Keto diet for beginners: Meal ideas & tips

Originally designed to treat medication-resistant epilepsy in children, the ketogenic diet has become popular in recent years due to evidence that it can help with weight loss. Whatever the reason you are looking into a keto diet for beginners, we strongly recommend you consult a medical professional before embarking on any large-scale dietary changes. 

There are a few things to consider when working out if the keto diet is right for you. You might want to look at specific types of keto, as the percentage of carbohydrates you are allowed to consume in comparison to other macronutrients can differ. It’s also worth considering whether you’ll be able to sustain a keto diet for a period of several weeks or months. And since the goal of the diet is to trigger ketosis, you may need to try different variations and stick to it until your body has entered this metabolic state, so sustainability and motivation are important factors to think about too.
