4 ways to make your keto diet successful
It is one thing to challenge yourself with Keto diet but it is another thing to actually achieve the desired results. Ever wondered why Keto works for some people and not for others. What are they doing right that you missed? Whether your goal is weight loss or just better stamina to climb those 10 stories in your office every day, here are 4 ways to make your keto diet successful:
Incorporate regular exercise into your daily routine. Resistance training, and low-intensity exercises like walking exercises along with running sprints not only help get into and maintain Ketosis, they also help balance blood sugar. Lower blood sugar is a typical complaint that keto followers see in the initial days of trying out this diet. The one thing that can help maintain it, is certainly a regular active lifestyle in terms of workouts.
Get enough Sodium into your body
When on a ketogenic diet, your kidneys excrete more sodium. Drinking broth, using pink Himalayan salt and taking sprouted and salted pumpkin seeds are a few ways to get that additional dose of sodium. Also, if you are already doing regular workouts in addition to your dietary changes, then the sweating will lead to the loss of salt from the body. You don't want to keep feeling weak all day this way.
Say no to stress:
When in stress, our body raises up hormones that elevate blood sugar and lower ketones. It will be a good idea to stay away from Ketosis if you are going through a rough patch. Try low carb and anti-inflammatory diets instead. Often, people think there are just two sides of fitness - Food and Exercise. But what we all miss is that having a calm mind is the third side of fitness. Unless you are happy from inside, you cannot look beautiful outside.
Get enough sleep:
Poor sleep ruins your chances of getting into and maintaining a Ketosis diet. So, get enough sleep. This is also related to the above point of staying stress-free. Any doctor will tell you that lack of sleep leads to anxiety and stress. And a stressful lifestyle leads to hormonal imbalances. Instead of blaming the hormones, let's get into bed on time and wake up on time. This is a huge lifestyle improvement if you want a successful keto diet.
