KETO DIET PLAN

Choosing the right keto diet plan is important. I would say that all keto plans I have come across work; however, the key is not if they work but if they work for you. Finding a plan that works for you can be the difference between liking keto or hating it, continuing or giving up, the plan being easy or hard, enjoyable or an endurance test. Here is a breakdown of the types of keto diets you can have access to and also a guide to help you find out your dieting style.

Finding your Keto dieting style

Here is a rundown of different preferences people have when it comes to finding their keto dieting style. This is not an exhaustive list; however, I hope this will bring insight and allow you to see that the issue of not being able to stick out a diet might not be you at all but that you have selected the wrong diet for your needs.

  • Love heaps of meat or dislike red meat
  • Love veggies or can’t stand them
  • Love dairy or can’t tolerate dairy
  • Prefer clean food or love eating dirty

  • Nut allergy
  • Vegan

  • Like to be told what to eat and when
