big subject on the one hand, but pretty simple on the other.
People “fail” when they don’t do the diet correctly, and/or, they quit.
The diet works every time it’s tried, if it’s done right. Even people who genetically need more carbs than others. can still succeed.
Everyone knows about dieting. Denying yourself, trying desperately to hold on without splurging.
Well, that is not what keto is all about. If you do it right, you should be able to keep those hunger pangs at low levels or even have none at all.
Here are the reasons people fail.
1. Not prepared
This is not a salad diet where you can stop in at any restaurant and grab something. You have to plan your meals, your macros, and your recipes.
We have a ‘Done For You’ plan that takes away this entire part of your preparation. It’s a 28 day meal plan that can be used over and over because there are lots of substitutions. You can see it at rockthatketo.com/sk .
One of the symptoms of the first week or two on keto is brain fog. Your brain uses sugar normally, so when you switch it to ketones, it takes a little time to adjust.
If you think you are going to sit and figure out your macros, meals, and recipes all from scratch while your brain is on ½” capacity, you are planning to fail. Do it ahead of time so there is no thinking involved when the time comes. This is a big reason why people fail at keto.
2. Eat Too Many Calories
It’s easy to get in the mindset that calories don’t matter in keto. They don’t in the traditional sense where you carefully count calories in each meal. We count macros, the balance between protein, carbs, and fats.
However, you can still overdo it. Even though we don’t count calories, you should keep it within reason. Those calories do have to go somewhere.
3. Eat Too Much Protein
People get it in their minds that Keto is a high protein diet. It is not. It is moderate to low protein. Too much protein can actually make glycogen spike as it breaks down.
As your body adjusts to the new regimen, your stamina and endurance will increase. There are many athletes on keto, including distance runners. You just have to be patient at the beginning, as you won’t feel much like running a marathon as your body adjusts.
4. Too Few Calories!
I know, it sounds weird. Keto is so good at regulating your hunger, you may not eat enough. Sounds good, right. You have to get to that state before you worry about it.
Instead of thinking of keto as losing weight, think of it as a diet that makes your body just right, which includes your weight. The body will naturally fall into it’s best shape. It’s a beautiful thing when it happens.
That’s part one of why people fail at keto. There’s more, but nothing you can’t handle.
