No lunch, oh no! Don’t worry – the fats from the morning should keep you feeling energized and full all the way through lunch. Normally people start hitting a wall at first at around 2pm, so make sure you have plenty of water to drink, drink, and drink.
This includes, but is not limited to, desserts, artificial sweeteners, smoothies, soda and fruit juice. Even condiments are usually filled with sugar, so put down the ketchup and mayo. If you are craving a dessert, try one of the keto-friendly dessert recipes listed on this site instead.
Try to balance out the protein in your meals with fattier side dishes and sauces. If you choose to eat lean beef, you have to be especially careful with the portioning of protein. Jerky and other beef snacks can add up in protein very fast, so make sure to pair it with something fatty – like cheese!
At the initial consultation, patients are screened for conditions that may contraindicate the diet. A dietary history is obtained and the parameters of the diet selected: the ketogenic ratio of fat to combined protein and carbohydrate, the calorie requirements and the fluid intake.
Caffeine-fiends are in luck: coffee is allowed on the ketogenic diet. The bad news? Sugar and milk are both off limits. If you can’t stomach the idea of drinking your coffee black, you can make bulletproof coffee, which is made by adding butter and coconut oil or concentrated MCT oil to your morning brew.
You can use my plan as a guideline to help you create something that fits into your life and schedule. Keep in mind that hitting your daily macros is the most important thing when it comes to dieting.
Beware of process and cured meats that can contain additives, chemicals, and added sugars. Also avoid breaded meats like fried chicken. Both can drastically increase your carb and sugar intake for the day.
Download My Fitness Pal app on your smart phone, change the macros to KETO ratio. Then log everything you eat. It will tell you if you’re in your macros or not, if you’re not, bump up the others to make it so or reduce what you’re over on.
This form rotates ketogenic days with high carb days, usually 5 ketogenic days, followed by 2 high carb days. Sometimes referred to as ketogenic carb cycling, this version of the keto diet can help maximize fat loss and build muscle.

NOTE: The main exception to ketoacidosis is type 1 diabetics – it can happen when insulin levels are severely low which is rare in someone with a normally functioning pancreas. Dangerously high ketone levels result in insulin secretion.
You can also get your potassium from leafy greens or salads, but you’re going to have to consume larger servings. That one-serving side salad they normally give you at the restaurant is not going to work.
The ketogenic diet reduces seizure frequency by more than 50% in half of the patients who try it and by more than 90% in a third of patients. Three-quarters of children who respond do so within two weeks, though experts recommend a trial of at least three months before assuming it has been ineffective. Children with refractory epilepsy are more likely to benefit from the ketogenic diet than from trying another anticonvulsant drug. There is some evidence that adolescents and adults may also benefit from the diet.
Starches to avoid include white and red potatoes, sweet potato, yams, white and brown rice, corn (even though it’s a vegetable) and cornstarch. Did you know that those puffed rice cereals or puffed rice cakes have glycemic responses that are near the top of the charts?
“I am a 61 y/o female. One year ago I weighed the most I’ve weighed in my life. At 5’9″ and 190 lbs I was not the correct height for my weight! In addition, my blood pressure and blood sugar were climbing. Today, thanks to Raj, the Keto coach, and his easy to follow diet and exercise plan, I weigh 145lbs and have lost a cumulative 33″ between my neck and my butt. My waist is 10.5″ smaller. That’s a 10.5″ inch loss of killer visceral fat. Body fat was making me sick. As a health care provider I know all too well that we are a nation of pill popping people to fix our illnesses. Unfortunately all medications have side effects. This was not a road I wanted to go down. I wanted to take charge of my health. After researching several “diet” strategies I felt a high fat low carb lifestyle would be best. For decades we’ve been told by nutrition experts and the FDA that fat is bad for us and causes high cholesterol. Guess what? That’s not true! CARBOHYDRATES cause inflammation, high cholesterol, high blood sugar and weight gain. Thanks Raj! You gave me my health back! The Keto-coach is a simple, effective way to approach and maintain this healthy lifestyle. If one person reads this and chooses to make this lifestyle change my testimony was not in vain.*”
For those looking for something just a little closer to real sugar, you can use Xylitol. It cooks and tastes very similar to sugar, but it has a slight glycemic impact (13 vs. 100 for sugar). It is great, but please keep in mind that it is very toxic to animals and it will raise insulin levels slightly. These are the two most cited reasons for not using Xylitol.
If there is not enough vitamin C, you lose collagen, which keeps your arteries strong. This condition triggers a cascade of events: from increase of bad cholesterol (called LDL) to the formation of calcium and white blood to a bandage (plaque), which is known as a clogged artery. The plaque is the effect of the damage caused by high insulin.
The high-fat diet includes moderate protein intake and very few carbs (about 75:20:5 by calorie percentage), and can help you shed pounds fast. When your body is unable to get glucose from carbs, your liver kicks in to convert fatty acids into clean-burning ketones. Running on ketones turns off inflammatory pathways, and keeps you away from the energy crashes and blood sugar spikes of a carb-fueled diet. The Bulletproof Diet uses cyclical intermittent keto as a powerful tool to fuel your brain and shed extra body fat, but you may want to try a full ketogenic diet too.
This initially doesn’t seem like a problem until you realize that the body can’t store that much glucose. This becomes an issue for you because the extra glucose gets converted into fat which is then stored.
Keep an eye on your intake for nut or seed based foods, as they can be quite high in inflammatory omega 6’s. These include items like almonds, walnuts, pine nuts, sunflower oil and corn oil. Eating fatty fish and animal meat, keeping snacking to a minimum, and not over-indulging in dessert items that are dense in almond flour is usually enough to keep your omega’s at normal ranges.
Soy products, including tofu, edamame, tempeh — these foods can vary in carbohydrates substantially, so read labels carefully; soybeans are fewer in carbs than most other beans, with only about 1–3 net carbs per 1/2 cup serving cooked
There are things concerning calories that are very important while some are very trivial. Most diets always emphasize that weight loss is about your calories. Simply eat less calories and you’ll manage your weight.
In yet another study, the ketogenic group lost 24.4 lbs (11.1 kg), compared to 15.2 lbs (6.9 kg) in the higher-carb group. This is an important benefit when considering the link between weight and type 2 diabetes (2, 31).
The ketogenic diet has being studied for potential therapeutic use in various neurological disorders other than epilepsy: Alzheimer’s disease (AD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), autism, headache, neurotrauma, pain, Parkinson’s disease (PD) and sleep disorders.
The exact amount you should eat to get into ketosis will differ from person to person. Your body fat percentage, how much weight you want to lose, as well as how much exercise you do all make a difference. So we suggest you use our Keto Calculator to figure out your exact macros (how many calories of fat, protein, and carbohydrates to eat).
For example, clinical improvement was observed in Alzheimer’s patients fed a ketogenic diet, and this was marked by improved mitochondrial function. (10b) In fact, a European Journal of Clinical Nutrition study pointed to emerging data that suggested the therapeutic use of ketogenic diets for multiple neurological disorders beyond epilepsy and Alzheimer’s, including headaches, neurotrauma, Parkinson’s disease, sleep disorders, brain cancer, autism and multiple sclerosis.
