Starting any new diet can be hard. Like really hard. So I completely understand when people aren’t able to stick to keto long term.

It can be really overwhelming to restrict calories and learn a whole new way to eat. So, the best way to combat this overwhelm is by preparing.

There are certain things that you can prepare for when you are starting keto.

Having a few keto snacks on hand at all times is a really easy way to be prepared and ensure your success.

There is nothing worse than sticking perfectly to your calorie and macros goals all day, only to load up on carbs at night because you are hungry and nothing else is available.

We live in a fast paced world and are constantly on the go. Between work, and kids, and social obligations, it seems that we are rarely home!

Don’t get caught off guard when the hunger strikes- if you plan your snacks and have a few go to options, you will be much more successful in the long run.
