In this article, I’m going to share some of my best tips and tricks for Healthy Keto and intermittent fasting.
16 Best Keto and Intermittent Fasting Tips/
#1 – Have MCT oil in your coffee every morning to reduce hunger and cravings. Start with one tablespoon.
Tip #2 – Blend one whole lemon in water. This provides a boost of vitamin C and phytonutrients. Add stevia or electrolyte powder to enhance the flavor and nutrients.
Tip #3 – Have one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water in the afternoon. This helps improve insulin sensitivity and energy.
#4 – Have a large salad before each meal to help you achieve 7 to 10 cups of vegetables a day.
#5 – Add non-fortified nutritional yeast flakes to your salad and other foods to replenish your B vitamins, reduce stress, and enhance flavor.
#6 – Replenish electrolytes and B vitamins to prevent keto flu symptoms.
#7 – Have 3 to 6 oz of protein per meal. You can have up to 8 oz if you exercise and have a great metabolism.
#8 – Add additional fat to the end of your meal to increase your fasting window and reduce cravings.
#9 – Increase the quality of your foods. Always choose organic, grass-fed, pasture-raised, and wild-caught products—they contain more nutrients. Avoid processed foods.
#10 – Use herbal tea to help you fast longer.
#11 – Don’t snack—especially after dinner and during your fasting window. Never keep snack foods in your home.
#12 – Get quality sleep. Poor sleep increases cortisol, hunger, and cravings. Exercise and sun exposure during the day will increase melatonin at night. Vitamin B1 and 10,000 IU of vitamin D will also help improve your sleep.
#13 – Replenish your electrolytes after exercise with sea salt, vegetables, and electrolyte powder.
#14 – Check all products for hidden ingredients, like unhealthy artificial sweeteners, sugar, maltodextrin, and carbs.
#15 – If your appetite is gone, you know it’s working.
#16 – Something is better than nothing. Do dirty keto and work your way up to Healthy Keto if you need.
