Just when you think you've got the keto diet figured out, your scale seems to be stuck, well, maybe it's because you are making these 4 common mistakes.
Keto diet: 4 common mistakes that might be slowing down your weight loss
1. Becoming overindulgent
Have you been eating too much meat? Animal proteins are packed with saturated fats, that not only could make you gain weight but also increase the risk for heart disease.
2. Not getting enough vegetables
Keto is a high-fat diet, but that does not mean that you should eat lots of dairy and red meat. In fact, it is important to include antioxidants-packed foods such as leafy greens.
3. Choosing processed foods over whole foods
It is ok, you can eat processed meats once in a while, but regularly eating sausages, cheese, and other processed foods can increase the risk of cancer.
4. Doing without the fiber
Non-starchy sources of fiber such as spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, and asparagus are paramount to keep you fuller for longer periods and for your gut health.
