Simply put… Your Ketogenic Diet Plan is Wrong!
There are so many reasons why the majority of people struggle with trying to adapt on a ketogenic diet plan. I could write an entire book on this subject because there are so many factors involved with Keto adaptation.It can stem from previous damage to your body before starting a Ketogenic Diet Plan or stress from everyday life. But one thing I do notice is that most of the time, there is at least one thing wrong with what they are doing.
First of all… Keto adaptation should not be something to “obsess over”. Seriously! For some it may take weeks, others it may take months. The thing I want you to understand is that you can lose weight and feel really good on a keto diet plan without being “fully” adapted.So please don’t beat yourself over the head if you’re not “adapted”… As long as you’re feeling and looking your best, that’s all that matters.
With that being said… I listed my top 10 reasons from all the emails I receive and people I personally work with that may be holding you back…I know it can be hard trying to fight those uncontrollable urges to eat junk food. So make sure to avoid these common ketogenic diet plan mistakes that people often make.
Heavy Workouts are Deadly on a Keto Diet Plan
A couple years back, that was me… Slapping 315 lbs. on the weight bench and lifting my heart out. See when I first started keto no one told me that I had to exercise a different way. It resulted in me losing a ton of muscle and I was really frustrated and almost gave up on keto.Working out “heavy” basically just puts you in a catabolic state… Raising your cortisol, spiking your insulin looking for “that” immediate energy which is carbs. Since the carbs aren’t there, down goes your muscle mass!So do us both a favor and lighten the load! With keto your muscles recover a lot faster than being on a high carb diet. So lift lighter weights and workout at least 3-4 times a week.
