I get asked a lot of what can you eat on keto and decided it was time to write a post on a keto grocery list for beginners. I find that starting simple is the way to go so you don’t get overwhelmed with food options. Once you get the hang of it, you can start adding more foods into your diet. These are the basics to get you started including a free printable list to take to the store with you.
How do I get started on Keto?
Before you start make sure you know everything about Keto such as benefits, side effects, and such. I wrote everything about it in this Beginners Guide to Keto article.
How much weight can I lose on Keto?
Weight loss varies for each person so there is not a definite answer for this. The first few weeks you will probably notice a large amount of weight loss and that will mostly be water weight. After that the weight loss may gradually come off slower. If the scale hasn’t budge for awhile don’t give up. Keep at it and it will eventually come off. If you need some help with getting the weight to come off try these tips to help break a keto weight loss stall.
What can I eat on Keto?
The ketogenic diet about following a low-carb, high fat plan. Most food items that are keto approved are fish, meats, cheese, healthy fats, limited veggies and fruits along with a few other items. While this may not seem like a huge selection, there is actually a variety of things you can prepare with the foods you can eat that you’ll be surprised by. Check out this list of keto recipes to try.
What foods should I avoid on keto?
Since you need to limit your carb intake on the keto diet, there are certain foods you should avoid when following it. Those foods would be grains, fruits that are not berries, veggies that grow beneath the ground, most milks, unhealthy fats, soda, and other items that have sugars in them.
