A 7-Day Sample Menu for the Keto Diet

When we cut the carbs from our diet we can lower the insulin resistance, which causes the type 2 diabetes. All diets which are low in carb and combined with exercise are really effective in preventing type 2 diabetes and its progression.

Also, when you reach the state of ketosis you will not feel hungry and you will not have cravings. You will also cut the calorie intake and you will lose fat faster.

Getting Started
It takes some time until your body gets into the state of ketosis. Your body will need around two weeks to adapt into the new way of eating. You will have struggles during this time, and you may experience fatigue, headaches, or GI issues, which are commonly known as the ‘’keto flu’’.

Sample Menu for the Keto Diet

However, when you take enough electrolytes and stay hydrated you will correct these issues. You shouldn’t worry about the calorie intake in the beginning because you will lose weight when you cut the sugar, processed foods, and carbs.

The following Keto meal plan is made so you can get three healthy and well-balanced meals per day that will contain enough protein and fiber to keep you full. The best thing about this diet is that you will not lose the muscle mass. When you are on a high carb diet you will lose both muscles and fat, but on the Keto diet you will only burn fat.
